Malta climate overview

Malta is a collection of small islands to the south of Sicily in the central Mediterranean. It has a rich cultural history that is reflected in the many Norman and Baroque churches, citadels and castles, both in the towns and perched on cliff-tops. It is a relatively densely populated country with an economy that is heavily dependent on tourism.

Malta is made up of three islands, Malta, Gozo, and Comino. Malta is by far the largest island and is mostly low-lying limestone. The interior is sparsely vegetated with some open shrubland and small pockets of mixed forest. The coastline is a mixture of sandy beaches and rocky shoreline with coves and bays, and some spectacular cliffs.

The smaller island of Gozo, to the north, is slightly hillier than the main island with the same rugged coastline.

The climate of Malta is typically Mediterranean with long summers that are dry and warm. In early and late summer hot sirocco winds can blow up off the Sahara desert bringing gales and dust that obscures visibility.

The sunniest time of year is July and August when days go by without a single cloud in the sky, however this is also the hottest time with high heat and humidity.

From October through to February scattered showers are likely with December being the month with the most rain. There are moderate amounts of cloud during this time, but daytime temperatures never fall below 10°C and frost never occurs. Even in winter there are usually 5 hours of sunshine on average each day.

The Central Mediterranean is one of the most active earthquake regions on earth and Malta has not escaped its share of devastating tremors. The last major 'quake was in 1693 when many historic buildings were seriously damaged or destroyed.
