What you would recommend to do in Malta ?

18 days ago

Hello,
We are a couple looking to visit Malta from 29th September until 6th Oct. What you would recommend us to do ? We`ll stay at a hotel near Mellieha, and we are looking to stay 1 or 2 days on a beach. Is the weather good ? Can we swim?

Also, would you recommend us to rent a car or use the bus ?

What tour would you recommend us to do, and if so, can we book online something ?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Diana, my wife and I were in Malta this past summer and we had an amazing time. We spent most of our time however in Gozo, the smaller island, and a less time in Malta, all our time in Malta was in Valletta, which was a great place. I suggest visiting the Upper Barrakka Gardens. Its a beautiful place and they shoot cannons off a couple times a day (not sure if they do it all year). If they are shooting the cannons I suggest paying the few Euros to go see it close up, its totally worth it. We spent a good amount of time just walking around Valletta and it was a lot of fun. The Triton fountain is really nice to see. We swam plenty in early July and I believe the water will still be quite warm.

We used the bus/taxis. It wasn't great, but not too bad, and it seemed better than having to look for parking. We did not take any tours, we just spent a day walking around Valletta and that was great for us. Enjoy! Im sure you'll have a fantastic time.

I would recommend buy the Explorer ticket of Malta transport for one week. With this ticket you have unlimited travel on all the buses of Malta and Gozo. You need at least one day to get acquainted with Valletta and her museums. Mellieha has a great beach and in October the weather is still good, but sometimes it rains. On rainy days you can use the hop on hop off bus for 2 days and perhaps on another day have a habour cruise in Sliema.
From Mellieha to Valletta take bus 41 or 42 to Valletta and bus X1 to the airport. I do not recommend to rent a car. We drive on the left, traffic density is extremely high and finding a parking space is always a problem. On the net you can check out Malta transport to see the bus timetables and you can check out Captain Morgan for habour cruises.

For the short time you are staying in Malta it's best for you to stay in hotels. If you can, do rent a car, you can explore the island at your pace....

hello, don`t miss Blue lagoon on Comino, or you will regret it. Go to Cirkewwa early morning (by bus), there you can buy ticket for a boat that takes you to Comino blue lagoon. That`s an aaaaaaamazing place to swim, have fun and take beautiful photos. By the way, with ticket they give you a schedule of boat (boat returns once in 30 minutes), don`t organize to use the last return, because too many people will fill boat at evening :) good luck :)

Hi I organise OffbeatMaltaFoodTrails which you may like to go on which is a 3 hour food tour of either Mdina on a Wednesday morning or Valletta on a Saturday morning. It's a tour of the cities with a professional guide whereupon you visit different eateries and taste traditional Maltese food and drinks along the way. It's a great way to discover both the towns while learning about the history of Malta and grazing as you go. You can find more info and testimonials at www.offbeatmaltafoodtrails.com Wishing you a lovely holiday!
