The long-deserted White Rocks Resort in Malta is an urban explorer's paradise as seen here in contributor rikk08's aerial footage.  The complex has been sitting, untended and slowly decaying, for two decades on the coast of Pembroke.  Instead of gathering tourists for its initial intended purpose, it has drawn in street artists and vandals over the years — becoming an eerie graffiti gallery for URBEX enthusiasts.  Check it out from above in this drone video by contributor Rikk08.
