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.

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.
Medical Tourism
Throughout history, Malta has often been referred to as "The Hospital of the Mediterranean", due to the prominent role the island played over the centuries as a prime location for medical treatment and the care of the sick. Today, Malta is building on this reputation and is an excellent destination where one can receive medical and surgical treatment.
Combining a high level of medical expertise and an ideal climate, the Maltese Islands are also the perfect place to improve recuperation.
With a growing list of services and treatments, ranging from the simplest to the most complex and a variety of private clinics and hospitals to choose from, Malta offers everything you're looking for and more.
Why Malta?
There are many places around the world where one can go to recieve medical treatment and related services. So why choose Malta? Well, for a number of reasons....
The islands boast a very high standard of specialists who have studied, trained and qualified in the UK and the USA.
As Malta is part of the European Union, medical standards meet and exceed European requirements, with Malta ranking highly amongst nations in terms of health levels and overall health system performance (World Health Report 2007).
The list of services and treatments offered in Malta is vast and varied, ranging from the simplest to the most complex.
The comfort levels at the private clinics and hospitals are also very high, providing five star ambiences, multilingual doctors and nurses and cheerful staff.
Most clinics are located in city centres, so everything needed is practically within walking distance.
There are no waiting lists and prices are very competitive.
Due to Malta's central location, there are excellent flight connections from all over Europe and beyond.
The small size of the territory means that distances from the airport to the healthcare centres, the hotels and everywhere else are short and getting around is easy.
For all of these reasons, Malta is fast becoming one of the top choices for those seeking medical treatments abroad.
