Cost of living in Malta

Cost of living in Malta

The cost of living is comparably average. Approximately 2/3 of the products consumed have to be imported from abroad. Unfortunately, the small market allows many monopolies to emerge.

With those rules you can save money:

1. Buy food in the big supermarket chains, like Scotts and Towers.

2. Buy fruits and vegetables at the small vendors on the street or in farms around the island.

3. Buy certain products in shops which only offer one kind of product. For example you could buy frozen food at Miracle Foods (frozen food reseller) - there the food is sometimes up to 50% cheaper.

4. Buy certain products (like animal food) in huge quantities and ask for a discount. It is common to give a discount in such cases.

5. Buy smaller electrical products abroad - some companies like eBay (UK) or Amazon will send it without problems to Malta. After you add the postage costs to the product it will still be cheaper than purchasing it in Malta.

6. One can easily save money in Malta, if you follow the inhabitants of the island to go shopping. Obviously, if you buy your food by vendors in tourist areas you will certainly pay a higher price.

Worth seeing in Gozo

Gozo has something to offer which Malta does not have. For example on one hand the Azure Window, a naturally formed arch on the coast. On the other hand the capital Victoria with the small romantic lanes and the large bastions, from which one has an excellent view of the whole of Gozo and parts of Malta and Comino. Then there is the beautiful beach, the Ramla Bay, and the historical temples of Ggantija. In addition the flair of the island and the inhabitants is a completely different one than in Malta.

Marsaxlokk and the fish-market

The market in Marsaxlokk takes place every day, but on the weekend it is the biggest - especially on Sundays. Offered are fish (only till 12 o‘clock), smaller hardware, clothes, accessories, toys, souvenirs, shoes, CDs and DVDs, fruits and vegetables, etc.

Winter in Malta

Malta is often described as a nice summer-country with sunshine, beaches and blue sky. However there is another side of Malta - the winter. For the first time you will feel winter coming in December and you have to endure it till February/March. January is the darkest and possibly coldest month in the year/winter. This month has the rainiest days, the least sunshine-hours and the lowest temperatures.

How is winter in Malta?

There is no frost or snow but mostly strong rain showers and winds. That’s not even so bad, but there are some other factors which make this worse.
