Quick May Weather Malta Taughts

Countryside is beautiful although with the lack of rain the greenery starts drying up. Gozo remains greener.

The locals are already with summer clothes. The Maltese change to summer clothes very early but they do carry a light cover with them. 

A great time to be in Malta for your holiday. Good time for sunbathing. UV index 8 to 9, so proper cover and creams. 

Daylight is already 10 hours a day. Early sunrise and late sunset gives you a good day to enjoy outside. 

Rain fall is already minimal. See the average temperatures data on this page for a general idea of what you will find. 

If you are coming from a colder country, this is surely like summer for you at the same time neither too unbearably hot sun.

May will be surely nice but still it might be risky for bad weather although if it is fine it will be very beautiful. 

Still by this time the weather starts getting more stable. 

Average rainfall in May is 9mm so you should have nice weather.  

During the weekends when the weather is fine you will see the sandy beaches full with people sunbathing, but the sea temperature is still cold but not bad for a good fresh dip.
