Where are the best places to photograph in Malta? In this post, I will break down the best spots to take photos in Malta and Gozo.

Malta is an island in the central Mediterranean sea. It is full of history and surrounded by the most beautiful waters in the world.  Having spent some time there, I have searched every corner of this beautiful place and have found the most picturesque spots.

Walking through the streets of Malta is like stepping back in time. The architecture is stunning, and walking through the cobblestone streets just puts a grin on your face.

From the city to the outskirts I always felt at peace. A place with so much beauty just does that to you.

The gear I used for all my photos: Nikon D800 with a Nikon 14-24mm and a Nikon 24-85mm.  A MeFOTO tripod and a wide angle is a must. I edit all my images with my Lightroom Presets download them and give them a try.
