First timer info

Hi all

We are a family of 4 (2 daughters aged 16 & 10) and are thinking of Malta for next year. Can anyone offer any advice about which resorts would be suitable for us? Nightlife not that important as long as there are a few places to sit and eat/chill out. A nice beach would be good but somewhere with a bit of character/history and not too 'remote'? Any advice would be gratefully received.

Thanks all

I think Mellieha fits most of the bill providing the 16 y/o doesn't get too bored.

Failing that Qawra is busy enough but lacks some of the character you are looking for as it is a tourist area.
