Activities

What's it like?

Our brand new Maltese Adventure Holiday offers one of our most spectacular family adventure programmes yet including activities from coasteering to zip lining across the sea! One day you’ll be abseiling down a crag by the Mediterranean Sea and the next you’ll be enjoying the thrills of Malta’s waterpark. Evenings will be spent relaxing with other like-minded families back at the Guest House or exploring the vibrant coastal entertainment centre just 10 minutes away.

Ideally positioned to maximise Malta’s picturesque activity locations and vibrant culture, our private Acorn Guesthouse (hosted by our Maltese partners), is located in the heart of bustling St Julian’s, Malta’s popular coastal resort. Within just 10 minutes’ walk, you can be on the beach or enjoying a coffee in one of the many cafes in the St George’s Bay area.

This is a family holiday that offers it all. An action-packed activity programme to keep the whole family energised & invigorated, the chance to meet and socialise with other UK families, a day off to relax and unwind on one of the local beaches, plenty to explore locally in the evenings or time for a dip in the on-site swimming pool.

This is a great all round holiday to suit the whole family!

Activities

This exciting activity programme will delight you all with its picturesque settings and thrills to entertain even the most confident adventurer!

Abseiling

This is abseiling at its best. Abseiling down a cliff with glorious see views surrounding you. Our Maltese partners know the best spots in Malta to enjoy abseiling and will help you conquer any fears and achieve this exciting challenge of abseiling down towards the ocean; an experience you will never forget!

Snorkelling

Snorkeling in Malta can be sedate and relaxing drifting along admiring the underwater reefs and sealife, or you can dive down, to get closer to the action! Our experienced Maltese guides will choose a perfect location that suits your experience and the type of activity you are looking for.

It does not matter if you are a complete beginner, we will always find you the perfect level of difficulty to suit you and make sure you finish totally satisfied.

Rock Climbing

Our experienced Maltese guides will take you to the perfect location for family rock climbing, designed to suit beginners and the more confident climber.

With beautiful ocean views surrounding you, it will be well worth the climb to the top!

Zip-lining

Zip lines are great fun! Imagine standing on the edge of a steep cliff edge looking down more than 50m and below you is just rugged rock and the open sea. Secured by a harness and connected to the steel zipline by pulley, you anticipate the exposure and your body is full of adrenaline.

As you step away from rock you are suspended by the zipline as you literally fly across the cliff edge towards the other side.

Zip Lining is a safe activity that generates a lot of excitement and this is known in the area to be the fastest zipline in Malta!

The zipline speed can be controlled by your guide, so this is also suitable for young children of any age who can ride the zipline more slowly but daring teenagers or grown-ups can ride the zipline at full speed.

Kayaking

Where better to enjoy a family kayaking adventure than on the Mediterranean ocean? Our expert Maltese guides will take you all on a beautiful journey that suits the beginner and the more advanced. Enjoy beautiful blue seas and magnificent views as you learn to paddle and enjoy being on the water.

Waterpark

Enjoy a fun-filled family day out to the Splash & Fun waterpark, suited to those feeling wild & adventurous or the more laid back and relaxed. The park offers a variety of slides, pools, side winder, black hole and various places to relax and sunbathe, or even read a book.

Free day to relax or explore

With so many activities to participate in on this action-packed holiday, you will enjoy a day to relax altogether as a family and enjoy the local beaches, bars and cafes that are within easy reach of the Guest House. The ancient town of Valletta is a beautiful place to visit and can be easily reached by local bus.
