Malta is the most densely populated island in Europe. A tiny spec in the Mediterranean Sea, with more than 300,000 people living on its shores.
Not the obvious choice for someone looking for a quiet camping trip in Europe. Or a traveler looking to get away from it all.
However, this unique island, along with its smaller sister islands of Gozo and Comino, offers some of the most interesting camping spots anywhere in the world.
Almost all of them are in the rural North of the country, away from the bustle of the cities.
Here you will find a rare mix of ancient human history, deserted beaches and rugged terrain to camp on.
There’s also a long-established culture of rock climbing and scuba diving that means you can come to experience these great activities in some of the most picturesque settings anywhere in the world.
Excited by Camping in the rural North of Malta? You should be.
