Malta is a perfect destination for a winter break – the mild weather a welcome relief from the grey skies and cold temperatures we can expect at home – but what exactly will the weather be like? What can you and the rest of your Solos group expect? What do you need to bring?

Malta in winter has weather a little like a British summer - and that can mean unpredictable. Winter days can be spring-like and warm with blue skies, no wind, no clouds and high temperatures in the middle of the day. But, be aware it’s not always like this. Malta is an exposed rock in the middle of the Med and sometimes faces fierce storms. Your Solos tour leader is always on hand and will always make suggestions for ways for you to spend your day – whatever the weather.

While it’s recommended to bring T-shirts and even shorts it’s also advisable to pack some pullovers, something water proof and some footwear that isn’t sandals. No doubt you and your fellow Solos travellers will be venturing out together in the evenings and while it’s sunny and by day, it can be damp and chilly at night.
Malta is a relaxed place so don’t waste space bringing too much finery (unless you are aiming to dine out posh a lot). Your Tour Leader will recommend some local restaurants and you’ll see the Maltese do like to dress up Italian-style when the occasion calls for it, heels, ties and all and older people always do.

Here are some clothing suggestions for a week in Malta from now till the end of March. Layers being the operative word!

T-shirts: ideal to layer and useful to sleep in!
Cotton jumpers / cardigans: one thick, one or two thinner to layer.
Fleece: ideal as lightweight and warm, great for seafront walks and substitute for a coat/jacket Jeans, Chinos: either of these, but choose one lighter pair for hot winter days. Aim for one pair smarter for dining out.
Linen Trousers/Skirts : possibly a pair of thicker weight linen trousers or a skirt (but don’t bother with these Jan-Feb as its mostly too chilly to wear then)
Water/wind-proof jackets: ideal to bring a lightweight waterproof – casual zip-up fine. It is can double as a fleece that’s a removable lining, all the better. Ideal to wear on harbour cruises trips and seafronts.
Smarter shirt/blouse: you might find you can peel off a layer inside in restaurants, so plan to have one or two smarter shirts.
Umbrella: Even if it ends up inside out as when it does rain - it’s always windy
Shoes: anything you’ve worn in that’s low heeled and comfy (pavements can be dodgy). Sandals useful still for some days, but don’t ever leave home for Malta in winter without something more waterproof.
Swimwear: But don’t forget your swimsuit! People swim all year round in the sea and out of the wind, most winter months are fine for sunbathing!
