The beaches of Malta and her little sister Gozo tend to veer more towards the dramatic with sea sculpted coastlines and rocky nooks and crannies. Yet those seeking something soft, blue and beautiful will love the infamous Blue Lagoon with its burst of bright white sand, turquoise pool colors and boats gliding on the horizon.

But beaches aren’t the only draw to these shores despite the balmy Mediterranean weather and the inviting waters. The fortress town of Mdina has now hit the headlines after being revealed as one of the filming locations for the popular Game of Thrones series and losing yourself in the labyrinth can be a delightful way to spend the day.
