Sandy beaches vs rocky beaches in Malta. Pros and cons.

25.July 2018

The most fraught and conflicted argument of summer have divided Malta’s islanders for generations. This is the sort of argument you grow up with and might lean to and fro with it as you grow up.

15.November 2017

Rental investments in Malta have been on an upward trend for a number of years. Statistics show a 15% – 20% Year-on-Year growth over the last three consecutive years.
