When to visit?
One of the most excellent qualities which the country boasts is that it has a pleasant temperature and minimal rainfall throughout the majority of the year. Though the temperature can fall to around 15 degrees in the winter months, Malta's climate is generally pleasant after March and April and boasts a sea breeze which is refreshing against the hotter summer sun. In the summer month of July, the beaches and attractions get busier, so pre-book your holiday letting in advance if you are planning on visiting Malta in the densely populated hotter months. Despite this, however, there is a shut down in August, when some smaller local restaurants do not even open for visitors, so keep that in mind, and maybe try a self-catered apartment, when you can make food for yourself whenever you choose.
How to get there:
As Malta is situated in the Mediterranean Sea, the only option to visit the island is to fly or arrive by boat. All flights arrive into Malta's one and only international airport, which connects the country to various worldwide destinations, such as France, Britain, Germany, Dubai and Norway. The airport can be reached in under 45 minutes from anywhere on the island by bus or a hire car. Another option is to arrive at the island by boat or ferry, which is most accessible from Sicily which takes just an hour and a half from the Italian port. The small size of Malta means the whole country can be explored in a concise time, so embrace yourself in the public transport, or hire a car at the airport so that you can explore in your own time, while never being too far away from your holiday rental and accommodation.
Malta food and culture tips:
Maltese food is true to the Mediterranean stereotype or being fresh and full of flavour, as the national dishes bring out the best of the islands sunny location. ?ob? bi?-?ejt sounds incredibly exotic, but it does in fact just translate to ‘bread and oil'. This simple but tasty dish is especially popular in the summer months, alongside ‘Torta tal-Lampuki' which is a fish pie, and Timpana which is a baked macaroni dish. Stay in a short-term apartment rental or a self-catered apartment, and spend your savings in a traditional Maltese restaurant sapling this local cuisine. Malta also has its own language which is spoken by nearly all residents; however it shares many similarities with the neighbouring country of Italy, so be sure to brush up on the Maltese vocabulary before securing your holiday rental.
What to do and see in Malta:
Bathe on the glorious coasts in Malta:
As Malta is an island, there is no shortage of vast sandy beaches and emerald shores surrounding the country, which boasts exceptional scuba diving opportunities. Choose a short-term apartment rental near the unspoilt blue lagoon, and immerse yourself in the beauty of this cove which is made up of white sand and crystal clear water, or secure a holiday villa with a private pool in the sunbathed St Paul's Bay, where you can wake up in a room with a view of the harbour.
Admire the timeless architecture
It is, however, not only the beautiful coastline which attracts visitors to Malta, as the country is steeped in history which dates back to the prehistoric era. Tourists admire the timeless temples and hunt fossils which date back thousands of years, so book an apartment which is surrounded by history, and leave your holiday letting before the crowd to explore these attractions before the rush.
Go on a rocky adventure
Opportunities to get involved in adrenaline pumped activity are endless in this tiny country, as the clear waters offer unmissable views from its snorkelling and scuba diving sessions. Malta's rugged coastline is made up of a rock formation which attracts avid rock climbers from across the globe, but you don't necessarily need to be a professional to tackle any of these activities, as training classes for beginners take place throughout the year. Stay in a cheaper accommodation or youth hostel and spend your budget getting to know Malta through the many adventure opportunities which the county offers. The small proximity of the island means that you are never too far from any adventure wherever your holiday letting may be, whether it is land or water based.
Enjoy the summer sun in the city
The eastern capital city of Valletta is the bursting with opulent palaces, grand harbours and bustling bars, which mean it is a must-visit for any tourist who visits the island. Continue the theme of living like a royal after exploring the marble places, and check into a luxury apartment rental in Valletta, or choose one of many short-term apartment rentals and don't return home until dawn in this vibrant, sun-drenched city.
