19 Oct Outdoor Activities Sports and Events in Malta
On the Maltese islands, because of its climate and touristic set up, you can enjoy a variety of sports and other leisure activities all year round including scuba diving, hiking, jogging, mountain biking, rock climbing, scuba diving, para gliding and wind surfing, amongst others.
You will find available the materials needed for outdoor sports for rent at very reasonable prices and there are various locations on the islands where these sports can be exercised. The island of Gozo is a particularly popular location for rock climbing, thanks to its steep cliffs, and mountain biking thanks to its quiet roads and excellent hill climbs and you can also organise with the locals to go on a personal fishing trip if you book it in advance. Imagine catching your own fish and cooking it fresh from the ocean the same day.
Scuba diving is also extremely popular in both Malta and Gozo. The islands boast many interesting diving sites and also a number of certified PADI courses available.
If you are the type of person who only enjoys watching sports you won’t have to worry about missing any big football matches or other sports events. Most pubs on the island show the sports events that are shown on chalkboard notices just outside their premises or announced on their facebook pages. Our favourite bar in the South of Malta is called The Londoner British Pub which serves the best of British dishes, including your traditional fish and chips, bangers and mash and delightful roasts, in the beautiful surroundings of Smart City where if the wife does not enjoy football, she can enjoy a pleasant walk along the Laguna fountain walk. (We didn’t just say that!)
Events in Malta are on every month. Pop concerts, themed parties organised by Swedish and Maltese event organisers, theatre shows, but also historical re-enactments such as In Guardia are popular among tourists and provide great entertainment for the entire family!
