The Maltese Islands fall within the following co-ordinates: Northern Latitude 35 Degrees 50 Minutes - Eastern Longitude 14 Degrees 35 Minutes

Position: The distance between Malta and the nearest point in Sicily is 93km. The distance from the nearest point on the North African mainland (Tunisia) is 288km. Gibraltar is 1,826km to the west and Alexandria is 1,510km to the east.

Getting there: Malta has always been a prized treasure for many empires due to it`s strategically location between two continents. Today Malta still boasts of this advantage, even with new improvements in transport technology (by air and by sea).
