The month of May is also referred to as the beginning of the summer touristic season. Summer starts early in Malta so if you come in May you would already start seeing people at the beach, wearing summer clothes. The period of summer tours starts. It is still a fairly quiet time but if you come late May, then the island will be much busier with tourists.
As said above, May is a mix of fresh air and warm days. By this time tourists will wear t-shirts and shorts and sunbathing during the day. The climate changes frequently as we are heading towards summer. Here are our suggestion on what to bring on for your holiday.
May is the time to start preparing for summer. It is a great month to come to Malta. Neither too hot, but neither cold, still fresh in the morning and evening.
Countryside is beautiful although with the lack of rain the greenery dries up. Gozo remains greener.
The locals are already with summer clothes. The Maltese change to light clothes very early but they do carry a light cover with them.
Daylight is already 10 hours a day. Early sunrise and late sunset gives you a good day to enjoy outside.
Rainfall is already minimal. See the average temperatures data on this page for a general idea of what you will find. Average rainfall in May is 9mm so you should have nice weather.
If you are coming from a colder country, this is surely like summer at the same time neither too much hot.
May will be surely nice but still it might be risky for bad weather although if it is fine it will be very beautiful.
During the weekends when the weather is fine you will see the sandy beaches full of people sunbathing, but the sea temperature is still cold but not bad for a good fresh dip.
