I went to Malta in March and stayed in Buggiba. A lot of the restaurants and shops were not open because of the season or closed early. I went to Comiono for the day and it was the highlight of my trip I couldn't recommend it more. Gozo was gorgeous too.
This was a list I put together for a friend recently Places: - Valletta - take a good full day to soak up the Capital, loads of lovely streets to wander and sights to see, especially views across the harbour! - Mosta - famous church/dome there which had a bomb fall through the roof during Sunday mass. Nearby is the Cauchi shop (it’s like a mini WH Smith!) - Mdina - the silent city, not so silent anymore but still gorgeous (used in Game of Thrones filming too) - Ta’Qali Craft village - famous for glass blowing and lace making - Blue Grotto - take a boat out - Gozo - a day out here is great, you can also go to the even smaller island of Camino too from here (great swimming spots). - Mellieha Beach/Ghadira Bay Must eat: - pastizzi (pastry with either ricotta cheese or mushy pea) - the ricotta ones are my favourite! - Maltese bread is so good! - Cisk beer (pronounced Chisk) - Imqarrun il-Forn (baked pasta dish my Grandad always made us) Other: - Festa - these are night time village or town celebrations. Any excuse to party! They fall on different dates in different towns so check the dates you’re going and head to whichever town is celebrating. There will be lots of food, a massive decorated church (different saints are celebrated), usually a parade and then tonnes of fireworks! - The churches are always amazing - make sure you are suitably covered for entering them and always look up as they have some of the prettiest ceilings from memory!
I stayed in Valletta, I rented a car from the airport on landing and drove around the island - distances are very near, parking not so much of an issue. Valletta with its incredible cathedrals, architecture, cafes, bylanes is just amazing and so are Mdina, Blue Grotto, Gozo.
I was twice in Malta. I stayed in an Airbnb in Marsaskala. I liked it there because it was peaceful. It was on the right side of the Island and there I discovered Xrobb l-Għaġin. I loved walking there and seeing rocks and the beautiful sea in front of me. The area had nice shops to buy food. Their public transport is great. I think it takes you maximum 2 hours to drive from one end of Malta to the other. I liked the Island Gozo way more as it is way calmer there. There is ferry from Malta to Gozo for around 5 euros retour. When you arrive to Gozo, sightseeing workers try to sell you ticket for the hop n off buss. I happened to refuse them as I couldn't afford spending so much money on that bus but then they offered me reduced rate which i accepted. And I loved the hop n off bus ride and highly recommend that investment to you too! In Gozo, the hop n off bus takes you to Dwejra and that was really amazing for me to see. I travelled in April and July to Malta. I liked it way more in April as the sea was very clear and beautiful.
I stayed in Sliema and used the bus service/boats to get around. There are some nice restaurants and bars around in Sliema although I visited at Julian's one evening, which seemed a bit livelier in the evening. The beachy areas in Sliema are more rocky rather than sandy but other beaches are close by short bus ride. I found Sliema to be cheaper for accommodation.
Amazing place! Blue lagoon, Blue Grotto, Mdina, St Peter's Pool, Valletta, Paradise and Golden beach are a must see. I stayed in hostel Inhawi and it was really good. Also I've eaten Asian food in Kuya Asian Pub and it was amazing.
Definitely go to gozo and blue lagoon in the north. If you want to travel low budget you can move by buses but it can take a while to go from one side to the other, otherwise you can rent a scouter/car and move very easily(bare in mind they drive on the left) Also I saw many cruises options to go from valletta/sliema up to the north for a daily trip but this is definitely very touristic.. then of course Valletta, Mdina, Sliema are must see.
Explore Valletta the capital city, Rabat and the exchanting Mdina. Go to Zurrieq don't miss the Blue Grotto. Go to Marsaxlokk and the three old cities. Sliema on the other hand is for those seeking bars , shops and that bit of extra hassle.
I spent 2 nights in Marsalforn on the island of Gozo and it was highlight of my trip. I also enjoyed my visit to Blue Lagoon but recommend getting there earlier because by 1 PM it gets very full and it is not pleasant. Don't try to do so much on same day because transport in Malta is a bit exhausting. In my opinion the main sights are far away from each other. Often there are no direct busses and you have to change busses in Valletta. I got very tired by this. Long time in busses and they stop all the time because of traffic jams etc it caused headaches But it is beautiful country
Public transport is nice and easy to use but can go around the houses so can take a long time. If I go back there I'd definitely hire a car as the roads are so good. Definitely visit Valletta, beautiful place and I just spend the day wandering, going in museums/churches. Very chilled vibe.
Bus system works though I found timings to be off by 10 mins or more and sometimes they did not show at all. Blue Grotto, M’Dina and Valletta are must sees. Loved the war museum and its maps. Incredible stories down there.
Things to do: Places to visit: Valletta, Imdina, Rabat, The Three Cities, Marsaxlokk, Gozo. Safety: Malta is small, safe and has good public transport. Recommendations: Consider staying in Floriana, just outside of Valetta. It is less crowded but at a nice walking distance to many locations.
Public transport is OK most routines start from Valletta. Paceville is full of restauranys and bars. It can get loud, but is generally safe. Valletta is a must, visit Mdina - go to Fontanella and enjoy a nice piece of case. I also recommend visiting Hagar Qim and Gozo.
Things to do: Definitely do a day trip to Gozo and the Blue Lagoon. Accommodation: Stayed at the Two Pillows Boutique Hostel and it was lovely. Recommendations: Get a bus pass for the week. That was super handy.
Things to do: Definitely go to Gozo for a day. St. Peter’s Pool was great too and of course, Blue Lagoon. Safety: Felt completely safe the whole time I was there Accommodation: Stayed at the boutique hotel called Tritoni and I loved it. Recommendations: Valletta was beautiful and calm and honestly it’s such a small island that it doesn’t even take more than 10 mins to get to the side.
