About Malta, Gozo and Comino


Amidst the eclectic architecture, fascinating history, and stunning beaches, there is no doubt that Malta is a uniquely charming and world class disabled holiday destination for wheelchair users. Calmly resting in the Mediterranean Sea, this archipelago is one of the smallest and most densely populated countries in the world.

When it comes to history, Malta is up there with Italy and Greece. The island boasts so many sights, it’s been described as an open-air museum. You’ll find the best of the bunch in the UNESCO-listed capital, Valletta - a beautiful, disabled city break. Must-sees include the 16th-century St John’s Cathedral and Casa Rocca Piccola, a grand palazzo. Malta’s other big draw is its coastline. It’s pretty rugged, with rocky coves mixed in with a few sandy spots. The biggest swathe of sand is at Mellieha Bay, while accessible resorts like Qawra and Bugibba have flat rocks and platforms for stretching out in the sun.

However if nightlife is what you're looking for, disabled holidays in Malta won't let you down. Sliema, on the east coast, is a former fishing village that’s now better known for its stylish restaurants and wine bars. Wander north along the promenade and you’ll hit St Julian’s, an upmarket town with a decent helping of bars and clubs. Both areas provide an abundance of accessible accommodation and disabled friendly activities.
