Travel guide to Malta provides you with hints of what Malta is like during the different seasons including main activities and attractions during each season.
You are surely asking yourself this question. When is the best time of the year to travel to Malta? What do you exactly wish to do?
Spring starts 21st March.
This is the ideal time to visit for those who love the transition of the weather to summer, with not too much heat, rain or wind. However the sea temperature is still cold and not ideal for swimming although on sunny days one can spot the odd local and a few tourists swimming. Sunbathing is more popular at this time.
If you do wish to be in Malta in very hot weather, this is the ideal time before the heat kicks off. It is the time that the number of tourists increase due to the favorable weather conditions.
It is also the time where feasts start to be celebrated in villages both in Malta and Gozo. This is something that all foreigners appreciate as they see something that is typically Maltese.
It is also beautiful to go to the beach, not for swimming as the sea temperature is still cold, but for sunbathing.
Spring is the best time for walks in the country side where green vegetation is still abundant with splendid flowers everywhere.
Activities range from International fireworks festival, to Celebration of Catholic feasts of Good Friday and Easter Sunday as well as local council village festivals.
Summer starts 21st June.
By now the hot weather is gearing up. School exams will be almost over by end of June. By now the Maltese summer fever starts. Everyone is excited to start organizing bar-be-ques on the beach, sunbathing, and enjoying relaxed evening walks along the various promenades.
