About MaltaUncovered.com

About MaltaUncovered - EdwardHi there, thanks for visiting MaltaUncovered.com! I’m a tourist-turned-expat who’s been living in Malta for over a decade. I’m a born and raised Dutchman with Maltese roots, who always had a close connection with Malta.

I’ve loved Malta ever since I was a kid and still do. No country is without flaw, but the uniqueness of Malta always fascinated me and outweighed the negatives. Which is what brought me to create MaltaUncovered.com.

Why MaltaUncovered.com?

My mission is to reach curious travellers around the world and introduce them to Malta. Not the commercial version of Malta, but the side of Malta that isn’t talked about much online: A unique blend of culture, history and a warm hospitality that’s hard to find elsewhere.

I started out with a small site (GuideToMalta.net) where I’d collect info and recommendations I’d give friends and relatives who were looking to pay Malta a visit. It turned out my collection of tidbits actually attracted a bit of an audience and MaltaUncovered.com was born.

How is MaltaUncovered.com different?

With some quick Googling, you’ll find that a lot of info out there:

  1. Is standard, factual blurb that doesn’t do Malta justice
  2. Provides little or no personal experience, let alone honest reviews of what’s worthwhile doing/seeing and what isn’t
  3. Focuses on “sun and sea” when there’s so much more to Malta that’s worth experiencing for yourself.

I was determined that I could do better, so here it is: My travel and holidays guide to Malta.

What this site is all about:

  • Answering travellers’ questions
  • Personal recommendations
  • Insider knowledge – “Stuff only the locals know”

I hope my site proves to be useful to you in getting the most out of your travels to Malta!

  1. Very informative site, and with exactly the kind of personal touch and inside information I was looking for while planning my trip to Malta next year. Thank you very much, and keep up the good work!

    • Thanks for leaving a note Sid, much appreciated! 🙂

  2. How you can write that you opinion is not for sale yet you ask if people wanna advertise?

    • Hi Anders, thank you for leaving a message. As mentioned above, I don’t earn a living off the site, and money isn’t my main motivator. If advertisers are willing to display a few adverts to support the cost of hosting, development and maintaining a heavily-trafficked site I run in my spare time, I welcome that. But just because advertisers may pay me to display ads, I don’t review companies favourably against payment. Those are very different things and I maintain that division out of principle. My advice is mine only and my opinion is indeed not for sale. I help thousands of travellers every year because I want to share what I love about Malta and get positive feedback of good experiences had following my advice almost daily. But of course, everyone is free to choose whether or not they trust and make use of the information I provide. I have no reason to be disingenuous because, again, I don’t make a living off my site and that isn’t the intention in any case.

  3. Well our time in beautiful Malta has come to an end, and we have packed so much into 16 amazing days thanks to the information and tips we got from Edward. There is so much history, so many stories and so many places of beauty. While these proud maltese people might be a little crazy on the roads, they are so very proud of their heritage and once you break through their hard faced exterior they are the most lovely people. Thanks Edward for helping us create this amazing trip of a lifetime. We love, love, love Malta.

    • Happy to hear you had such a great trip Jenny – that’s the kind of feedback that makes running this site worthwhile! 🙂

  4. I just signed up for your newsletter. What a refreshing approach to informing consumers about the country ! Planning a 4 night stay in Valletta in April, I was particularly heartened that you’ve listed my choice of hotels as amongst the most recommended ! A sigh of relief! I have many questions but we both have time for responses. Thanks Ed. I look forward to reading more. Oh, being somewhat old school, I wish your guide were printed as well as electronic !

    • Thank you for the feedback Andrew! A printed version of the guide should be available later this year but that’s unlikely to be by April I’m afraid. I hope you enjoy your stay – Location- and timing-wise I’m pretty confident you’ve set yourself up for a trip to remember fondly! 🙂
