Malta really is a superb year round destination with more than 300 days of sunshine every year, but without knowing the weather, what the crowds will be like, or when the festivities, holidays and major events will take place, it can be difficult to decide on when to visit. What the best time will be for you depends on why you`re traveling and what type of Malta holiday you`re looking for.

One of the first things to consider when planning a trip to Malta is the weather and how hot you would like it to be while you`re there. One of the great things about this small island nation is that the climate is generally terrific as it does not suffer from extreme temperatures. It typically is warm with a pleasant sea breeze that helps prevent the heat to become too overwhelming. However, there are variations in the temps you will want to note, the summers are usually dry and warm with the temperatures around the mid 80`s, and the highest temperatures in July. Winter temperatures drop to around mid 50`s to 60`s with January as the coldest month, as well as an increase in rainfall at this time, although there is not much rainfall in Malta year round. Here is a guide to help you better understand when might be the most enjoyable time for your chosen activities while you are in Malta.
