A gem in the middle of the Mediterranean, Malta offers the ideal location for students to stimulate their passion for sports. Its compact size makes travelling around easy and excellent year-round weather makes it a destination for all seasons. Groups predominantly stay in St Julians Bay, which offers speedy access to training locations, the airport and evening activities in the area. There are a range of excursions throughout the island, such as Valletta and the Blue Grotto, that students will love.
It may be a small island but Malta has a large appetite for sports, in particular Netball, as it is one of the only other European countries to have a Netball Association, so local fixtures can be easily arranged. Famous for its warm welcome, this beautiful island is the perfect setting for a successful sports trip. Popular sports destinations in Malta:
