What can I do on first night Malta? Unfortunately the night between 2020 and 2021 will most likely be a small and quiet new year's eve.

It's constantly somewhat hard to choose what to do on New Year's Eve. Regardless of whether you like to ring in 2021 out of a jam-packed club, at Malta's or Gozo's main squares, or at home with a glass of champagne and a few companions, here are our recommendations for how to make this New Year's in Malta extraordinary.

New Years Eve Restaurants Malta

First Night Malta

If instead of going to a new years party, you prefer going to dine at a restaurant, Malta has plenty of restaurants where you can dine. Not all restaurants will be open, but the majority will be. Many restaurants will serve a set menu, buffet, but you will find restaurants which will have à la carte. One thing to make sure is that you book your table as early as possible due to the high demand of Maltese who go out for dinner.

Apart from dining at restaurants, you may want to celebrate right from your hotel. A few hotels open their restaurants for dining and also for celebration. It is best to check with your hotel to avoid disappointment. Luxury hotels also organise a new year's eve ball.

There are many new year's eve balls around the island and they are held at very popular places such as Xara Palace, Xara Lodge, Chateau Buskett, a Gala at Portomaso suite and many other places.
