According to a famous belief, the word ‘Malta’ comes from the ancient Greeks who called the island Μελίτη (Melitē) or “honey-sweet” owing to its historic honey production. Some even attribute the origin of its name to the Phoenician word ‘Maleth’ which means “a haven” considering Malta’s numerous bays and coves. Both meanings are befitting for Malta’s Mediterranean paradise. Previously a naval power owing to its planned positioning, Malta today is a hub for wide-scale tourism and has a stable and advanced economy.
