How safe is Malta?

I haven't faced any dangerous situations. I don't know about night clubs though. Walking alone after midnight has also been safe. People are quite respectful in Malta. I know the uni area best and I haven't noticed any problems there.

After covid us Maltese got a bit worried about femicides as males started acting strange but overall police are being visible in streets and makes people feel safe. Bars and restaurants are 100% safe even the people who serve are very helpful.

I haven’t lived here for very long, but the men/guys I’ve encountered walking alone have always been great at keeping their distance, making sure to not walk right behind you, even crossing a street to make you feel safe. Everyone is super kind, and I’ve not once felt unsafe walking alone, neither day or night.

Is Malta safe to travel?

4.8 /5

Based on 68 experiences

Solo travel experience

I went to Malta on a solo trip from Italy. Malta is a very nice island to visit and stay a few days. It was very safe. I never felt in danger. The food was okay, the traditional food is not anything special. The Beaches and nightlife is worth it. But I would suggest going in summer months as it gets pretty windy in spring.

Solo travel experience

I felt safe, except for one time in Sliema when I was walking down narrow, dark streets at night. The food is good, with a lot of pasta and pizza. Malta is very crowded, but the public transportation is good and you can get anywhere if you are patient.

Is Malta worth visiting?

Overall rating

Group travel experience

Malta was a very nice place, but it was also very hot in the summer. There were many people partying, but there were also nice beaches. I really enjoyed jet-skiing. The Blue Lagoon was very crowded, but it was also extremely beautiful.

I think that Malta is a good destination if you’re looking about nice view and some great activities. Visiting lagoon by boat, going to the beach etc. You can also eat at a good restaurant for a cheap price. They also speak English there so no problem communicating with locals.
