This could be your next unforgettable destination
This compact island nation consistently comes top of the Europe Rainbow Index as Europe’s safest and most inclusive country for LGBTQ+ travellers.
It’s also one of the best diving destinations on the continent, with guided dives and snorkelling trips for all ages and abilities. If you don’t fancy getting wet, kids will love Malta’s National Aquarium, home to over 175 species, a walkthrough glass tunnel where you can spot sharks, and animal encounters.
Smaller kids will love the Playmobil fun park, while the Popeye Village makes an interesting excursion. Built as a film set for a musical production in 1980, it has since become a family favourite entertainment park with rides, shows and more.
Valletta, Malta’s capital city, is a UNESCO World Heritage City and a former European Capital of Culture (2018), and melds ancient and contemporary culture to excellent effect. Don’t miss it!

Destination Rainbow is an independent travel agency specialising in LGBTQ+ family holidays. But we have many strings to our multi-coloured bow. We also love planning romantic escapes for couples and are always happy to hear from friends and allies who need to escape to a sun-kissed beach or finally fulfil that long-awaited adventure.
Our travel agency is run by Elle, an LGBTQ+ mum of 3 who knows how important it is to get a family holiday right. We offer expert advice on how safe a country is and recommend hotels that welcome LGBTQ+ families with open arms. By researching the best resorts, chatting to those who work there and hearing our own guests’ experiences, we are building a collection of favourite retreats where you can be your true selves. They are competitively priced, too.
Our ethos is about personal service, trust and building a lasting relationship, so you know exactly who to call whenever you need a holiday.
