We will be staying in a Bungalow in a few weeks time. Looking forward to chilling, etc. We read that you can travel early evening to Gozo, have a meal, etc. Is this possible during October? Any other suggestions for the odd day/half day trip?
The Maltese Bocci games we saw employed a 'cylindrical' Roller. What are the dimensions, weight, material of these Rollers? They seem to fly in a very erratic manner do they have a deliberate weight imbalance?
How do the Rollers point score? Are the Rollers used optionally in any game and at any time (within a turn)? Does each team would have the statutory 4 balls, plus, optionally how many Rollers? We've seen two rollers per team on occasions. Perhaps a roller being used in the turn of a ball or in addition to?
Do the Rollers have to leave the hand in a horizontal cylindrical fashion or in any manner, even end-over-end?
Name of the large rock near Mgarr ix-Xini, opposite the tower, and in front of the resort there. Name of the resort would also be welcome.
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.
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!
Does one walk over from Birgu to Senglea???And how long does this take?Many thanks!

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?
We are travelling with baby and are interested whether Hipp baby food available on Malta or not? I mean puree in jars like white carrot, pumpkin, pastinaken, apple, pear, apricot, banana?
And where to look for them in supermarkets or in pharmacies?
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
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.)
We are thinking of going to Gozo during some of the winter months, September to November or so, and we want to rent an apartment to save on hotel bills. Can anyone point us in the right direction please?
Are there car rental companies on Gozo?
Is it allowed to move with rental car from Gozo to Malta and back by ferry?
We are going to spend a week on Malta in September, my wife, our 15 months daughter and me.
Among all other things I'd have made a couple of dives, may be 2-3 days of diving.
Trying to understand first of all if it's better to stay on Gozo or on Malta to combine comfort for traveling with small child and same time willing to dive on best sites there.
Appreciate in advance your help to decide.
I'm gonna visit Malta, Sliema, this year in September, together with my wife.
I guess the second half of the month.
Is it possible to rent a scooter, for a week a so, to go sightseeing round Malta?
Please advise what are the rules, is it possible to book a scooter in advance, and maybe some links for good rent servises.
Ramla bay to buggiba and back...how much and how often
Hi, I need to know how to reach from Sliema to the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum by public transport by tomorrow
Can anyone advise me on which of the above hotels to book please? I will be travelling with my daughter and my 1yr old grandson in April but wonder which would be the better of the two hotels if anyone has any thoughts?
Hello I am travelling to Malta for the first time for 4 days . Staying in silema can you recommened some good restaurant that are not over priced .
what clothes should i pack for the end of april? :)
We want to visit Valletta ,preferably in an apartment, but most seem to be situated on steep streets. As we are in our 80's( although reasonably fit ) ,we don't want to find that we can't explore easily on foot. Any help or advice would be gratefully received .
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.
I would appreciate any input you have on the matter.
Are there any Beaches in Valletta near cruise port
