We were blown away by this fantastic collection. We caught the 202 bus from St. Julians to Rabat then the X3 bus to Bugibba. It is a short walk to the museum which is sign postedfrom the bus station. There are wonderful cars below ground and details about them .Also there are old gaming machines and pinball. Some cars are in the middle if renovation. Mini’s , Morris Minors , Audi’s, Ford Cortina’s vintage BMW’s model cars of many types. Well worth a visit

Historical part of Malta's history: take a few pics, have a stroll around, maybe have a drink. Narrow streets, interesting ancient buildings and churches. Get the bus here from Valletta, don't do the Hop on Hop Off or it'll take you hours to get back. Quieter than Valletta.

Completed in 1860, this church has the third-largest unsupported dome in Europe.
No visit to Malta is complete without visiting the Rotunda of Mosta. Unusual in that the Church is circular, with a massive domed ceiling - the third largest in the world. Even more spectacular in that the Dome was built without the aid of scaffolding! Don't forget to visit the annex at the back of the church to see a replica of the Bomb which fell through the Dome in 1942 in the middle of a service but which fortunately failed to explode.

Join local actors on an unforgettable journey through a myriad of iconic filming locations featured in Game of Thrones, Gladiator, Troy, Captain Phillips, WWZ, Alexander, The Count of Monte Cristo, Munich, The Da Vinci Code and many other great movies. This exclusive full-day tour kicks off at 9am every Sunday from in front of the Grand Hotel Excelsior on the Valletta Ring Road, Malta.
Malcolm was a great guide and although my wife isn’t a GOT fan at the end of the tour she said this was probably the best tour she had ever been on. Malcolm has clearly put lots of effort in in developing the tour and as well as the GOT interest there was other topics covered by the tour and can’t impress on how good and genuine Malcolm is so would highly recommend this tour to anybody visiting Malta, the restaurant stopped at during the tour served great food and offers great views of Malta

Beautiful Palazzo. We visited on St Valentines day for a specially organised dinner. It was beautiful and tasted. A little cold at the beginning as they started with the reception outside. We also visit their restaurant for sunday lunch. I will be back.

The museum is a living and working museum, which is a prime attraction for all family members of all ages. It exhibits a collection of around 18 aircraft, aircraft engines, airfield equipment, uniforms, model aircraft and much more. Among its prime exhibits are a World War II Hawker Hurricane which was recovered from the seabed in 1995 and completely restored to working condition.
Nicely laid out aviation museum with iconic aircraft (Spitfire, Hurricane). It tells the story of the Defence of Malta very well and has some interesting exhibits of uniforms, medals etc. There are also a few postwar military aircraft which you would not see in the UK
It is not too far a walk to Mdina from the museum. The walk to the town took us past a military cemetery in which many of those interred are victims of an aircraft crash in 1956 in which 50 people, mostly RAF servicemen were killed. Worth dropping by if you decide to take the walk up to the town

Make your Reservations today with Flyboard Malta. Our office is located in Birkirkara, but we operate in Spinola Bay, St. Julian's Bay. We do not have a fixed location but we meet there by booking.
I was worried I wouldn’t be able to get the hang of this until the very end of my session, but Simon was incredibly helpful with his instructions ( you have a speaker in your helmet). He was also very calm and patient which helped tremendous. I was able to get up my first try and the entire thing was so much fun. Joanne was great about taking pictures and even included our two year old watching from the dock in a few photos. After my husband and I were both finished Simon treated us to a mini show of tricks. Incredible!!

Casa Bernard is a must-go if you're anywhere near Rabat and Mdina. The house oozes with history and charm. The guided tour by the owners is informative, interesting and, if a house tour could ever be described this way: relaxing. (Perhaps it's the owners calming voice and pleasant demeanor.) Everything is interesting in this beautiful, old house: the architecture, the furniture, the pieces of art, the stories. Go!

Welcome to Malta & Aquatica 5 Star Dive Centre, where dedication and professionalism come together to form a friendly environment that you can trust.Come join the adventure of diving in Malta and let us be your trusted guides to a memorable diving experience that you will never forget.Our service provides all divers with enjoyable, flexible and highly customised packages. With a fresh and friendly attitude we aim to ensure everyone enjoys a great day.OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND
I've dived with Aquatica a few times now and every time I could not be happier: the staff are incredibly friendly, accommodating, professional and safety-conscious. They do everything in their power to make sure you have a great time and that your experience diving in Malta remains a wonderfully memorable souvenir for you for years to come.
I wanted to share my experience of my most recent trip to highlight just how awesome Daryl and his team are.
I returned to Malta after almost exactly 2 years since my last dive (during which time I was unfortunately not able to dive at all). Daryl and his team ensured that I had a warm welcome back underwater :)
Here are some key points:
1) With some advance planning and email correspondence, Daryl helped me to arrange to have a diving medical with a local doctor on the day of my arrival, so I wouldn't have to spend time doing the medical on my first day of diving and to make sure that all the paperwork etc is complete. I planned to drop by the diving centre straight from the airport so that I can also leave my diving gear at the centre, which was very convenient!
2) After not diving for an extended period of time I thought I might need a refresher. Daryl ensured that I was very well taken care of, by assigning an instructor (ciao Alex!) all to myself :) Once I got in the water, all my worries melted away and I had an amazing time.
3) Daryl and the team ensured that I (and the other divers diving) got to visit different dive sites during our stay. We got to express our preferences and as long as weather conditions allowed, we were able to go where we wanted to go. For me this is a particular bonus, as I simply love some of the dive sites (e.g. the Rozi, pictured) and am keen to explore them again and again. Having the team be so flexible and accommodating truly makes a difference!
4) I booked transfers as I was staying on another part of the island and the team were excellent in arranging pick ups (always punctual!) and drop-offs, allowing flexibility for when I wanted to be dropped off straight from the dive site without having to return to the diving centre or if I wanted to hang out at the diving centre for a bit longer to have lunch or clean my gear etc.
5) Daryl and his team paid great attention to detail to ensure that I had everything I needed and that I was comfortable. Coming back here is like visiting family :)
6) The team are great for offering tips and advice, not just for diving, but also for things to do on the island, such as new restaurants to check out (thanks Alex for the tips!).
7) The new Aquatica cafe is great and the excellent customer service culture is present here as well. From making your coffee just the way you like it to whipping up a very tasty salad with grilled vegetables and prosciutto outside of normal lunch hours but just to please a post-diving hungry customer, you know you can count on them :)
I will definitely come again and hope that divers will consider Aquatica as their dive guides of choice in Malta!
