Thinking about skip the winter time? There are probably several options to run off to but definitely there are a few really special ones. Malta could be the perfect place for your winter getaway, especially if you are not just looking for something warmer but for a culturally rich and unique destination. Prices are also lower, there are just a few tourists and there is no unbearable heat. Ready?
Probably the first question that came to your mind: okay, but how is the weather at this time? And we have some good news for those who are afraid! The weather is pretty ideal in Malta in the low season as it has a subtropical Mediterranean climate, with warm and moist winters. While the average annual temperature is 22C°, between October and March it’s usually 15 to 22 C° according to Holiday-weather.com.
Go to the beach
Yessss! Why not? Even if you cannot soak in the crystal clear water – unless you are comfortable with lower sea temperature – you can still chill, pick up some pastries before and enjoy the spectacular views. One of the best place for relaxing is St. George’s Bay close to Paceville, which offers just a little stretch of beach but in the low season it’s pretty quiet. Buggiba beach also perfect for those who want to relax and enjoy the sunrays.
For families the most ideal beach is definitely Bizebbuga beach in the south because of its soft sand and calm water. It’s even safe for children to swim and there are plenty of restaurant around. Mellieha Bay on the north is also a good choice because of its shallow water. It is the largest sand beach in Malta.
For those who are more adventurous and want to hike a little bit, Malta won’t dissapoint you guys either. Let’s pick up a comfy shoes, pack your swimsuit and head to Marfa Ridge walk. You will find secluded bays on the way such as the pretty Slung’s Bay. Other cool coastal hike is from Dingli to Blue Grotto – which is an epic cave and popular diving spot.
