Summer in Malta is a pretty special affair, with endless sunny days and boundless blue seas wherever you turn. The first thing that comes to mind when people think about this piece of Mediterranean paradise is probably an image of sandy beaches and lazy days spent at the beach. While swimming is a popular way to unwind here, that’s not the only thing we do for fun – here are just 7 other things to do in Malta this summer!
1. Scuba Diving
A summer visit to Malta is nothing but incomplete without a good scuba diving session! Our islands may be small, but there are loads of different dive sites for you to be entranced by, from long-forgotten wrecks to colourful reefs and caves.
Get your nearest and dearest together and book a charter boat to fully enjoy the natural beauty of our enchanting coastline! All you need for the perfect day at sea is a boat full of friends and a cooler packed with ice-cold drinks and tasty snacks. Oh, and don’t forget the music.
Feeling a little adventurous? Sign up for a trial flight lesson and you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the island that you won’t forget any time soon.
Whether you’re cycling along quiet country footpaths, minor roads, or rugged off-road trails, taking the time to explore Malta’s scenic routes and hidden-away valleys is a rewarding experience any day of the week.
5. Horse Riding
Spending a few hours exploring idyllic Maltese countryside on horseback is probably one of the most rewarding experiences you could have during a Maltese summer. Pair up with one of these gentle creatures and enjoy an incredible, fiery sunset together with your friends.
Abseiling is an awesome way to see the island from a totally different perspective as you spend a few hours scaling Malta’s most rugged cliffs and tallest heights. New to abseiling? Don’t worry – you can find guides who’ll teach you how to rappel down smaller, less intimidating spots. You’ll be the next Spiderman (or woman) before you know it!
If you’re visiting Malta over the summer months, then you absolutely can’t miss a bit of snorkelling in our crystal-blue sea. Just beneath the water’s surface, you’ll find a whole world of colourful fish, fauna, and magical rock formations that’ll make for an experience that’s not only fascinating, but serene.
