Malta is the fifth smallest country in Europe. It is an island state in the Mediterranean. You can still speak of different regions. Firstly, the busy and fully-developed north coast of the main island of Malta, where practically all tourists stay. Second, the middle and south of the main island that is less populated. The coast here consists mainly of high cliffs. The third region consists of the two other inhabited islands: Gozo and Comino. These islands are less affected by mass tourism and have been able to preserve better their traditional character.
