Belleair Holidays is offering deals to Malta with up to £175 per person discounts for agents to highlight to customers looking to take in the festivities this summer.
As examples, The Malta Music Week runs from June 20-25, with the free Isle of MTV music festival staged on June 25. The event is the pinnacle of a week-long festival of live music which covers the full spectrum of today’s music scene.
Meanwhile, feast days are celebratory events and some are national holidays such as the feast of Santa Marija in mid-August. Others, such as the harvest festival of Mnarja at the end of June, are steeped in folklore. However, the most important events to all villages are their individual festas, honoring their parish patron saint. The village festas start at the end of May and occur nearly every weekend up to September. Banners, papier maché statues and garlands decorate the main streets and homes of the village where the feast is taking place. A typical Maltese ‘festa' lasts three days with food stands lining the streets serving the crowds of merry-makers. The evenings often end with fireworks displays.
As examples of prices, a seven-night breakfast stay at the three-star Hotel Bayview costs from £391 per person, offering a saving of £150 per person . It includes flights from Birmingham, transfers and complimentary entrance to a selected Malta attraction, and is based on a June 24 departure.
A special one-off departure on July 15 from Exeter offers a saving of £175 per person, with prices leading in at £312 at the three-star Primera Hotel. It includes flights, seven nights' breakfast accommodation in a balcony room, transfers and complimentary entrance to a selected attraction.
