Logistics in Malta

Jump to last reply


I am hoping to visit Malta in April. I appreciate your time in responding to these questions I could not find answers to via online searches.

1. Do most countries fly directly into Malta (Valletta) these days? Is airfare relatively affordable in April?
2. On Malta island itself, I plan to visit (A) Valletta, (B) Birgu (a.k.a. Vittoriosa), (C)
Hypogeum of Ħal-Saflieni (a subterranean archeological structure), (D) Ħaġar Qim & Mnajdra Temples, (E) Mdina, (F) Mellieha Bay and (G) Birzebbugia. Am I better off renting a car to get around (like they do on the Greek Islands and Mallorca, Spain) or should I rely on public transportation?
3. In total, how long would it take me to get from Valletta to Victoria, Gozo? I only wish to make the daytrip if convenient. Could I do a daytrip or am I way off in understanding the transportation involved (a bus ride to the Malta coast, then a ferry and finally a bus again)?
4. On which islands are the Alabaster Caves? Calypso Cave? Blue Grotto?

Thank you guys for your help. Charlie
