Malta is generally considered to be a safe place to visit, both during the day and at night. However, as with any destination, it is important to take sensible precautions when out and about after dark. It is best to stick to well-lit and populated areas, avoid carrying large amounts of cash, and be aware of your surroundings. Additionally, it is recommended to avoid walking alone late at night, and to take a taxi or other form of public transport if possible.

I can't think of a safer country I ever visited. At times it almost felt boring. Stayed in Valetta and all the places seemed very friendly. The night walks were the best. I was exploring via public transport as it was incredibly cheap and convenient.Posted: April 30, 2023

I am solo traveling to Malta at the start of July and I am thinking of going for 11 nights. This is my first time solo traveling so I am anxious to fill up each day with activities/sightseeing. When on holidays I spend a lot of time on the beach (I know there are no sandy beaches in Malta) so I am starting to think that maybe 11 nights is too long? Please give me suggestions of fun stuff to do ...Posted: May 21, 2023
I am travelling to Valletta, the capital city of Malta, for 2 days only. I found rooms quite expensive there, and I want to travel on a budget. Other options I find for accommodation are St. Julians or Sliema, nearby cities. It seems like access to these cities from Valletta is easy. But I want to know if anyone has any experience? Because I am interested in visiting Valletta and not the other ...Posted: December 14, 2022
