When To Go

Malta has many charms to discover throughout the year. Summer months bring blazing sunshine – a wonderful time to sit back on the beach or cool off in the sea. Spring and autumn are slightly cooler, making this the ideal time to discover the coast and countryside on a more active holiday. While the winter months are perfect for exploring museums and temples without the crowds. 

Top Tip from SLH

Some of Malta’s treasures lie beneath the waves. Snorkel over atmospheric shipwrecks, or dive to astounding underwater caves.
