By this time tourists will be wearing t-shirts and shorts and sunbathing during the day.

Bring with you light sweaters, t-shirts and a light jacket maybe for the mornings and evenings.

 Take a tour with the hop on hop off around Malta and a separate one for Gozo. In Malta there are two tours one for the north and south of the island. All tours with stops at the many important locations.

A visit to Valletta and mdina is a must and dedicate enough time to see the most important landmarks.

Visit some of the quiet small villages which are not much visited but have a lot to see and explore. We suggest Mqabba, Qrendi and Kirkop. They are located on the other side of the Malta International Airport.

Visit the UNESCO heritage sites. See details about the Megalithic Temples of Malta. Tarxien temples, and Mnajdra temples.

Book a visit the Hypogeum experience from the online site a unique location to see in Malta.

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.

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.

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.
