San Anton is a beautifully picturesque resort situated in the centre of the island of Malta. Considered one of the most upmarket resorts on the island the small town of San Anton has become popular with holidaymakers looking for that something extra from their holiday. A holiday to San Anton puts holidaymakers in a grand setting surrounded by beautiful architecture.
The main attraction of a San Anton holiday is the San Anton Palace and Gardens, formerly a mansion for the 'Grand Master Antoine de Paule' and now the residence of the Maltese president which is located directly opposite the hotel. The stunning botanical gardens of the palace are an attraction for holidaymakers to San Anton and locals alike and are well worth a visit. There is also St Mary's parish church, nearly 400 years old and one of the best examples of renaissance architecture on the Maltese archipelago.
Although not by the sea, sun seekers considering a San Anton holiday need not worry as the Corinthia Palace offers a courtesy bus to its sister hotels on the seafront of St Julian's and guests have free access to the Lido facilities located there throughout their holiday.
The climate is typically Mediterranean, similar to that of Southern Italy or Southern Greece. In the summer there is up 12 hours of sunshine a day.
