Malta ranks among top ‘late summer sun destinations’

Malta has been named one of the best holiday destinations for late summer sun.

Malta was ranked alongside Sorrento, Ibiza, The Algarve and Cyprus in a list of the top eight places to visit in September for a ‘sunshine fix’.

Travel writer Liz Connor in The London Evening Standard said: ‘If you missed out on the chance to catch some rays earlier in the year, the good news is that there are still some brilliantly sunny destinations that can help you to get your sunshine fix.’

She added: ‘Londoners love to get lost in the exoticism of Malta, a nation known for historic sites from the Romans, Moors and Knights of St John, particularly in the Baroque capital of Valletta.

‘What it doesn’t have in beaches, it more than makes up for in brilliant hotels with Insta-worthy pools, terraces and sun spots.

‘If you’re looking for guaranteed sun, Malta is a safe bet when it comes to late summer getaways – the seaside destination gets more than 300 sunny days a year and is surrounded by some of the clearest waters in the Mediterranean.

‘Snorkel, swim or simply allow yourself a week to lazily soak up the rays poolside.’
