From the beginning of spring, the archipelago experiences pleasant temperatures, which are around 25°C. Valletta can even boast of being the sunniest capital in Europe. Whether you are interested in sports, cultural and historical activities or simply want to relax in a trendy hotel at a great price, you will find what you are looking for in Malta this spring. To top it off, a veritable fireworks festival will take place there in April.
Thanks to this mild climate, Maltese nature wakes up in the spring. Everywhere you will see wild flowers and smell their fragrances. Thus, orange blossom diffuses an aromatic and sweet scent. The small island of Gozo, in particular, is known for its colorful spring scenery. As it is very sparsely populated, you will take long nature walks here.
The ideal season to practice sports
You will practice sports, without sweating profusely. Moderate temperatures and refreshing sea breezes create perfect conditions for vacationers who like sporting challenges. So plan your hiking, biking or mountain biking itinerary. Or treat yourself to an adrenaline rush along the Maltese coast, which turns out to be very rocky and steep in places. This is why Malta is a popular destination for mountaineers.
Many activities will also be offered to you on and in the azure sea water. You will kayak around the idyllic little island of Comino, swim in the heavenly “Blue Lagoon” or snorkel, in search of various mysterious shipwrecks.
No mass tourism
Malta has another advantage: you will visit popular attractions, such as the “Blue Lagoon”, in peace, because Malta welcomes far fewer tourists in spring than in summer. You will notice it in Valletta, for example. The capital is a real architectural gem, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On almost every street, a splendid monument or historical building appears in front of you. If you want to take a break, you can sit on one of the many sun-drenched terraces, with a view of the impressive port.
It’s not just Valletta that bears witness to Malta’s rich past. Thus, the megalithic temples, such as those of Ġgantija and Ħaġar Qim, will transport you to the year 3600 BC. Yet time has not stood still in Malta, as St. Julian’s proves. This bustling coastal town will delight you, with its state-of-the-art luxury hotels, trendy beach bars and elongated boulevards, where people love to be seen. In the spring, you will discover these places at your own pace.
By traveling outside the high tourist season, you will even benefit from a financial advantage. In fact, many hotels and bed and breakfasts offer excellent spring conditions: the famous The Phenicia offers a “city break” package for two people. While at Valentina, a design and modern establishment, you will enjoy a 20% reduction on the price of the room, until the end of May.
As you can see, there is no shortage of luxury and comfort in Malta. Hotel 1926 will pamper you with its brand new wellness complex, featuring a swimming pool with an Aquatonic circuit. At the Seaview Hotel, you’ll float in a fantastic infinity pool, which overlooks the sea. Would you rather stay in something a little more authentic? Malta and Gozo have many historic farmhouses, which now house guesthouses. These types of farms are much smaller and guarantee a particularly warm welcome.
If you book, check your agenda and travel plan. Because even during the low season, there are great events on the activity calendar every month. But the palm goes to the international fireworks festival, which will be held from April 24 to 30, 2023. Each evening, the sky will be filled with sparkling colors. Some artists even practice pyrotechnics to music. This festival attracts not only a multitude of spectators, but also photographers.
