Malta is such a small island that it’s understandable that sometimes you’ll wonder what on earth you’ll find to fill your time. But luckily it’s a small and resourceful island so there are always plenty of things to do in Malta. It’s easy to become bored and lost for inspiration though so I’ve created an entire section of the site dedicated to bringing you ideas and tips for things to do in Malta.
Things to do in Malta: Beach, Pools and Nature
This is super handy whether you live here full time or are just on holiday and want to know exactly what you should do whilst visiting Malta. Whatever you’re into, whatever hobbies and interests you hold, there will be something for you to do to enjoy your time in Malta. If you’re outdoorsy or love taking pictures then there are plenty of beaches in Malta to visit and seriously, there is loads of nature and greenery to explore, hike or ramble through.
If you prefer swimming pools to the beach then there are plenty to take advantage of, my personal recommendation goes to Cafe del Mar on the north of the island. It’s simply stunning!
Sailing, Boats and Yachts
Whether you’re a boat owner or fancy chartering a yacht in Malta, my Yachting in Malta section is bound to hold some information for you. Think, Malta marinas, yacht chartering and reasons why you should choose Malta for your next sailing holiday!
Things to do if the Weather is Bad
Luckily, the weather in Malta is pretty good all year round, however there will be days in winter where it’s wet, windy and a little chilly. For that reason, I created a post filled with things to do in Malta when the weather is bad, which will hopefully give you a spark on a grey day and help you find a way to while away the winter hours.
