  • An excellent souvenir to take home

    Lucky Cent from Malta is a very popular small souvenir to take home with you to your country. This is basically a souvenir magnet to stick to your refrigerator. It certainly looks lovely and attractive complete with a termometer. It is ideal as a gift to friends and relatives. It does not cost much, just a few euros per piece.

  • Suncream

    We got badly caught out by the Malta weather or more specifically the Malta sea breeze. We are normally very careful to apply suncream and to wear a hat when away in hot countries (You can’t be too careful with our pale Irish skin!!!!) but got badly caught in Malta’s early May weather. The temperatures weren’t anywhere near as hot as we have...

  • Plug Adaptor

    Due to Malta’s former status as a British colony, there are many legacies left over from British Governance. The electricity supply system is one such legacy. Unlike most of Europe, Malta uses a British/Irish style three pin socket (very useful for me as an Irish citizen) which catches a lot of continental Europeans by surprise. Don’t forget your...

  • Lonely Planet - Malta & Gozo

    I have always found the lonely planet series of books very useful for planning and learning about a country before my trips. Lonely Planet’s Malta book is another good guide to this small but historically and culturally rich country and gives a simple but well written account of the country’s history, culture and society. I don’t rely too heavily...

  • Take everything

    If you are going to transfer from the airport to your accommodation on the local buses (which I recommend, it's a great experience, and cheap) then travel light. Some drivers will charge you a child's fare for your case, but this is only 0.35 euro and the bus can get very full. You need clothing for all eventualities unless you are going to stay...

  • Dont forget the Jellyfish repellant

    In recent years, Malta's beaches have become more increasingly hit by invasions of The Jellyfish Hordes, especially after rough weather. The Maltese blame it on the Italians or the Tunisians depending on which way the wind's blowing. On bad days, its impossible to swim and if it gets any worse Malta might have to invest in expanding its Splash...
