Drive on the…
Left, however, there is a joke in Malta that “we neither drive on the left nor the right, we drive in the shade!” So keep your eye out when coming around tight corners.
Share the road
Expect to share the road with donkeys and horse-drawn carts as well as overloaded cars.
Headlights must be on at all times.
Local drivers won’t usually give you a heads up when they’re going to change lanes or turn. Buses also have a tendency to not indicate before letting passengers off.

The Maltese Islands
The largest island – yet still comparably small next to most European destinations – Malta is your point of arrival and departure. Trace the country’s history here and explore the rocky coastlines or low hills of the countryside.
Main attraction: Mdina is an ancient and dramatic hilltop town. It is a must-see for anyone seeking to immerse themselves in history. The lavish architecture is breath-taking and will catch your eye around every corner.
Greener and more rural than Malta, Gozo has sleepy ambiance about it. Thought to be the isle of Homer’s Odyssey, it is steeped in history and legends. Gozo’s landscape is dotted with 46 churches, some big enough to fit all the residents of individual towns.
Main attraction: Azure Window, a limestone arch, carved above the sea. Unfortunately it collapsed in 2017, however, it was reborn as an underwater diving attraction.
The smallest of the three islands, (a mere 3.5 square kilometres), Comino is largely uninhabited. The island was formerly a hideout for pirates – today though, it is a car-free oasis for snorkelers, divers and landscape-loving photographers. There are daily ferries from both Malta and Gozo to Comino.
Main attraction: Blue Lagoon, a giant natural turquoise pool of crystal clear water. No deep diving required to see the bottom of the ocean here.
