Taking time out is what holidays are all about. The Maltese Islands are an ideal destination if you're looking for some exercise or just wish to revive and relax. The warm climate, clear Mediterranean light and fresh sea air alone help increase energy levels.
It is the aim of some forty health and spa outlets to focus on your overall wellbeing. They provide state-of-the-art equipment and highly qualified staff, making it easy to enjoy the best treatments and products.
If you want to raise fitness levels, and enjoy some leisure and culture as well, it’s a great idea to walk or cycle. The autumn through spring season is ideal for enjoying the Islands' stunning scenery and explorative inland.
The Islands offer opportunities for a wide variety of sports – for amateurs and experts alike. Choose from adventure activities like rock climbing and paragliding to a sociable or competitive round of golf. Malta also plays host to teams seeking a professional but comfortable location to train in, especially during the winter months when the climate is perfect for outdoor sports.
Spa and fitness facilities can be found at most of the five star hotels as well as other private outlets. Most wellness centres offer well-equipped gyms and pools, and will arrange tailor-made programmes to suit individual needs. Beauty, body and spa treatments, dedicated fitness training and physiotherapy are widely available. Many hotels offer packages, which include specialist treatments along with unlimited use of the fitness facilities.
