The Maltese Islands have a pleasant sunny climate with a daily average of around 12 hours sunshine in summer going down to 5 to 6 hours in midwinter.
Located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, travelers get the benefits of being surrounded by beautiful water, but the way the Mediterranean is surrounded by the European continent to the North and on each side, and the African continent below, there is no real threat of hurricanes or severe tropical storms like those found in the Caribbean during certain times of the year.
In fact, Malta is surrounded by calm, tranquil water and bathed in warm, sunny weather nearly all year round. The average temperature in Malta is 18 to 19 degrees Celsius (64-66 degrees Fahrenheit)
Annual rainfall is low, averaging 568mm a year. Bathing in the sea is quite possible well into the ‘winter’ months, and the peak beach season can last until mid- to late October.
That means Malta’s climate is mild all year round.
