LGBTIQ Holidays in Malta

Malta is the ideal destination for LGBTIQ travellers looking for a relaxing holiday environment that respects the equality of all its visitors.  The vibrant nightlife, historic wonders and blue seas of Malta are complemented by its progressive stance towards LGBT rights.

In fact, the island nation leads Europe in its acceptance and appreciation of the gay community and gay rights, earning a historic first place in the International Lesbian-Gay Association’s Europe Rainbow Map in both 2016 and 2017 for LGBTIQ rights. This, together with recent changes in legislation introduced by the government to legalise gay marriage, has contributed to making Malta increasingly popular with gay holiday goers.

Guests from abroad will find that the vast majority of the Maltese people are gracious and welcoming hosts, eager to help them discover Malta, Gozo and Comino and make their stay enjoyable and hassle-free. The gay community will be glad to share tips on the best restaurants, cafes, pubs, nightclubs and boutiques to visit, as well as gay-friendly hotels and other accommodation to stay in. They will also know about upcoming events, social gatherings and parties. 

For LGBTIQ travellers who are aware that the laws and acceptance of LGBTIQ rights vary across the globe, our holiday packages to Malta prove just the ticket.
