    • Tunnel from Valletta Waterfront

      Valletta Aug 9, 2015 at 12:49 PM

      I've read of a tunnel that can be accessed from the lower level of the MCP car park near the bus terminus, but where do you enter it from the waterfront if arriving on a cruise ship? Also, from the cruise port, where do we need to walk to use the Barrakka Lift. Since we would like to visit the Sunday Market at St. James Ditch first, the tunnel seems to make more sense to get into town and then use the Lift when we return to port. Many thanks for your assistance.

      Local small grocery stores in Valletta for tradtional local food products...?(Not Wembleys!!!)

      Valletta Aug 6, 2015 at 6:44 AM

      Where can I find a local grocery store in Valletta to buy some prickly pear jam as well as other local goodies? Please not Wembleys! I am looking for a local small grocery store that locals use.I hear Wembleys just caters to tourist and prices are quite over priced. I do not know if the daily street market on Merchant street has vendors selling these items..but surely there must be a small grcery store or two?? Many thanks!

      Diving round Malta

      by DenisP15 Online Now May 21, 2015 at 12:24 AM

      Hi there,

      Planning my first trip to Malta in October.

      And now I'm looking for the most helpful information concerning the up coming trip.

      In this topic I hope to find some utolity information regarding diving round Malta,

      we are two not so much experienced divers, Padi OWD, but too exited to dive new places and see this unique underwater beauty and mystery.

      We are interested in to start with some shore diving not far from the coast, and one or two trips by boat to some outstanding dive sites.

      Please be so kind to advise what destination to choose not far from good and quality dive shop

      Hope will be lucky to read about it within TripAdvisor.

      What will you advise to take some equipment with me or not, whether it is good enough?

      What is about diving insurance, should I attend it in advance or get it upon arrival?

      Should we be aware of anything?

      by Kathie_R Online Now May 11, 2015 at 12:11 AM

      Hi there

      This August I`ll go to Malta for my birthday with my boyfriend. I just started searching for hotel and divecenter. I`m certified diver (CMAS *) and I`m thinking about getting PADI AOWD/CMAS ** certificate during this trip, my boyfriend has never dive before so he probably will get OWD certificate. Hope you will help me to find answers for following questions:

      - What is better, to choose 5* hotel and eat there or 3*-4* hotel and eat in the city?
      - Which location to choose? Gozo or somewhere else?
      - Have you visited any dive center? Which one do you recommend? (We are looking for fun and professional instructors, for teaching my boyfriend)
      - Any info we should know before visiting Malta (ferry boat, food, etc.)
      - What fun to do for birthday party (clubs, shows, fun activities etc.)

      Thank you in advance, hope you will help us to make this trip awesome

    • Malta pass - any experiences?

      by Andi39 Online Now May 10, 2015 at 6:46 AM

      We're travelling to Malta in June. I've just come across an advertisement about the Malta pass. In some countries, these passes are well worth their price, in other places not at all. If someone has first-hand experience about the pass, I'd be more than happy to read it.
      INFO: prices in May - with 50% discount are the following: one-day pass 24,95 EUR; two-day pass 39,95 EUR, three-day pass 49,95 EUR. If you purchase the pass until the end of May, you can get it for these reduced prices; and the pass is valid for 12 months. So if someone is considering buying such a pass, it's worth getting it in May. (You can buy it online, if you wish.)

      Car hire in Malta

      by MacedonianUK Online Now Mar 4, 2015 at 3:29 AM

      Hello Peeps,
      I will be visiting friends for a week and I will be staying in Santa Venera.
      I know there are plenty local buses to take me to Sliema, Valetta, Msida and sarrounding area.
      I know that weekly ticket for the local bus is €6.50 so I have that covered
      My question is : does the island warrant car hire or I can do the travelling around on public transport??
      I don't mind public transport, actually
      I prefer it, as that way you get involved in everyday local life so going on public transport is no issue.
      Just wondered what is better, altho it seems car hire for a week is more expensive than two Ryanair tickets to Malta.
      Any advice?
      I would appreciate any input you have on the matter.
      Many thanks

      Okay, so I'm going to Malta, for the first time ever! and there is the possibility that I'll be going alone D:
      Is it expensive to eat out? I'm going for 10 days how much spending money should I take?
      I plan on going on the blue lagoon boat to gozo and comino - Has anyone been on the full day trip and is it worth the 50 euros?
      What is accepted as ID in Malta - apart from your passport (I don't really wanna take this around with me all day every day)
      Is there any must see sights? I'll be 18, I like a bit of sight seeing and history.
      Is there a safe path to walk the length (or width) of the island? If so where could I get a map from?
      Is the bus services reliable? I live in England where the buses don't show up half the time..
      I plan on staying in the Blue Sea San Anton hotel and apartment in Bugibba - has anyone stayed here before? or can recommend a nicer cheapish hotel?

      The "lost planets" of Qwara

      by tango_jd Online Now Sep 18, 2013 at 1:44 PM

      We have stayed in Qwara/Buggiba twice now - during our first visit in 2008 we walked the sea-front promenade from the very end of Qwara to the very end of Buggiba (above the harbour) and along the way saw these wonderful sculptures of the planets. At the Qwara end, we started with Mercury and gradually walked along passing Venus, Earth, Mars ......etc. all the way to tiny Pluto above Bugibba Harbour. The sculptures were set on the wall/railings and were spaced-apart in proportion to their distance from the sun and each other. So, the first "inner" planets were fairly close together and then from Mars outwards became quite distant from each other with Pluto being quite remote.
      This year, with all the building work going-on for the new sea life centre, we only found two planets near the central promenade area and Pluto had gone all together!
      Will they put the missing planets back once building work has finished?
      Was Pluto "demoted" as it was considered not to be a planet recently?
      The mystery continues!

      Also is there anyone familiar with these museums who would give their opinion as to which we should visit if we only have time for one.
      We also intend visiting St John's Co-Cathedral and Museum, the Grand Palace and Armoury and the Casa Rocca Piccolo all in the space of four hours. Which two should we visit first as we may not get the third seen in the limited time we have.
