Photos from Malta

Malta is an group of islands in the central Mediterranean Sea, which were formed from the high points of a land bridge between Sicily and North Africa during the last Ice Age. The most commonly accepted root of the name Malta is the Greek word μελι (meli), 'honey'. Another etymology is the Phoenician word Maleth meaning 'a haven' in reference to Malta's many bays and coves.
