WHEN TO GO
Malta is a great year-round destination. Even in winter, temperatures are still pretty mild, averaging around 15°C. That said, the best months for sun are from July to September, when average temperatures hit the 30°C mark. August peaks at more like 40°C, so unsurprisingly it’s also the busiest month of the year. It’s usually pretty dry, as well – most of Malta’s rain falls in the winter months. Spring and autumn are pretty decent, too, with the mercury reaching around 20-25°C.

Health & Safety
You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. It’s also a good idea to get a European Health Insurance Card – or EHIC – before leaving the UK. Though it’s not a substitute for travel insurance, it entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Maltese nationals. It won’t, however, cover you for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment. For the latest health and safety info, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/malta/health
