Malta Geography

Surrounded by the waters of the Mediterranean Sea, Malta is a cluster of small islands composed of coralline limestone.

The only inhabited islands of this archipelago are the three largest: Malta, Gozo and Comino (which is home to the gorgeous Blue Lagoon); each of which are mostly low, rocky islands with rugged, steep coastal cliffs.

The highest point is located within the triangular plateau Ta'Zuta, and rises to 830 feet (253 m).

Malta does not have any permanent natural lakes or rivers, though during periods of intense rainfall small rivers are known to form.
