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.

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.

Worth seeing in Gozo

Gozo has something to offer which Malta does not have. For example on one hand the Azure Window, a naturally formed arch on the coast. On the other hand the capital Victoria with the small romantic lanes and the large bastions, from which one has an excellent view of the whole of Gozo and parts of Malta and Comino. Then there is the beautiful beach, the Ramla Bay, and the historical temples of Ggantija. In addition the flair of the island and the inhabitants is a completely different one than in Malta.

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.
