8. Sannat, Gozo

A quaint village in the south of Malta’s sister isle, Sannat in Gozo is popular for its high cliffs, ancient cart ruts, temples and dolmens, so there are plenty of areas to experiment with here!

9. Valletta Old Town

The backstreets of the capital city have so much to offer! Simply wander through one narrow street after another with your partner in crime and photographer, and good luck choosing your best shots at the end of it.
