Prices in Malta

Prices in Malta

The cost of living is comparably average. Approximately 2/3 of the products consumed have to be imported from abroad. Unfortunately, the small market allows many monopolies to emerge.

There are three kinds of supermarkets in Malta

1. Snack Bars and small shops- open from 7am - 7pm (some even 24h). These shops are very expensive, but have also a good location.

2. Small supermarkets - these small supermarkets are located in residential areas. They usually open from 7am - 7pm. The prices are 10-20% more expensive then in the big supermarkets.

3. Huge Supermarkets - They are not as big as Wall-Mart/Carrefour stores in Germany, England, France, etc. but for Maltese relations they are huge. The range of goods is large and the prices are good.

Attention: There are special shops which offer only one kind of products like frozen food (Miracle Food) or farms.

During the week there are numerous vendors with small trucks in the streets in the residential areas. They sell fruits and vegetables at good prices - however these prices are not written down and tourists are often cheated.

Cottonera (Three Cities) - the ‘three cities‘: Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea

The word Cottonera describes the three cities: Vittoriosa (Birgu), Senglea (L‘Isla) and Cospicua (Bormla). The peninsula in the middle, Vittoriosa, was the only peninsula of the three peninsulas which was inhabited at the arrival of the Knights of St. John. In the past the city was called ‘Borgo del Castello‘. That‘s where the name Birgu comes from. Valletta didn‘t exist at that time.

Electricity/Sockets in Malta

In Malta the sockets used are 3-pin, British standard. On the first gaze it might look quite confusing for people who are not used to it, but it isn’t. The on/off switch is on the upper right side. Obviously if you switch it off there is no electricity on the socket and vice-versa. In this case it is switched on. The socket has three holes.

Sights in Marsaxlokk

In Marsaxlokk there isn’t much to see. The city has a nice bay, full of colorful traditional Maltese boats, also known as Dghajjes- or Luzzu-boats. The attraction #1 is the market. In the centre is a beautiful big church surrounded by old houses. Not far away from Marsaxlokk in the south lies the Fort St. Lucian. North-eastwards are an old church and the temples of Tas-Silg.
