As March rolls in, many travellers seek out warm destinations to escape the winter chill. Malta, with its rich history, stunning architecture, and mild Mediterranean climate, is an inviting option. While it might not boast the scorching temperatures of summer, Malta in March offers a unique charm and tranquillity that is perfect for a memorable holiday experience.

Explore Malta’s Cultural Gems

March in Malta offers an excellent opportunity to explore its cultural heritage without the crowds. Start your journey by delving into the island’s history at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Valletta. Wander through its narrow streets adorned with Baroque architecture, visit St. John’s Co-Cathedral to admire Caravaggio’s masterpieces, and explore the Grand Master’s Palace.

You can also visit the former Capital City, Mdina, an ancient fortified city. Lose yourself in its labyrinthine streets, visit the Mdina Cathedral, and enjoy stunning panoramic views from the bastions. Don’t forget to explore Rabat, the neighbouring town, and discover its catacombs and Roman remains.

Outdoor Adventures

While March in Malta may not be beach weather, the overall warm climate still makes it ideal for outdoor activities. Lace up your hiking boots and explore the picturesque villages, from nature and cliffs to bays and beaches you can never see enough! The scenic trails of Dingli Cliffs offer breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea, while the beautiful landscapes of Buskett Gardens provide a tranquil escape.

Adventure seekers can also explore Malta’s underwater world through diving and snorkelling. The clear waters around the island offer excellent visibility, and you’ll have the chance to discover vibrant marine life and fascinating dive sites, including underwater caves and shipwrecks. One can also take boat trips and harbour cruises and enjoy the sea this island has to offer from a comfortable seat! Make sure to check the weather forecast before embarking on outdoor activities because rain and wind are still likely during March.

Indulge in Culinary Delights

Malta’s culinary scene is a delightful fusion of Mediterranean flavours influenced by its diverse history. Sample traditional dishes like rabbit stew (fenkata), pastizzi (flaky pastries filled with ricotta or peas), and lampuki pie (fish pie) at local eateries and street stalls. Pair your meals with local wines or the iconic local soft-drink, Kinnie. You can also visit the village of Marsaxlokk on a Sunday to try traditional seafood and go around the market to buy locally made food.

Whether you’re seeking relaxation or adventure, Malta offers a memorable experience that will leave you enchanted long after your holiday ends. So pack your bags and discover the charm of Malta this March, an affordable and breathtaking getaway.
