10 things to do in Malta this summer – Experience a true Maltese Summer event

10) experience a true Maltese summer event

We have reached the end of our 10 things to do in Malta this summer, and if all these options, most of which will cost you very little, haven’t got you in the mood to visit this beautiful island as a traveller, rather than a tourist, then I really don’t know what will. Granted, this place is tiny, but since its people love to be entertained, there is plenty to do, especially in summer.

My last advice for you if you find yourself on the rock during the hot months is to throw yourself into the crowd and experience a true summer event, and in many ways you are spoilt for choice.

It’s become some kind of a habit for the Isle of MTV to be hosted in Malta, and through the years, thousands of Maltese and foreigners alike have welcomed Lady Gaga, The Black Eyed Peas, and Enrique Iglesias amongst others. For something more traditional, try at least one of the many Festas which periodically take over each Maltese village (visit here for places and dates), some of which have spectacular firework shows (check out the August St. Mary feast, held in 7 villages simultanously) or indulge your artistic side by attending events from the Malta Summer Arts Festival, featuring plays, performances and concerts.

Finally, since the partying scene is very much alive, djs and artists like Faithless and David Gueta periodically come to host shows for the appreciative public. For a bird’s eye view of all your options, visit what\’s on Malta.com.mt.

And more importantly, if you get to experience anything in this top 10 list, drop me and my readers a line because we’d love to know how it was. Let’s all share some Malta love.
