We are thinking of a 3 or 4 day excursion to Malta in late May. There are a number of islands, etc. We don't want to move every day. How easy is it to go from one to the other by ferry for a day-trip? All suggestions are welcome, including hotels. We will consider upscale as long as its worth the experience.
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?
I m going to Malta in January, looking for a job there, new friends and to enjoy the beauty of Malta.
Please any suggestions is welcome!

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!
I would like to explore Malta in Nov/early Dec this year for week or two. I wanted to know if any one can recommend family, who is happy to provide accommodation and possibly some lovely cuisine. I'm not really fan of hotels or tourist areas, because it doesn't reflects the real life of locals and it's culture. Any help would be much appreciated. =o)
On the internet I have found a national war museum at St Elmo, a Malta at War Museum at Vittoriosa, and the Lascaris War Rooms, also at Vittoriosa. Are all three operating or have some been superseeded by others.
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.
Going to Malta in Mar what's the weather like? Do I need heat in apartment? Is Valletta

We are travelling to Malta in a couple of weeks and this will be our second visit. Last time we loved the quirky old yellow buses and the fares were really cheap! Has anyone got a comparison with how they are now? Are the fares still very reasonable? Are the services much the same? We will be in Bugibba again, which has its own bus station, and not all journeys went-through Valletta. Is that much the same also? Many thanks!
I have often thought of going to Malta during the winter for more than 2 weeks, 2 months would be a dream.
So my question is about where to stay, How would I go about finding a flat to rent that would not cost the earth ?
Thanks for any help.
Does anyone know how much the ferry is one way to Sicily ? I have been on VIrtu ferries website and cannot imagine the price really is 90-100 euro for a one way 60 mile trip? Or am I wrong ?
Can anyone tell me is there a ferry operating between Valletta and Vittoriosa?
Ideally could you let me know where in Valletta the ferry goes from,times and price.

We're limited as to when we can go to Malta - summer or the Easter holidays. We're told that summer would be too hot and humid for us Brits. So we'd settled on Easter next year, which comes, unfortunately, rather early (Easter Monday = April 1st), resulting in being there during the first week or so of April. Guide books suggest April averages only 16-18 degrees C, so the first week could be even lower than that - hardly sunbathing weather. Do we give up and go somewhere else, or have I misunderstood?
All help appreciated!

We're thinking of holidaying in Malta and Gozo in August, but we're worried that temperatures might be well over 30 deg C and perhaps rather hot for us average Brits.
We may be in Malta early next year for tourism and business. Does anyone know a good "Affordable" business accountant there?
