Can a Haps regular winter move from Messina to Malta and claim Malta is its nearest fortified space?

I agree, Naples is closer.
You could do it from Palermo.

Nope. Palermo only has a port on the Tyrrhenian Sea so it's 3 moves from there to Malta, but only 2 to Naples.

You can winter in Malta from Tripoli, and that's about it.

So it works in movement points?

eg troops in Cartagena, Palma and Cagliari could winter in Tunis?

There are no movement points in HIS. For Winter you count spaces, with each sea zone being one space.
So yes, Cartagena, Palma and Cagliari could winter in Tunis.

Wrong way to think about. Spaces separated by a pass are still only one space away from each other for winter moves.

Malta is 2 spaces from Messina - one sea zone movement and one land movement (offloading from the transport is considered movement) - while Naples is 1 overland movement. You must take the shortest movement path unless wintering to your Capital.
