Car hire in Malta is a good option if you want to see the sights off the beaten track. Malta has a picturesque coastline with harbours, bays and creeks, beaches and rocky coves. You'll get to see all of these if you escape the resorts and organise car hire. Malta is a great spot whether you want an active or a relaxed holiday.
Get behind the wheel
You have to keep your eye on the road in Malta because anything could happen. Be particularly careful at intersections where give way rules are not always adhered to. There are a limited number of pedestrian traffic lights and many of the roads have pot holes. That said, car hire in Malta is a popular option - they drive on the left and it's one of the cheapest places to hire a car in Europe. A permit is needed to drive in the capital, Valletta, so ask if that is included in your hire cost.
Popular leisure activities
Most tourists head for the resorts and Valletta. However if you have a car you can explore the small villages which offer a very different Malta experience and offer a chance to explore the island's rich culture and history. The water in Malta is some of the clearest in the Med and there are pretty fish and coral which makes Malta a fantastic destination for snorkelling and scuba diving. Other water sports are also available from wind surfing to waterskiing. For sand you'll need to head to Mellieha Bay, but other resorts have smooth rocks to sunbathe on.
