Packing for Malta
As an archipelago of three islands in the Mediterranean Sea – comprising Malta, Gozo and Comino – Malta’s climate is largely influenced by the sea. Summers are hot, dry and sunny and though day-time temperatures hit 27°C and above the cooling sea breezes offers a reprieve from the heat. Suncream, sunglasses and a hat are essentials, and it’s also worth having some long-sleeved shirts to keep those arms covered. Remember your swimming gear if you’re beach-bound, and check whether your accommodation provides beach towels – you may need to bring your own. Winters are mild with bouts of humidity and heat brought on by the Sirocco winds from Africa.

Cycling is a great way to get around the Maltese islands. Both Malta and Gozo offer great opportunities for those travelling by saddle.
