Have the Malta Experience

Despite its small size, Malta's history is pretty epic.

Or check out Neolithic pottery and prehistoric art at the National Museum of Archaeology.

Get Lost in Valletta's Streets

Valletta's streets tell a living history, from churches like St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral and St. John's Co-Cathedral, to military buildings such as Fort St. Elmo and the Lascaris War Rooms.

An assortment of souvenir necklaces

Shopping

If you're looking for postcards, keychains and other trinkets, check out the gift shop of the Malta Experience. For a more eclectic shopping experience, take a stroll down the city's Republic street, where vendors sell artisanal Maltese items like blown glass, filligree jewelry and pottery.

INSIDER TIP

Beat the Heat

Ibiza has plenty of beaches to choose from. Head to Talamanca beach for a relaxing experience, Figueretas for a more resort-style ambiance and Cajal Jondal Beach to catch the fashionable crowd. If you're looking for calm, views and pine trees by the beach, visit Cala Vadella and Cala Salada.

Live It Up

Ibiza's nightlife is legend — but if you want to party in the daytime, you can do that, too. San Antonio is home to some of the biggest, loudest and longest-running clubs around. Go to Eden Ibiza, Cafe del Mar or Es Paradis for a waterfront experience, try Mint or Savannah for low-key vibes, or seek out a boat party for daytime dancing.

A platter of seafood noodle paella in Ibiza, Spain

Local Cuisine

Ibiza has a love affair with food and drink. Everywhere you go, you're sure to find some version of sangria or paella during your Ibiza cruise. But if you want to get more adventurous, try to find fideua (a take on paella but with noodles), sofrit pages (a mix of chicken, lamb and sausage) and flao (the Ibizan version of a cheesecake).

Various shops in Ibiza, Spain with outdoor displays

Shopping

Ibiza is full of bakeries, paper shops and tobacco stores, which close for a little siesta in the morning and then in the afternoon. Cruise to Ibiza and go to Las Dalias and Punta Arabia for hippie-chic stores, Emonk Ibiza for a wide variety of boots and sneakers and Sluiz for interior design items.

INSIDER TIP

Head to small villages to experience the slow-paced lifestyle of Ibiza.

Get Your Beach On

It's no surprise that Palma de Mallorca is home to some of the world's best beaches — what's astonishing is just how clear blue the water is at Cala Llombards, or how the warm, golden sands of Playa El Arenal will make you wish you never had to leave. No wonder so many red and yellow umbrellas dot the sands here.

The Cuevas del Drach in Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Explore a Dragon's Lair

Head to Porto Cristo on the east side of the island, where you'll find the Cuevas del Drach — the dragon caves. While no actual dragons have been spotted here, the stalactites and stalagmites of this ancient underground cave make it easy to imagine. You can even take a violin-serenaded boat ride on the cave's underground lake during your cruise.

A bowl of tombet, a traditional vegetable dish

Local Cuisine

Mallorca is technically part of Spain, but Palma de Mallorca's cuisine is a world unto itself. Savor tombet, a vegetarian stew with sweet potatoes and carrots that's Mallorca's take on ratatouille. Cruise to Palma de Mallorca to sample the eclectic coca mallorquina, a kind of crunchy flatbread pizza with an olive oil-rich crust topped with roasted red peppers.

A straw bag market in Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Shopping

Palma's premier shopping is to be had in the Passeig de Born neighborhood. Shop here for upscale brands like Mulberry and Zara. Then, head to Jaume III and Sant Miquel streets for boutiques specializing in fine local goods: Choose a necklace or earrings made with world-famous Mallorcan pearls, try on a pair of handmaid Menorquina sandals, or marvel at handicrafts like colorful pottery and traditional straw bags.

INSIDER TIP

If you're more interested in ocean time than historic sites, book a boat tour to see the coastline of Mallorca from the sunlit waves.
