Useful Tips

Here are some useful things:
If you are going to go shopping for food you should go in one of the bigger supermarket-chains, like Scotts, Towers or Arkadia. The small shops are more expensive - you will see the difference in your wallet soon.

If you are going to discover the island you should think about hiring a car. Especially if you are a small group of 4 or 5 people, when divided, the cost will be comparable to the prices of the bus fares.

Opening hours in Malta are much different from others in the world. During the summer (July to September) most of the shops and government offices open only from 8am to 1pm. During the winter from 8am to 1pm and from 4pm to 7pm. Supermarkets and tourist-shops are open from 7am to 7pm. There are some exceptions like the Bay-Street Complex in which the shops remain open till 10pm every day. However the shops in Valletta are closing down at 7pm.

Prepare for composure. Malta is a calm place - there is no hustle. Don’t be angry, just relax!

If you have any problems or you can’t find something, just ask for help. The people in Malta are very friendly and very helpful. One can easily meet new people and make new friends.

If you are going to stay for a long time in Malta you should think about buying a Vodafone or Go Mobile SIM-card (prepaid-card) for your mobile telephone. These can be purchased in almost any shop and cost around €10. The telephoning costs are €0.05 for each SMS (€0.23 for SMSs abroad) – but the costs for calling aren’t comparable cheap as sending SMS is. Depending on the telephone provider and to where you make the call you will have to pay around €23 and €60 for calls on the island.

Bugibba

What can Bugibba offer and how to get there? Both cities, Bugibba and Qawra, are directly linked to each other. The cities developed together into one another. One can hardly recognize where Qawra begins and Bugibba ends. The bay hardly offers sandy beaches, on the contrary is very rocky.

Birzebbugia - sothern city in Malta

Birzebbuga lies deep in the south on the great bay of Marsaxlokk(Pretty Bay). The city is very nice and has a certain charm. Unfortunately, this charm is shadowed by the cranes of the Malta Freeport, the air traffic and the oil tanks/pipelines of EneMalta nowadays. The bay has a nice promenade which follows the whole coastline in Birzebbuga.

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.
