My fiance and I are thinking we would like to visit Malta on our honeymoon this upcoming fall 2008. It appears to be a country full of history and sites to see. We would plan a ~12 day honeymoon (traveling from US) and would most likely spend the majority of that time in Malta with a possible side trip to either Italy or Greece. While we do greatly enjoy siteseeing and would love to roam the islands of Malta, we would also like to relax at some beaches on our honeymoon. Some of the travel guides we have viewed talk about very rocky beaches in Malta which do not sound comfortable for sunbathing...yet others tell us there are many sandy beaches- which should we believe? Are the sandy beaches located in a specific part of the island.
