The Malta hop-on hop-off Guide

Explore the beautiful island of Malta in a day or two... 

 

The traditional "Luzzu" boat is one of Malta's best known icons, and many of it can be seen on the Malta hop-on hop-off Guide

Just 58 miles south of Sicily, in the azure Mediterranean, lie the unspoilt Maltese Islands. The largest of these tiny gems is Malta. On its western side, the island is hilly, with sheer cliffs dropping into the sea. Towards the east, the land slopes and flattens as it reaches the shoreline, which is dotted with little bays as well as Malta’s main harbour towns, Valletta and Sliema.

 

With more than 7,000 years of history, Malta offers an exciting selection of attractions. As its capital, Valletta, is brimming with historic fortifications and architectural treasures, it’s been granted World Heritage status by UNESCO. The island has its own quirky personality, and exploring here is a pleasure.

 

You can visit prehistoric temples, discover Baroque architecture, enjoy a ride in a rickety old bus, passing colourful scenery. Savour food that is inspired by Italy but has its own special charm and visit British-style pubs – all part of Malta’s multi-cultural history, and its inimitable charm.

 

Nothing prepares one for the magnificence of the fortified city of Mdina, with its art treasures, palaces and mighty cathedrals. Nothing surprises quite like the beauty of the northern countryside that you can visit on the Hop On Hop Off tours of the North of the island. There are two tours to the North – the comprehensive 23-stop tour of Malta on the Blue Route, or the shorter 14-stop Violet Route, which is basically the first part of the Blue Route. On the Green Route, which is the bus tour to the South of Malta, where you can visit some of Malta’s prehistoric temples, including the Tarxien Temples, built around 3,000BC and the traditional fishing village of Marsaxlokk.

 

Of course, the best way to explore Malta is on one of those distinctive red Hop On Hop Off buses, where you have the opportunity to hop on and off the bus to explore at leisure, choosing the destinations you wish to explore in-depth. Whichever routes you choose, you’ll enjoy an insight into this tiny slice of paradise that offers such a variety of attractions and experiences.

Places to see and things to do along the route

(Click HERE for the list of hop-off stops for each one of the routes)

 

 

A) The North Malta Tour (Blue route): From Sliema Ferry – 23 stops (The first 14 stops of this tour form the Violet Route, which is an option for those of you who are short in time and want to focus only on Valetta and its environs)

 

1. The bus departs from Sliema Ferry. Lively Sliema is the island’s main coastal resort, full of hotels, shops, cafes, nightclubs and restaurants. You can stroll or jog along the pretty promenade, which runs for 5km from neighboring St Julian’s, all the way to Gzira and Ta’Xbiex, past the beautiful Independence Garden with its magnificent harbour views.

 

2. The bus passes Manoel Island, a tiny fortified island also called Il-Gzira, after the little nearby town of the same name. It’s joined to the mainland at Gzira by a stone bridge and is currently being converted into an exclusive residential area. In the 17th Century the island was used to quarantine ships arriving from plague-infected ports. On the island is the Baroque Fort Manoel, built by Grand Master Manoel de Vilhena in 1726, a remarkable military building which encircles two tiers of arched barracks which could hold up to 500 men. A beautiful chapel of St Anthony, and a bronze statue of the Grand Master were also located on the island, but they were destroyed in the Second World War. These days, Fort Manoel is the home of the Royal Malta Yacht Club, where luxury sailing boats and yachts are moored.

3. Ta' Xbiex Bus Terminus, near Manoel Island is the next stop along your route. This town used to be a tiny fishing village but now boasts a number of beautiful villas which are used as foreign embassies. It also services part of the Yacht Marina. You can visit the Parish Church dedicated to St John of the Cross here, and take time out to stroll along the seafront with its spectacular views of the walled city of Valletta, nearby. At night, Valletta is lit up, and this creates a magnificent backdrop.

4. Next hop off point is at Valetta Bus Terminus, in the walled city of Valletta, Malta’s capital city. Built by the Knights of the Order of St John in 1568, the town is a joy to explore, with its historical palaces, museums, churches, gardens, restaurants, shops and cafes. Valletta was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1960, and its ancient buildings date all the way back to the 16th Century, making it a museum in itself. It’s named after Jean Parisot de la Valette, who defended the island from Ottoman invasion in 1565. The island has two natural harbours – Marsamxett, which overlooks Manoel Island and Sliema, and the Grand Harbour, that looks out onto the three cities of Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua.

 

As Valletta is home to so many of the island’s historic attractions’ it’s worth exploring in-depth, but it depends on how much time you have. Try to see some of the most important sights, including St. Johns Co-Cathedral and Museum, built in 1577. The cathedral boasts frescoes by Mattia Preti and in the museum you’ll find two paintings by Caravaggio. There’s also the Grandmaster's Palace & Armoury, built in the late 16th Century, once the seat of the Knights of St John. Today it’s home to the House of Representatives in Malta and the office of the island’s President. In the Armoury you’ll find a fine collection of weapons. There’s also Church of Saint Paul's Shipwreck – this beautiful baroque 17th Century church, one of the island’s most important, contains a wooden statue of the Saint carved in 1657 by Melchiorre Cafà and St Paul’s right wristbone.  Other museums worth exploring in Valletta include the National Museum of Fine Arts, and the National Archaeological Museum, with items dating back to Malta’s Neolithic period.

 

Valetta is also on the hop-on hop-off Malta bus tour

5. Hop off the bus to explore the magnificent 16th Century Valetta Palace, known as Casa Rocca Piccola, still home to a Maltese noble family. You can explore some of the palace’s 50 rooms – a real treat.

 

6. Valetta's National War Museum is the next hop-off stop along your route. Housed in the old Drill Hall of Lower Fort St Elmo, the museum’s displays cover both World Wars. Here you can see the Gloster See Gladiator Faith, the only surviving biplane of the three that defended the island, a Willys Jeep called "Husky" used by General Eisenhower before the invasion of Siciliy in 1943, and the George Cross, which was awarded to the people of Malta for their heroism in 1942.

 

7. Hop off at the next stop and visit Fort St Elmo, a 16th Century fort located at the tip of the Valletta Peninsula. Today it’s home to the Malta Police Academy as well as part of the War Museum. Built by the Knights of the Order of St John in 1552 to guard the entrances to the harbours on either side of the peninsula, the fort stages historical reenactments of military encounters between French and Maltese troops on Sunday mornings, which are well worth viewing.

 

8. Next stop is at Valetta Waterfront, overlooking the Grand Harbour. This is where visiting cruise ships dock, and there are many shops, bars and restaurants here, which are very popular in the evenings.

 

9. Explore San Anton Gardens from the next stop along the route. These beautiful grounds were originally laid out in the early 17th Century by Grandmaster Antoine de Paule and they are magnificent. Take a stroll through the walled gardens, and admire the ancient trees, including groves of citrus and avocadoes, old stone urns, ponds and formal flowerbeds – even an aviary. Look out for the Eagle Fountain just inside the main gate, which was built in 1620. Also here is the San Anton Palace, where the Grandmaster lived. Today it’s the official residence of Malta’s president.

 

Mdina, Malta's ancient capital city, has so much to offer to visitors. Make sure you spend some time there, when you take the Malta hop-on hop-off bus tour

10. Your next hop off point is at Mdina Gate, gate to Malta’s ancient capital that dates back to 1,500BC. Also known by its medieval name, Citta Nobile, or Noble City, the ancient walled city of Mdina is an historic treasure trove that has changed little in 1,000 years. Wander along its narrow streets and in the main square you’ll find St Paul’s Cathedral & Museum, which boasts a huge fresco of the shipwreck of St Paul as well as some beautiful paintings, and an ornate marble floor. Explore Vilhena Palace, now home to the National Museum of Natural History, visit Mdina Dungeon, a series of underground passageways, chambers and cells and see the amazing tableaux of The Knights of Malta, an audio-visual show that explains the founding of the Order of St John.

 

11. Next hop off point is at Rabat, a town settlement just outside Mdina’s 3,000-year-old town walls. Once part of the Roman city of Melita, Rabat is now a commercial centre, full of fascinating archeological and historic sights, including the famous Roman Villa, or Domus Romana, a museum containing the remnants of a Roman townhouse that was built in the 1st Century BC. You’ll also find some impressive mosaics here that are amongst the oldest in the Western Mediterranean – they date back to the first quarter of the 1st Century.

 

On the outskirts of Rabat are the Catacombs of St Agatha, near Mdina’s Greek Gate. The 3rd Century chapel also located here is decorated with some lovely frescoes painted between the 12th and 16th Centuries, and in the catacomb there are a number of stone graves. You can also visit St Paul’s Catacombs, a maze of interconnected narrow pathways that take you around some ancient tombs. And then there’s St Paul’s Grotto, a cave underneath the Church of St Paul, built in the 16th Century. The cave is apparently where the saint took shelter in 59AD. The cave walls are believed to have miraculous healing powers.

 

Mosta Dome (Rotunda) is one of the highlights along the Malta hop-on hop-off bus tour, and the last stop along the Violet Route

The famous domed church in Mosta

12. Next stop is at Malta Aviation Museum, home to a number of fascinating displays, including parts of engines, airframes and instruments, all of which are in the process of being restored. You will be able to watch local residents working on these aircrafts and other exhibits. Look out for a Spitfire Mk IX and a Hawker Hurricane IIa that was salvaged in 1995 after lying at the bottom of the sea for 54 years. Other vintage flying machines include the Flying Flea, a De Havilland Vampire Tii, a Fit G9IR and a battered old Douglas Dakota DC.

 

13. The next stop along the route is at the Ta Qali Crafts Village, located in a former Aerodrome, where you can purchase some local handicrafts.

 

14. Mosta Church is the next hop off point along the route, and also the last stop on the Violet Route. Mosta is a busy market town in the heart of Malta, and this magnificent domed Church is located in the heart of the town. Called the Mosta Rotunda, it’s the third largest unsupported church dome in Europe. During the Second World War, the church was hit by a 200kg bomb that pierced the dome but did not explode – you will be able to see a replica of this Luftwaffe bomb in the sacristy. Built between 1833 and 1871, the church was designed by Giorgio Grognet, who used the Roman Pantheon as his inspiration. While in Mosta you can also visit the World War II bomb shelters and the Chapel of Our Lady of Hope.

 

15. Continue with the Blue Route to its next stop at Mġarr, a typical Maltese rural village surrounded by rich farmland. You can hop off here and enjoy some spectacular walks in the countryside, but the real draw here are the two megalithic temples of Ta’Hagrat and Skorba, which are among Malta’s oldest prehistoric sites and have long been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  The village’s parish church is also worth visiting; dedicated to St Mary, it was built in 1912.

 

16. Hop off the bus and visit one of Malta’s most beautiful (and only…) sandy beaches at Golden Bay. On the beach are a number of beach clubs and a large hotel. Right next to it you’ll find Ghajn Tuffieha, an unspoilt, secluded beach also worth exploring.

 

 

St Paul's Bay have lovely swimming conditions and beautiful seaside cafes.  Visit it on the Malta hop-on hop-off bus tour

 

St Paul's Bay, Malta

17. St Paul's Bay is the next hop off point along the Blue Route. One of three adjoining fishing villages around a bay in the north of the island, St Paul’s boasts the island’s oldest standing watchtower, built at the beginning of the 17th Century. Also here is the Parish of Our Lady of Sorrows. Today the village has become a popular summer holiday resort.

 

18. Stop off at Buġibba Terminus to explore Buġibba, the second of the three adjoining seaside resort towns, located right next to St Paul’s Bay.  Swimming and snorkeling off the rocks is very popular here. Of the three adjoining villages, this is the largest resort, with excellent views of St Paul’s Bay and its islets. Here, the nightlife is lively, and there’s also a bingo hall, cinema and casino. Nearby is the third resort, Qwara, which also boasts a crowded promenade.

 

19. If you’re in the mood for some fun and adventure, hop off at the next stop, at the Mediterraneo Marine Park / Splash & Fun.  Splash & Fun Park offers various forms of entertainment, including a swimming pool, and another pool equipped with chutes and slides called Children’s Splash Land. There’s also a children’s dinosaur park, and the highlight of a visit here is the High-Tide Wave Pool, 60m long and 25m wide, the largest of its kind in Europe. Running alongside the Wave Pool is a deck area for adults to sunbathe and watch all the activities. For the less adventurous there’s Lazy River, where you can sit on a large rubber tube and float past cascading waterfalls.

 

Right next door is Mediterraneo Marine Park, where you can view a variety of marine life and other species in their natural habitat, including dolphins, sea lions, cockatoos, snakes, tortoises, turtles, lizards and insects. For extra entertainment, a number of shows are held here, including a Dolphin Show, the Sea lion Show, where sea lions and seals jump and pirouette to music, and the Tropical Bird Show. You can also swim with dolphins here.

 

 

Evening at Spinola Bay

20. You can hop off to explore spectacular St George's Bay, a narrow bay full of colourful boats belonging to a cosmopolitan resort with a small golden sand beach. Although there are only a few hotels, bars and restaurants here, there is the Bay Street Shopping Centre, a number of cinema complexes including an IMAX theatre and a bowling alley. The seafront is very pretty, and the resort is popular with holidaymakers.

 

21. Next hop off point is Spinola Bay, which is part of the resort town of St Julian’s. Lots of excellent restaurants, bars and cafes line the hill on the way to St Julian’s, and during the summer this area is lively after dark.  Spinola Bay itself is more genteel than vibrant St Julian’s, and its lovely outdoor restaurants and fashionable bars offer a pleasant respite from the noise higher up the hillside in the evenings. Spinola Bay is also busier during the day than the surrounding areas.

 

To the right of Spinola Bay is a quayside originally used by working fishermen. These days it’s great to walk here at the water’s edge, which boasts some excellent examples of traditional Maltese houses. Halfway along the quayside you’ll find a bronze statue of a traditional Maltese fisherman tending his nets. Next to him is a small cat waiting for some fish. Often you’ll find here colourful, beautifully crafted local fishing boats, that are known as Luzzu.

 

22. Balluta Bay is your next port of call. This small bay is located along the rocky shoreline between St Julian’s and Sliema, and on its shores you’ll find a number of cafes, kiosks and restaurants lining the pretty promenade. The area is very popular for those who enjoy watersports, swimming and sunbathing, and it offers excellent snorkeling. There are lots of restaurants, snack bars and kiosks here, too.

 

Typical Maltese houses are famous for their narrow wood balconies

 

 23. The final stop along the Blue Route is at Il Fortizza, in Sliema. This is the Old Sliema Point Battery, a coastal defence called Il Fortizza, or Tower Road, by the locals. It was built in 1872 by the British and contained two guns, which were removed in 1903, when the battery was transformed into a location for a searchlight that was used to illuminate approaching enemy ships. The Battery’s Gothic-style doors and vaulting still remain, and you can also see the observation tower, added in 1905. The old parade ground now has a roof and houses a restaurant.

 

B) The South Malta Tour (Green Route): From Sliema Ferry – 14 stops

 

1. Like the sightseeing buses touring the North of Malta on the Blue and Violet Routes, the bus taking you on the Green Route to the South of the island of Malta also departs from lively Sliema, one of Malta’s main coastal resort, which boasts a number of shops, hotels, nightclubs, cafes and restaurants. The pretty promenade runs for 5km, from neighboring St Julian’s to Gzira and Ta’Xbiex and past the beautiful Independence Garden, all of which are well worth exploring.

 

2. Before you head south, you can also hop off the bus and explore tiny fortified Manoel Island, which is connected by a stone bridge to the mainland at Gzira. You can explore the Baroquestyle Fort Manoel on the island, a remarkable military building designed by Grand Master Manoel de Vilhena in 1726. It encircles two tiers of arched barracks where up to 500 men used to stay. These days, Fort Manoel is home to the Royal Malta Yacht Club, where luxury sailing boats and yachts are moored.

 

3. Next stop along the route is another location in both the Blue and Violet Routes, the walled city of Valetta, capital city of Malta. This historic city, which was built by the Knights of the Order of St John in 1568, is a delight to explore, with its stone-paved alleys, historical palaces, museums, churches, restaurants, shops and cafes. Since 1960, Valletta has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its proliferation of historic buildings that date all the way back to the 16th Century.

 

(Click here to hop to point Nos. 4 & 5 of the Blue / Violet route, where you can get more info on what you can see and do in Valetta)

 

4. Before the bus changes its route, you have a chance to hop off the bus to visit Valetta's Castille / Casa Rocca Piccola (Read more about it in point No. 5 above).

 

The prehistoric Tarxien Temples and nearby "Hypogeum" are among the highlights of the Malta hop-on hop-off bus tour

 

The megalithic temples in Tarxien

5. The bus heads south to the famous Tarxien Temples, four megalithic temples built between 3,600 and 2,500BC. In prehistoric times, these temples were used for rituals such as animal sacrifices and in the Bronze Age they became a cremation cemetery. The site was only discovered in 1914, after being hidden for thousands of years.

 

You can visit all four of these temples, which are connected by a square courtyard. Each is different, but all four are finely crafted with decorative carvings of domestic animals, spiral designs and other patterns (Click here for opening hours and other info). Just 100 metres away you’ll find the Hypogeum, a structure hewn out of the rock that is three storeys high. It was used for burial and also as a place of worship. Its large hall closely resembles the architecture of the temples. Discovered in 1902, the Hypogeum is the only prehistoric underground temple in the world. Along with the Tarxien Temples, the Hypogeum has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.

 

6. Next stop along the route is at The Three Cities, three fortified cities called Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea, all of which are enclosed by an immense line of fortification that was created by the Knights of St John. These three cities are located across the Grand Harbour from Valletta, and you can explore them on foot, as they are well worth discovering (and surprisingly under visited). Enter the Three Gates into Vittoriosa, the most popular of the Three Cities, and the home of the Knights when they arrived in 1530. Visit Fort St Angelo, believed to be the oldest fortification on all of the Maltese Islands, which contains the Chapel of St Anne. Explore the Inquisitor’s Palace, erected in the 1530s as the Knights’ civil law courts – today it houses the Museum of Ethnography. Visit the Church of St Lawrence, Sacre Infermeria, the Hospital of the Order, which is now a Benedictine convent and the Maritime Museum. And stroll around the town square, Piazza Vittoriosa, where you can have lunch before visiting the pretty Harbour.

 

The Three Cities are among Malta's most amazing attractions

 

Fort St Angelo and the "Three Cities"

The largest of the Three Cities is Cospicua, whose main attraction is the 16th Century Parish Church of Immaculate Conception.  Senglea has more to offer, including the Parish Church of our Lady of Victories, which contains a statue of Christ that is believed to have miraculous powers. From the edge of the city in the Safe Haven Gardens you can enjoy spectacular harbour views across to Valetta.

 

7. Hop off at the next stop to visit Żejtun, a southern town. In the centre you’ll find ancient St Gregory’s Church, which has been here since the town was just a village in the 16th Century.

 

8. Marsaxlokk is the next hop off point along the route. This Mediterranean fishing village is postcard-perfect with its colourful traditional boats, called "Luzzus", bustling Sunday fish market, and traditional fish restaurants.

 

9. Your next stop is at Għaxaq, an agricultural village further south which has been in existence since the early 15th Century. The most unique sight here is the sea-shell house, a house that is decorated entirely with sea shells. It’s located in St Mary’s Square, the main square in the village, also home to the Baroque Parish Church. There’s also St Phillip’s Chapel in St Phillip Square and a number of chapels on the edge of the village. Stroll through the village for an insight into agricultural village life – it’s still as charming and uncomplicated as it was centuries ago.

 

Malta's world-known Blue Grotto is in "Wied iż-Żurrieq"

10. Wied iż-Żurrieq, your next hop off point, is an inlet that resembles a miniature fjord, where fishing boats anchor in calm weather. The blue-green colour of the water and the magnificent rocky landscape have made this a popular sight for swimming and sunbathing. From here you can visit Malta's famous Blue Grotto, a cave, or grotto that is about 50 metres long. The best time to visit is when the sun is shining as it lights up the dark interior and turns it a magical blue colour. You are ferried to the Blue Grotto in small boats that take you inside the grotto as well as to various other caves on the opposite cliff side. A visit here will be one of the highlights of your trip.

 

11. Next stop along the route is at Ħaġar Qim and Mnajdra, two of Malta's most famous megalithic-prehistoric temples, located on a rocky plateau on the island’s west coast, overlooking the sea. Ħaġar Qim is made of a series of buildings, including a wide forecourt and a high retaining wall with a passage running through the middle of the buildingMnajdra, which is just 800 m away, is built of soft stone.

(Click on the links for interesting pictorial-articles about Mnajdra and Ħaġar Qim)

 

12. The last stop along the Green Route is at Siġġiewi, a traditional Maltese village with a unique L-shaped church square. The village, which has been in existence since the 14th Century, is most famous for two major attractions, the Għar Lapsi, which is a cave and natural sea pool and the lush Limestone Heritage Park and Gardens, which are a joy to explore.

 

The old yellow buses have long become one of Malta's most recognised symbols.  You can see many of them throughout the island of Malta

 

Yellow buses - A real Maltese "icon"

The village itself is surrounded by rustic farmhouses, all built from large stone slabs. Stroll around and explore this charming place, and look out for the Church of St Nicholas of Bari.

 

And here is something that is well worth knowing about: Taking a hop-on, hop-off bus tour is one the best ways to explore any large city, as it saves you lots of precious holiday time and takes you EXACTLY to those places you really want to visit... (Not to mention the great views you can enjoy from the open top...).
