can anybody tell me i have 2 young children aged 4 n 6 will they find malta boring as i have heard there is not much to do there for young kids. also what is there to do for young children apart from beach n waterpark, n marine park. cause the waterpark n marine park u can do in one day, if you go there for 2 weeks, then what? i have heard it is quite hilly. n i don't want to spend all the time on beach, with kids, normally we go spain but this year we wanted to try something different, last year we went portugal it was lovely, but we found it more expensive than spain.

I went with elderly parents, so I can't vouch for any amusement parks. However, my nieces and nephews would have found Malta a great place at that age but they like
a) the outdoors
b) boats
c) castles

Malta is only recommendable if you're into culture. Anything else, you'd be better off going elsewhere. The country consists of the islands of Malta, Comino and Gozo and a few rocks. Malta and Comino are pretty much barren, while Gozo is a somewhat greener (and quieter) island. There are only one or two sandy beaches, which are rather crowded during summertime, all the other beaches are rocky. If you're going there, May and June would be the best time of year, because the islands are greener and it is comfortably warm. In mid-summer the temperatures can get rather high. The Maltese are very friendly and the country has nice architecture. English is widely spoken, besides Maltese. If you're going for a cultural holiday, I recommend a 7 to 10 days visit.

Have fun!

If you're going for a cultural holiday, I recommend a 7 to 10 days visit.

I've thought about going to Malta. I love history and culture. Is there really enough to do there (seems like a relatively small place) to spend 7-10 days without getting bored or running out of things to see?

I never really researched it in depth...what is there to see in Malta?

I spent ten days in Malta, including the arrival and departure days. That was just enough to visit EVERY corner of the country and still have a relaxing holiday. I even spent a day or two at the beach. For young children there's almost nothing to do.
