Picture this: you’ve got the girl (or guy) of your dreams, you’ve got the perfect ring, and you’ve got your speech perfectly memorised, but you have yet to choose the spot to take a knee.  

Fear not! Thanks to the natural beauty of our islands, you don’t need to look far to find the perfect spot to pop the question. 

Here are some of our favourite proposal spots around the Maltese islands: 

  1. The Upper Barrakka Gardens 

This spot perfectly encapsulates all that Valletta has to offer: gorgeous views of the Grand Harbour and the Three Cities, a fountain, and beautiful greenery – all with the perfect traditional backdrop. Go the extra mile and time your proposal perfectly with the shooting of the cannons down below! 

  1. Anywhere in Mdina

Mdina’s another spot chock-full of remnants of Malta’s rich history. Let the Medieval town’s silent streets set the perfect backdrop to your proposal, with its high walls and cobblestone streets isolating you from the rest of the world.   

  1. The Blue Lagoon  

Unfortunately, this one’s pretty seasonal. The Blue Lagoon, with its crystal-clear waters, is the perfect spot for a winter proposal as chances are it’ll be way too packed during the summer months. All that stands between you and the backdrop of your dreams is a quick boat trip to a secluded part of the beach.  

  1. San Anton Gardens 

Could this classic spot be part of your love story? This gorgeous place, abundant in greenery and flaunting the odd peacock, has hosted many a production, so it’s sure to be a picture-perfect spot for your special day! 

  1. Dwejra, Gozo

Although Dwejra’s Azure Window is no more, this spot still holds much of its beauty. If your significant other happens to be a big Game of Thrones fan, this spot is bound to win you some brownie points. 

  1. Dingli Cliffs  

Idyllic views, silence, and colourful flora. Need we say more? The cliff’s edge is the perfect spot for any thrill-seeker looking to seal the deal.   

  1. Golden Bay  

This beach is highly popular with bathers – and with good reason. Head to this spot for a quaint sunset picnic, and you can rest assured that you’ll have the proposal of your dreams. 

We cannot forget about the beauty our sister island has to offer, so here are some of our top Gozitan picks:  

  1. Tal- Mixta Cave

This spot’s sure to make the ‘I do’ echo all the way down to Ramla Bay. Tal-Mixta Cave also comes with spectacular sunset views and a secluded spot only accessible on foot.   

  1. Lunzjata Valley 

This stunning valley is rich in both fauna and historyThanks to the farmers who frequent the area, Lunzjata Valley’s rife with greenery, crops, and even the odd cow! Its gorgeous entrance and hidden niches are sure to whisk you off to a different world. 

  1. Wied l-Ghasri

This is the spot where two cliff edges meet. Symbolic, to say the least! The tiny secluded sandy beach is the perfect ending to a lovely nature walk, the ideal start to your forever.   

 The good news? Whether you choose sunset or sunrise, these places look good in any lighting, so just take your pick and seal the deal.
