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.

Ferry connection Sliema-Valletta | Valletta-Sliema

You can’t really believe it but there is a ferry connection between Valletta and Sliema. The transfer takes 5 minutes and starts every 30 minutes or hour - depending on the season.

Vittoriosa (Birgu)

Vittoriosa (Birgu) is probably the nicest of the three peninsulas southwards of Valletta. The city was the first settlement around this area. When the Knights of St. John arrived in Malta in 1530 they set up camp in Vittoriosa and started to upgrade the fortifications, including the Fort St. Angelo. After the Great Siege of 1565 they moved to Valletta. Birgu has nowadays a population of 3000 and the fortifications are as impressive as those of Valletta. Behind every corner you can discover something new. The best way to enter the city is through the ‘Couvre Porte’ which was restored in 2002. Above is a modern gate which breaks through the fortification of the ‘Poste de Provence’ and is used as a road for cars.
