A Romantic Rendezvous in Malta
In this section, we explore the many ways to celebrate your relationship. Enjoy peaceful walks on the beach or discover Malta’s historical sights. Whether it’s a calm morning by the blue waters of St. George’s Bay or an adventure through the old streets of Mdina, Malta offers a Valentine’s Day full of special moments.
St. George’s Bay, a short 3-minute walk from be.Hotel, is a great place for a morning stroll. Since the bay faces east, it’s an ideal spot to watch a beautiful sunrise. The early morning light, the sound of the waves, and the soft sand make for a peaceful walk.
If you’re willing to venture further out, consider a visit to the picturesque Golden Bay. This beach is known for its golden sands and crystal-clear waters, making it a beautiful spot for a sunbathing session. The beach is surrounded by countryside, offering a serene natural setting that feels like a world away from the everyday bustle.
For a quieter, more private beach experience, Għajn Tuffieha Bay is close by. It’s just a short walk from Golden Bay and offers a more intimate atmosphere, thanks to its cliff surroundings. Here, you can enjoy the untouched natural beauty and watch stunning sunsets. It’s a great spot for a quiet picnic in the afternoon.
For those looking for an adventure, the Blue Lagoon on Comino Island is a must-see. Its bright blue waters and white sands are like paradise. Although it can be busy, visiting in February means fewer crowds, allowing you and your partner to enjoy the breathtaking scenery in relative peace. A short boat trip from Malta, the Blue Lagoon is an excellent way to add a sense of adventure to your Valentine’s Day.
Journey Through Time
History buffs should visit Mdina, the Silent City. Its medieval streets and baroque architecture feel like you’re going back in time. Wander through its narrow lanes, past historic buildings and charming cafes, and admire the view of the countryside from the fortifications. Enjoy a coffee or a sweet snack at a café and take in the atmosphere.
A crowd favourite is the Fontanella Tea Garden, known for its spectacular views – but it being a favourite means that it tends to be pretty full. An alternative is Gustav Café, on the roof of Palazzo Falson. It boasts views of the inner courtyard of the Palazzo with the bell towers of St. Paul’s Cathedral or views of the countryside, depending on where you sit.
Valletta, the capital city, is another treasure trove of history and culture. The city’s streets and buildings are themselves works of art, with Baroque architecture and historical monuments. Valletta is home to several museums and art galleries, such as the National Museum of Fine Arts and MUŻA. Walking through the city’s Upper Barrakka Gardens provides great views of the Grand Harbour and is perfect for photos.
Whenever you get hungry, just wander down Strait Street, which is full of picturesque restaurants set up in the tiny alleyway. For a particularly unique experience, Rampila Restaurant serves Maltese cuisine and offers views over the city’s ramparts.
Sunset and Evening Activities
At sunset, consider going on a harbour cruise around the Grand Harbour, as it offers a breathtaking experience. The view of the ancient fortifications and the Mediterranean Sea, bathed in the hues of the setting sun, creates a truly romantic setting. For a super budget-friendly option, you can catch the ferry from Valletta to the Three Cities and back – a return ticket is less than €4.
As the evening arrives, why not enjoy a romantic dinner at Caviar & Bull? Just a ten-minute walk from our hotel, it forms part of the Michelin Guide. It overlooks the bay and specialises in premium-brand caviar, aged AAA Canadian beef, and fresh seafood. Additionally, it’s renowned for its unique and exquisite creations, including the signature molecular spheres.
