the top things to do in malta for every price range {under €20}

{winter-spring 2012}

experience the mystery of Spring Equinox at Malta's Neolithic temples: visit Mnajdra temple on March 20th for a guided tour and watch the complex flood with light. ancient calendar? religious symbolism? aliens? who knows! Limited spaces available, tickets €15 and €10 for Heritage Malta members. Call +356 21424231 for more information.

heat things up at Colores del Tango: an Argentine Tango show at Teatru Manoel, February 25th-26th at 7:30pm. Tickets from €15. Not convinced? View a sneak peek video here.

not hot enough for you? Catch a Flamenco performance by Peurto Flamenco at Teatru Manoel, March 10th, 2012 at 8pm. Tickets from €15. (See another sneak peek video here)

attend an opera: Il Trovatore will be presented at Teatru Manoel March 15th-18th at 7:30pm. Tickets from €20. If you’ve never attended an opera in Malta (embarrassingly, we still haven’t) we hear it’s kind of a cultural institution that's not to be missed. Maybe we’ll see you there?

if you love dark comedies, you might enjoy Arsenic and Lace at Teatru Manoel April 20th-22nd and 27th-29th, 2012 at 7:30pm. This play is described as, “a black comedy classic revolving around Mortimer Brewster, a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and not to mention the local police in Brooklyn, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry his ‘girl-next-door’ fiancée.” Ah, the intrigue! Ticket prices to be announced.

{year long}

go sea kayaking: for around €15 paddle around one of Malta's beaches or bays. (Get the whole bay to yourself if you go in the shoulder season.)

sea kayaking at paradise bay beach

snorkel with the fishes: basic snorkel kits at Golden Bay beach cost €12. We think the best snorkelling spots are on the far left side of the beach, near the rocks.

experience Paceville: drinks and transport in, €20 will easily buy you a good time in malta's wild bar district. Remember to go with a group and stay safe.


go to comino: take a private tour boat to comino (around €10 per person). Perhaps the most beautiful place to see in Malta.

see the hypogeum: book tickets weeks in advance as they tend to sell out quickly. Nothing quite prepares you for this gem of Malta's history. Not to be missed.

go windsurfing: approximately €15/hour (at Għadira beach). Lifevest recommended!

rent a sailboat: approximately €15-20/hour for a 2-3 person sailboat (at Għadira beach). With all the wind on this little island you'll have no problem filling those sails.
