Malta when it rains

Malta when it rains

It’s only raining very little during the summer in Malta. In winter therefore much more.

In Malta there are two kinds of rain, no rain at all or very strong rain.

The streets are mutating to small rivers and the valleys are flooded full of water. It can happen that the traffic will stop for a few hours. Maltese drivers are normally not mean and are cautious not to drive crazy through the puddles if pedestrians are walking beside – so everything in Malta is slowing down if it rains.

The wastewater-system


Malta owns an old wastewater-system. During the summer months, when it rains very little it is adequate. But during the winter season it overflows in almost any site. The water is directly directed into the sea. In the bays you can clearly see the dirt washed into the sea from the streets - it’s somehow disgusting sometimes. There is no reason for improvements, because it affects only for a few days a year and it doesn’t influence the main income of the state, tourism.

Sights in Vittoriosa (Birgu)

There is so much to see in Vittoriosa - the whole city is an open-air museum. The city is surrounded by an incredible flair of history, culture and modernity. The structure of the city equals that of a triangle. On the side facing to the inland there is a big city-wall with two gates. The most interesting way to enter the city is through the Couvre Porte. The side directed to the harbor entrance is also fortified. On the fortification, high above the sea, there is a nice promenade. From there you have a nice view on Valletta, the harbor gate and Kalkara. On the tip of the city is the Fort St. Angelo. The fort is stunning. The last side of the triangle, the side facing the Dockyard Creek/Senglea, has no fortification. There you can find the Casino de Venezia, Maritime Museum, St. Lawrence Church and a luxury hotel. In the city itself something is awaiting you around every corner. In the centre lies the Victory-Square - the square got his name after the Great Siege 1565 of the Turkish. It is said that the Grandmaster La Vallette was wounded during the siege on a fight at the fortification ’Poste de Castille’. The Turkish were already inside the city when the Grandmaster counterattacked them together with his personal body-guards.

St. Georges Bay

St.Georges Bay is a small beach in Paceville. The sand is not very beautifully, coarse-grained and brownish. The bay itself is very limited; one can only swim to a maximum of 150 - 200 meters out to sea, as from then onwards the area is reserved for anchoring boats, which also block the view to the open sea. The beach is very well frequented in the summer.

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.
