I read there should be a Boots in Sliema or Valletta, but can find the location on the internet.
Does anyone know where it is?
Which boat tour company would you guys recommend, what is your experience?
We are thinking about taking a tour from Sliema up to Gozo to see Malta from the sea side and to have some time to spend in Gozo.
Just wonderingif might be better
just to go B&B, and enjoy wider menu choice outside
The hotel if anyone knows immediate area & hotel?
Also, I read an older answer stating there was an IMAX screen
on the island, does anyone know if this still exists & perhaps located
Final Q's! We are goingbin September, can anyone recommend
A watersports place thst offers jet ski & scuba?
If you know this location, is there anywhere that offers yoga?
Thanks so much for taking the time
Grateful for your views
In Sept we plan to stay 4 nights in bugibba hotel then 5 in fortina hotel.
We want to be close to scubadive opportunities which a previous post confirms sliema is.
I thought breaking up the holiday staying at two locations would give two different experiences.
I am looking interested and in yoga while there, is it was widely offered?
I was a thinking also of a one night stay possibly two in gozo.
Would this be too many stays in a location that is quite small anyway?
Grateful for any responses
I will be having my 50+10 birthday in Sliema on 03 April 14.
Could anybody recommend a local, traditional and possibly querky restaurant with great atmosphere and/or great view maybe.
We will be staying in Sliema but don't mind nipping across to Valletta for the big night.
Here for a week and am running short of wool. Where can I buy double knit? We are in Valletta but doesn't matter! Help please.. Knitting, my addiction!!
My idea is to stay 4 nights in Bugibba & 7 elsewhere in Sept. Interested in scuba diving.
Can anyone suggest a second location please? Somewhere not too remote.
Can't wait to visit Malta...there appears to be wonderful self catering options everywhere so we are having a hard time deciding which part of the island? Please give pros and cons for Bugibba, Meilleha, Marsascala??? To help, we are a mature, long married couple. Experienced travellers appreciating history, beaches, architecture, local culture, ethnic food and drink and meeting local people. Happy to be "frugal explorers" and willing to walk and take local transport. Will self cater and are open to any and all suggestions!

I'm travelling to Malta for 10 days next week, what type of clothes would be suitable
Hi, we are four adults travelling to Malta in June this year. We have been looking at waterfront apartments in Senglea and Vittoriosa / Birgu. Not having ever been to Malta can anyone give advise on whether this areas are a good choice. We are all over 50, intend to drive and see all of the island, we like to sit on a balcony with a glass of wine in the evening but also eat out in reasonably price restaurants. As we like to walk to bars in the evenings we would like some advice on whether these areas are safe to walk around in the evenings. Thanking you in advance for any advice.
Any recommended shops for grocery/.food items?
how many bars are there in mgarr, Thinking of travelling with my husband and 17 year old daughter. We want a quiet and relaxing holiday looking at the Grand in Mgarr but wondered if there was any nightlife at all. we don't want lively bars but would like a few. cheers
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?
We are spending 1 week in Malta in April and would like to stay close to everything, we want to go outside the hotel and then there´s shops, cafe´s bar´s restaurants. We are not afraid of a little noise and we are not there to lie by the pool or on the beach (guess it´s also too early in april) we want to be in the middle of everything. So what do we choose Sliema or Valletta and which area of either Slieam or Valletta?
Hello.. i am going to visit Malta next April but i don't know where is the best place to stay.. St. julian? Valletta? Sliema? Please help me!! I want st. Julian but i am afraid tha is far from everything..
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!
I consider a trip to Malta in February. It is only possible from Sunday to Sunday. I have an idea of renting a bike. Assuming 40-60km per day (because it will be enough for my wife ;-). I believe that 2 days in Malta and 1 day in Gozo will allow me to see most of the islands. We don't like to stay at one place in the evening as well. I count one additonal day for seeing something extra like Valletta and Hal Saflieni Hypogeum. It gives me only four days in total. I'm afraid that seven days is a bit too much. Let me know that I'm wrong please ;-)
The sea can be slightly too cold for swimming/snorkeling in February, can it?
Is that right that there is a high chance for long lasting heavy rain days in February, which can spoil a bike trip idea at all?
I don't mind traffic much as I'm from a country well known for ruthless drivers (hahaha).
I will appreciate your answers.
We hope to spend 3 weeks in Malta over Christmas and the New Year. Ideally in an aparthotel as we do not do breakfast and like to sometimes cook or eat out.
How prepared should we be for meals over the holidays? Will supermarkets be closed at odd times? Do cafe's and restaurants close for family time? Do we need to book a Christmas meal out? I do not want us to have a miserable Christmas day with no wine and nice food !! Help !! Many thanks Alix (UK)

I will be visiting malta from the 15th to the 18th of December. So far my itinerary is as follow
15th of December arrive at 2:10 pm by the time I get to my accommodation in valletta it will probably be 4pm so I guess I am still in the time for the sunset? Where can I go to take some lovely pics of sunset Upper Barrakka Gardens perhaps? can i walk there or do i need a bus?
Once it gets dark should i go to sliema or st pauls to have dinner?
16th of December planning to book a gozo day tour which includes: Mgarr, Victoria citadel, Azur Window in Dwejra, Xlendi Bay and Ggantijja Temples
17th of December planning to book a mdina day tour which includes: Mdina, Dingli cliffs, Mosta
18th of December since my flight is at 6:15 pm I thought I would go to Marsaxlokk in the morning to take some lovely pictures (how can i get there quickly?) and then come back to valletta and explore the city on foot to take some more photos
What do you think of this itinerary? have i missed out on anything important?
Also could you recommend me a nice bakery in valletta where I can get good coffee and good quality baked goods or croissants for breakfast?
What is it like busy/quiet good for a business, does it get many visitors etc thank you
I am having difficulties finding day tours departing from Valletta in winter. Why is that? I though that Malta with its mild winter weather would be a magnet for tourists so I would expect tourist companies to offer daily tours in winter
If you know of any company which has winter day tours please let me know
I would like to do a walking tour of valletta, visit vittoriosa and mdina and visit gozo
Has anyone got a photograph of the new entrance to Valletta ?
I liked the old arch ! I think it was part of Malta's heritage but I have heard it has been destroyed forever.
how much money should I bring?
were going in november for a break is it classed as of season do the bars and pubs start shutting down like in some parts of spain and portugal or can we still enjoy a good old knees up ! rachel 31 x
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!
Were looking for a small bar with locals, food and nice music on Malta, any options?
