    Thinking of going this year, any recommendations for resorts?

  • #2
    If its the beach that you want, any of the usual suspects will do nicely. For something a little different, investigate what Nicosia has to offer.

      Went to Ayia Napa years ago but was so far of my tits for the fortnight can't actually tell you much about it apart from beach being nice and not bad for wazzing around on a vespa ......
      There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.

            They used to have fantastic old fashioned multi coloured buses .....



            Apparently the EU banned them.

            St Pauls and St Juliens Bays are worth taking in

              Luckily we are in the St Paulís area, (Xemxija) so some good walking opportunities. Iíll be heading for the hills, heard there is a brilliant viewpoint in the area, where you can see the whole of the island.

                Yeah ... Me and the brother flew over there in the 90's to meet the rents who were out in Saudi with Bae and stayed in a complex in St Pauls bay. It was lush. A good place to be based and you can get anywhere by bus although it must be said they don't drive slowly around those cliff edges! Theres a lot of cultural influences and if you like Itialian food you'll be happy. I'd go back

                  Went to Malta years ago - nice places I can remember are Comino, Golden Sands, St. Julian's Bay, Popeye Village and the ones you have mentioned - we stopped in Bugibba and the beach was just oily rocks

                    We got back from Malta last week we got around a fair bit, we walked to Mehuillia? From Xemxjia,but it wasnt a good route, busy road and no pavements, there is a better option ( we later found) that you can acces from the Heritage trail. From this same trail we walked over to Golden Sands, and the next beach along, Riviera sands. There is another beach further along but we didnít get to that one. Both golden and riviera beaches are good sand, about half a mile between the two. The third beach is again, about half a mile on again. Went to Valetta didnít see much as we got the little gondola type boat over to Villatoria. When we got back we walked back towards the main square and it was heaving as Joseph Muscat was giving a speech, think it was at a labour rally. (The Maltese love the guy).

                    1.50 Euro anywhere on the island on public transport and providing you get back on the bus or get a connecting bus within two hours, you use the same ticket. e could have hired a car as they drive on the right, but they drive like maniacs. We are going to go back.

                            Malta was a British colony
                            Effectively a good naval staging post

                              Yep thought there was another reason for a minute, apparently it had more bombs dropped on it during the war than London. We went in the air raid shelters in Meheullia ( think thatís how itís spelt) 300 yards of them cut out of the rock by hand, with little rooms off them. It was a main point that everyone wanted due to its naturally deep harbours. It was key the the war effort in Africa. They took a lot of flak the Maltese.
