Malta Holidays Overview

 

Located at the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, the island of Malta is the perfect combination of sandy beaches, and fascinating history. With more historical monuments per square kilometre than any other country, and a large number of World Heritage Sites, Malta is a cultural paradise. Mix this with a sunny climate, sparkling blue sea, and superb Mediterranean cuisine, and you have the perfect holiday destination.
 
Malta’s main attractions are located in the Valletta and Three Cities areas, although there is still plenty to see and do across the rest of the island in Mdina, Western Malta, Comino, and Southeastern Malta, and in the neigh boring island of Gozo.
 
Most people choose to visit Malta between May and October, but if it is searing heat and lively festivals you are after, July and August are the party months. Out of season the weather is still mild, and rain is scarce, although the countryside is beautifully green and colourful wild flowers can be seen in spring.

Malta holidays - Top Events

Carnival
 
Set mainly in Valletta and Floriana during the week in February that precedes Lent, Carnival parades feature large colourful floats and professional dance groups that compete with each other for prizes. People wear fancy dress, and the crowded bars and clubs play traditional music. Carnival has revolutionary origins, with the under classes running wild through the streets, and this can best be seen in the macabre celebrations in Gozo.

Holy Week
 
Good Friday is a somber day in Malta, with many towns staging a biblical reenactment of the crucifixion. There is usually a parade with robed and hooded figures dragging chains or wooden crosses through the streets in penitence. The best places to see these parades are Xaghra, Zejtun, and Valletta. Easter Sunday is a total contradiction, with mass celebrations including running through the streets with a statue of the Risen Christ to symbolize the Resurrection.

The Malta International Jazz Festival
 
Taking place over three nights in July at Ta' Liesse in Valletta, the Malta International Jazz Festival hosts well known Maltese and International Jazz artists, producing an eclectic mix of jazz styles from the current music scene. Previous artists to perform at the festival have included John Scofield, Al Di Meola, Chick Corea, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Cubanismo, Petrucciani, and Betty Carter. The setting of the starlit Grand Harbour is truly beautiful.
