Best time to visit and holidays:

Spring and early summer, April, May, and June is the best time to visit Malta. The weather is not hot (sunny days and the nights are cool) and there are fewer tourists. You'll able to swim if you don't mind the slightly cooler waters.

We went at the beginning of April and the weather was PERFECT! The temperature was great for getting out and exploring without being miserable in the heat.

If you are a history buff I recommend taking the time to visit these historical remains.

Hope this inspired you to visit this incredible location! If you are looking for more options check out my Exploring Malta series!
