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.

Mdina & Rabat

Mdina - the old capital

Mdina is the old capital city of Malta and lies on the south-western part of the island. You could say only a little bit in the outback. Beside it is Rabat. The population of Mdina is around 400 people. It is quite impossible that the population can increase, because the whole city resembles more a castle or fort then a city. The city lies 190mtrs above sea level (that’s quite high for Maltese landscape) and is surrounded with slopes on three sides. The city has almost the form of a square and is very strong fortified.

Mistra Bay

This bay is not very easy to reach, that aside however it is worth the trip. On the way from Bugibba to Mellieha one can find it. A small side road leads off the main street to the bay. The bay is not very large and unfortunately it is also very stony.

Ferry Connections Malta-Gozo | Gozo-Malta

The only provider of this service is Gozo Channel Company. The ferry operates every 30minutes in summer and every 60 minutes in winter. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
