As the weather gently starts to shift from cool spring days into some slightly warmer weather, it’s easy to get a little excited about the Mediterranean summer on the horizon! Every year, thousands upon thousands of holiday-makers and adventure-seekers flock to Malta to take advantage of all the sun, sea, and fun this island gem has to offer. Whether you’re new to this kind of climate or a seasoned pro, take a look at some summer essentials to make sure you’re at your best this summer in Malta.
Sunglasses & a hat
One of the things people love most about our little island is the golden sunshine we enjoy most of the year! Be sure to protect yourself from getting too much sun by making sure you’ve got a good pair of sunnies and maybe even a hat for extra points. If you’re prone to sunburn, it might be a good idea to have some sunblock on hand for those long days out – nothing ruins a holiday faster than looking like a lobster in pain.
Water (and more water)
Staying hydrated is important in your normal,day-to-day life, but if you’re dealing with warmer weather than you’re used to, then it becomes doubly important.
Let’s face it – dry lips are basically evil incarnate and devilishly uncomfortable. Don’t fall victim to the cracked, burning discomfort that comes from neglecting your lips – get your hands on some good lip balm, preferably with UV protection.
This should be your footwear of choice unless you plan on going on some sort of trek. Flip flops are perfect – you can just kick them off and dip your feet into the crystal-blue sea for a little paddle. If you’re style conscious, don’t worry – they’ve come a long way since the 90s.
For some sweet relief when you’re feeling a bit too warm, get yourself one of those fans you’ve seen your grandmother use. She know what’s up, and you know she’s feeling chill as anything.
A Good Book
A lazy summer’s day is incomplete without a good book to enjoy while you work on your tan or relax in the shade!
Trust us – you’re going to want to remember your Maltese summer. With so many breath-taking sights to see and experiences to enjoy you’ll be glad to have a camera on hand to leave you with a memento or two. Of course, if you have one of the latest smartphones, you won’t need an actual camera, but for that hint of nostalgia, why not treat yourself to an instant camera?
