This is only helped by the fact that most airlines including quite a few budget options have regular flights directly there.

Malta and Gozo both form part of an archipelago nation in the Mediterranean sea. Malta is the largest island, the seat of government and is home to the bulk of the total population of around 450,000. Gozo is much smaller in every sense, being around 67 square kilometres and home to around 32,000 people. The only other inhabited island in the archipelago is Comino.
Even though Malta does not have forests, rivers or lakes, the island is home to some of the most spectacular natural wonders around the world. With so many natural caves, cliffs and rock formations you can hardly ever run out of things to do.
Comino is a very small island that lies midway between Malta and Gozo. Sparsely inhabited by just a few farmers, it is very peaceful and is a favourite day trip destination from Malta for both tourists and the Maltese. The tourists and locals come to Comino to camp out or spend their day hiking across the island and more specifically visit the blue lagoon.
To the northeast of Malta resides Sliema. It is beside the town of St. Julians. The town used to be where Malta's upper-class and aristocracy resided. Yet, today the area is most popular for its shopping centers, bars, restaurants, and hotels. The town got its name from a chapel, which was built in dedication to Stella Maris in 1855. The chapel was a valuable landmark to the area's fishermen. More specifically, the name is derived from the opening words of the Hail Mary, "Sliem Ghalik Marija" in Maltese. The definition of Sliem in Maltese is "Peace," or "Serenity". The town is rather large for a residential area, and its population is approximately 15,000. Many expatriates also populate the town temporarily.
