Fun Things To Do In Malta Not Least Sunbathing
In Spring Summer Like Weather

Check our activities in Malta for May 2017 to find top Malta International Fireworks festival, The Little Mermaid, Marco Masini in Concert, Malta Philharmonic Orchestra concerts and more! 

Fun things to do, many Maltese and tourists start sunbathing at prominent beaches especially at sandy beaches. It is the time for exams so many are constrained indoors but activities are not least.
