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.

Sliema

Sliema offers some swimming possibilities. The majority of the coast consists of rocks; however there are also small areas with sand. It is not an excellent beach; however it serves its purpose. Many tourists come for a short sun bath here.

St. Julians, just beautiful

St. Julians is wonderful. The promenade is very nice and at night everything is lit up. Many restaurants are very inviting, not only for the food but also for the beautiful view over St. Julians bay and the street-life. Cafes, bars and souvenir shops are everywhere. It is worth to have a look at.

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.
