“I’m trying to get to Comino.” “You can get there from Gozo.” “I don’t have a ticket. I need a ticket.” “It’s ok. Just go, the gate is closing. Go.” I was still half asleep from the hour long morning bus ride so I just followed the crowd. I followed the crowd off the bus. I followed the crowd into the terminal. I followed the crowd onto the ferry. I followed the crowd to Gozo. And that’s how I found myself accidentally island hopping in Malta.
Malta is a perfect destination for solo female travelers looking for a mix of history, culture and stunning beaches. From the ancient temples of Mnajdra and Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, to the charming towns of Mdina and Valletta, to the crystal-clear waters and sandy beaches, Malta offers a diverse array of experiences for the solo female traveler to explore and enjoy.
