I am planning to take a 9-day trip to Malta in early September with my friend. I am wondering what would be the most appropriate plan if we want to visit the historical sites, natural beauties as well as swimming and relaxing on its sandy beaches. Where would be the best location for stay in order to be near the beach and also enjoy the nightlife? We would like to have a taste of everything in that lovely island!! Would appreciate if any good hotels with reasonable prices be mentioned.
