In view of this, Cyprus is about forty times larger than Malta. Thus the Cypriot coast is much longer than the Maltese coast. However, when the coasts are compared, they resemble each other very much. This can be seen from the photographs which follow. The sandy beaches, rocky bays and cliffs are much larger in Cyprus.
