By December 30, 2021 October 18th, 2023 No Comments

We all know Malta as a summer paradise, but it is not a well-known fact that Malta can be a great place to travel during winter. When most of Europe shivers shrouded underneath a blanket of snow, Malta enjoys sunny days with temperatures ranging between 10℃-17℃/50℉-62.5℉. Find a month by month breakdown of the Maltese winter below, so that you can make up your mind and book your flights for an offseason Malta vacation. 


September marks the end of summer in Malta. At this time of the year, you will feel that the humidity and temperature slowly start to fall. The sun will still shine bright in the sky and the days will be long as well. The days are, however, punctuated by cool breezes and even the occasional cloud.

You will not have to make major lifestyle changes to stay comfortable. No need of wearing a jacket since the temperature still remains well above 20 degrees celsius. The seawater remains warm, so no need to pack your wetsuit. 

In general, the temperature stays between 25℃ and 30℃. So, you can still take a bikini-clad walk by the beach in the evening, take a dive into the pool whenever you want, and do everything you could do in the summer. It is basically summer without the scorching heat! 


The temperatures fall further in these months, as winter approaches its prime months in Malta. That said, the average temperature is still around 18℃ to 25℃, which you can easily survive without heavy winter clothing. There can be scattered episodes of rain and heavy wind, but you will not have to stay indoors for prolonged periods. Other than a few showery days, you will find these months to be the most delightful in the archipelago. 

Rural Malta takes on its most beautiful form in November/December. The landscape sparks to life, the skies become untamed and majestic, and the temperatures are so mild that you can hike for miles without experiencing much exhaustion. 

Even though it’s a little chilly for the beach, you’ll see lots of natives and tourists enjoy the waters. Malta enjoys sunny Christmases most of the time, so locals often set up their tables underneath the bright, blue sky and have their Christmas feast outside. 


January is historically the coldest month in Malta. There have been records of snowfall in January, but they are incredibly rare. The norm is 10-17 degrees and the days are still full of sunlight. It does tend to rain more in these months than other times of the year, but you can expect a fair amount of sunlight. 

The lush greenery of the undulating countryside, as well as the big waves crashing against the spectacular shoreline, will take your breath away. The weather is ideal for hiking and exploring some of Malta’s most captivating attractions.



During the months of March and April, you can clearly feel the presence of spring as the temperatures get back on an ascending trend. It would be a smart idea to visit the islands at this time since it is just before the onset of the peak season. You can get a mellow summer vibe without spending premium money. April is a great time to travel to Malta since the spring is in full swing.
