Top 5 Things to Do in Malta
Even though the Maltese Islands are pretty small compared to other tourist destinations there are still plenty of fun stuff to do during your stay here. I have compiled this list of my personal top 5 things to do in Malta and I hope you enjoy it.
Visit The Farsons Beer Festival
I am a huge fan of the very popular Maltese beer Cisk so I have to list this event right at the top of my list of things to do while in Malta. During the Farsons Beer Festival you will be able to try out all the traditional Maltese beer brands while listening to music from local bands on two different stages. If you are planning a trip to Malta I would recommend you come here in July to make sure you catch the next Beer Festival, it will be worth the wait.
Go Scuba Diving
I will have to admit that I have never personally gone diving in Malta due to my unfounded fear of the sea but when I see pictures of the various diving hot spots in Malta I can see what all the fuss is about. Malta is probably one of the best locations for scuba diving in Europe and if that’s something you would like to try out there are a lot of different options when it comes to this activity.
Being a golfer myself it’s obvious that playing a round of golf (at least one round) would be in my top 5 list. At the moment there is only one golf course in Malta, the Royal Malta Golf Club, which is a a 5487 yard par 68 course. There are currently some plans in the pipeline on extending the golf course to a full length par 72 course but I wouldn’t bet on that being completed within the next 10 years.
Go on a Fishing Trip
The Maltese Islands are perfect if you are looking for a holiday destination where you can go for fishing excursions. While in Malta you can go fishing for Tuna, Lampuki (Dolphinfish), Snapper, Swordfish, Barracuda and many others. There are quite a lot of different companies organising fishing charters so make sure to shop around to find the best deal.
Visit a Winery
The Maltese wine culture is growing at a rapid pace with new wineries popping up every year. The two largest wine manufacturers in Malta are Delicata and Marsovin. Both these wineries are organising wine tastings for tourists if you are a large enough group. They are also hosting wine festivals across Malta and Gozo from time to time so if you are a real fan of wine I would suggest planning your holiday according to the wine festival dates.
