Winter in Malta

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.

Malta has no adequate wastewater system. A rainy day can stop the life in Malta. Major roads are filled up with water, traffic stops and people can’t get out of the houses without totally wetting their feet. Especially Msida is a hot-spot, all the rain water runs down the streets into the valley. The consequence is a meter high stream in the centre of Msida. The best thing on such a day is to wait until the rain stops and the roads are clear.

Heating in Malta


Winter in Malta is only short and not really very cold, so there is no reason for a fully equipped heating system in the houses. What to do during the cold and windy months of the winter-season? You can heat your home with gas or electricity heaters.
Heating with gas is cheaper then with electricity. The only company distributing electricity in Malta is EneMalta - so the company has a monopoly - therefore it can decide the prices it charges.
A bottle of gas costs around €5. At an average usage it will last one or two weeks.
Handling is quite easy and safe, but take care it is still dangerous if it is misused.

The sea in winter


The sea can be very rough. Meter high waves can be easily seen. Where the tourists laid in the summer is nothing but bare sea in the winter.

Sights in Mdina and Rabat

The whole city of Mdina is worth seeing. The city consists of many small alleys, a huge city wall with three gates, a very nice cathedral (from inside as well as outside), an observation platform (from there you have a nice view over the northern part of Malta), and much, much more. Rabat whereas is a modern city. There are also some nice sights, as the St. Paul’s Church and Grotto, the Museum of Roman Antiquities and the St. Paul’s Catacombs. While Rabat is a bit more vital, Mdina offers more culture and history. Have fun looking through the pages.

Swieqi

Swieqi is a calm and also nice district/village above St. Julians and adjacent to Paceville. From Swieqi you just need between 5 - 15 Minutes by walk to the entertainment centre Paceville or to St. Julians. Swieqi is a nice place to live. Dogs are allowed; almost everybody has at least one. The prices for flats/houses are comparably cheap.

Tarxien Temple

The most popular temple in Malta can be found in the village of Tarxien and is known as the Tarxien Temple. This was accidentally discovered in the year 1916. It is said that a farmer was complaining about too many huge stones in his field - the consequence was that an archaeologist focused his attention on this field.
