What are those things you just must do when in Malta during the summer months? After a day at school, the heat commands outings by the sea, while night-time is when things are happening and people come alive!
Swimming at St. Peter’s Pool
This beautiful natural swimming pool with crystal clear blue-green water is ideal for snorkelers and swimmers, or simply for those who want to spend a relaxing day in the sun. It is located close to Marsaxlokk, at the tip Delimara Point in the south-west part of Malta.The beach is covered with flat rocks. Beware of the sun in the middle of summer days. It can be quite strong and there is not much shade—the high cliffs are not always a good shield from sun rays.
It is not surprising that Malta has earned a definite place on the international diving map. With all its diving attractions, from wrecks and artificial reefs to caves, tunnels and underwater cliffs, all overflowing with marine life, diving in Malta promises a unique experience. Diving in Gozo is even more remarkable, with Dwejra ranking amongst the top diving sites anywhere in the Mediterranean. There are a large number of diving centres and schools in Malta and Gozo, which run a safe, fun and fully qualified business.
Be Adventurous with Water Sports
There’s a load more fun to be had in the invitingly clean sea with its year-round mild water temperatures. Take your pick of water-based leisure and adventure activities, from kayaking, parasailing or day-cruises.
Take a Trip to the Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon in Comino is perhaps the most stunning spot in the Maltese Islands. Its turquoise waters resemble what you would only really expect to find in a swimming pool, earning it much fame as a favourite film location. Take a day cruise, which will include a tour of Comino’s many caves and inlets, and enjoy a full day of swimming, snorkelling, lazing around in the sun or exploring the barren island’s little treasures. Bear in mind that there are very limited facilities on the uninhabited island, so take with you all you need!
Al Fresco Dining
After a long, hard day splashing around in the water, enjoy dining under the stars in the warm summer breeze, tasting Maltese and Mediterranean culinary delights in your favourite company. Or perhaps you may prefer international flavours? Whatever your choice, there are several great restaurants in Malta, many of which offer a dining terrace, especially those situated by the sea.
Enjoy the Nightlife
Get ready to make the most of Malta’s nightlife scene: it has just been getting better and better! Several international artists perform in Malta throughout the summer, with the Isle of MTV being the largest outdoor, international clubbing event.
Go to a Village Festa
Perhaps the most unique experience in Malta during the summer is the Traditional Maltese Village Festa. Expect brass band parades, processions carrying life-sized statues of the village patron saint and extravagantly decorated churches and streets, all lit up for the occasion. Church bells ring and fireworks will light the sky. Street stalls sell food and traditional sweets. Must be seen to be enjoyed.
Clubclass in Malta is the place to be during summer.
