Malta sunindex: the best time to travel to Malta
Malta may not be the first destination that comes to mind when planning a holiday. This is mainly because of the absence of wide sandy beaches and long boulevards. However, this beautiful island located southwest from Italy has a lot to offer
The climate is ideal for a sun holiday. You can spend your days along the pool of one of the many luxurious hotels in St. Julians. The atmosphere of the island is unique because of the Italian, Spanish and Arab influences. Most restaurants offer menus with a great variety of cuisines. Please, bear in mind that it may get very warm in July, August and September

Malta during the winter
Because the weather on Malta is only pleasant during a short part of the winter not many travel agencies offer package holidays to Malta. If you would like to enjoy a winter sun holiday on Malta you will have to book a flight and hotel separately. A large benefit of Malta is that almost all hotels, restaurants and shops are open during the winter. This is often not the case in for instance Greece and Spain.
