The weather in Malta in March gets warmer and daylight is longer to order to enjoy the beauty of Malta. In our opinion, it is a good time to come over.
March is still the month of low tourist arrivals so the island will still be fairly quiet. During this time the Maltese also go for their first swim, but the sea will still be cold. March is the month of springtime and hence it will be perfect for a walk in the countryside.

This depends on whether you love this weather. We cannot give you a definite answer, as it all depends on your reason for visiting Malta. March in Malta is beautiful in every aspect since the weather is neither very cold nor very hot.
With an average of 9 days of rain and around 7 hours a day of sunshine, the weather during March can sometimes be unpredictable. We recommend packing a good mix of summer and winter clothing and shoes.
During this month Malta experiences drastic changes in weather. One day it can be stormy and the next day it can be very hot and sunny. During early mornings and late evenings, the weather is still fresh.
Beaches around the island start to be scattered with a few Maltese and tourists who sunbathe or also go for a short swim. The sun during March can be quite strong so bring with you sunscreen, hat and sun glasses. The UV can already be around 5 to 6.
When the sun is shining, you might want to wear a t-shirt. Still carry a cardigan around your waist just in case you need it. The afternoons will be more hot than the mornings.
Days get longer as the sun sets after 18.00, with the last week of March setting at 19:00 as the clocks move one hour forward.
The change of weather from January and February is noticeable as from the morning you feel that the air is warmer. The Maltese will warm their houses less with fireplaces or heaters as they are not that damp.
Windy days are very possible and quite frequent, so are cloudy days with light and heavy rain.
