What To Expect From September Weather & Upcoming Events In Malta
- Sep 8, 2018
Wondering whether you should visit Malta for a weekend break this September?
What’s The Weather Like In Malta In September?
September is the perfect time to visit Malta. The days are still long and sunny, the temperatures are still warm in the mid-twenties and the summer crowds have died down so it’s a little bit quieter too so getting around is a calmer and cooler experience.
During the early autumn, the sea is still warm so it’s a great time to go diving in the crystal-clear waters of Malta and swim through all the exotic and colourful fish. The smaller island of Comino, located between Malta and Gozo, is the best place for diving so whether you’re a pro or a beginner, there’ll be a place in the sea for you.
Places To Visit In Malta
Malta has a range of impressive cliffs, valleys and bays which make it a great place to hike. There are dozens of routes you could take to explore the beautiful island, and with the temperatures being a little lower than in the Summer, September makes it the best time to explore. Why not pack a picnic and overlook some of the island’s most spectacular views?
The capital city of Malta, Valletta, has a selection of main attractions to see, and what better time to see them than when the crowds have lessened in September? The Church of St Paul’s Shipwreck is a sight not to be missed, as well as the Manoel Theatre which is one of the oldest theatres in Europe!
The mysterious golden-stone Arabic walled city of Mdina is worth visiting whilst in Malta. It’s worlds away from modern Malta and has hidden lanes offering exquisite architectural details. Often referred to as the Silent City, its main attractions are the Mdina Ditch Garden, St Paul’s Cathedral and the National Museum of Natural History.
September Malta Events
If you’re familiar with Malta than you would have heard of the Valetta 2018 Cultural Programme that kicked off on 20th January.
Celebrating Valletta’s status of the European Capital of Culture Year, Valletta has had, and continues to have, hundreds of local and international artists, writers, performers, designers, choirs and film makers taking part in the 2018 Cultural Programme.
September isn’t too late to experience these amazing activities and events; in fact, there is still plenty of life left in the Valletta 2018 schedule.
The open-air show of the much-loved classic, Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida, will be taking place on the 13th and 15th September at Pjazza Teatru Rjal. The contemporary production is all about the trials of Princess Aida and her lover, the military commander of the enemy, Radames. The Maltese Philharmonic Orchestra will be the musical partner for this exciting performance, so it will be a fun show worth watching.
Modern Music Days, an interdisciplinary performance combining contemporary music with video-art and dance, is being held on the 15th September at the Valletta Campus Theatre. The concert is said to break the mould and take audiences out of their comfort zones, so definitely do not miss this if you’re feeling adventurous. The programme will feature excerpts from the ballet Parade, and an entertaining selection of works by Nebojsa Zivkovic, Charles Camilleri and the Pulse Percussion Trio, and much much more.
The Ballad of the Salty Sea, taking place on the 20th and 22nd of September at Teatru Manoel, is an entertaining production based on the cult 1967 graphic novel, Corto Maltese: Una Ballata del Mare Salato. You won’t want to miss the chance to see this contemporary adaption of the original storyline set in World War I, which follows the glorious adventures of Corto Maltese, a sea captain and pirate.
Casa Ellul is the perfect place to stay when visiting Malta, as we’re situated at the centre of Valletta among all of these wonderful events and attractions. Close to the waterfront, it’s easy to catch a ferry outside of the city, you can travel by taxi, take a stroll to the shops, bars and museums or make use of the regular buses. We are always happy to provide you with information on the best way to get around during your stay with us, so we hope to see you this September!
