Events In 2022
There are a large range of exciting events planned for 2022, which is sure to give visitors even more reasons to take a trip to Malta throughout the 12 months ahead. In the early part of the year, the first ever edition of the Malta Film Awards will take place in Valletta, as well as the Valletta Barouque Festival and Il-Karnival ta’ Malta – one of the oldest historical festivals in Malta, with just under five centuries of credited and documented history dating back to the Knights’ of St John’s occupancy in Malta.
During April, the Malta International Fireworks Festival will provide tourists with the chance to enjoy a banging evening or two, whilst little ones will love the Nickelodeon Treasure Hunt that is due to be held in May.
Summer will see Annie Mac present LOST & FOUND Festival across a 4-day Bank Holiday at some of Malta’s most unique hotspots, as well as Abode on the Rock, held on Malta’s best kept secret – the island of Gozo – and BPM Festival Malta. Lewis Capaldi will be live in concert in July and the sunny season will end with Malta’s Summer Daze during August, featuring World Club Dome Island Edition, Glitch Festival and Drumcode Festival Malta.
From embarking on a scuba diving adventure, experiencing the unspoiled landscape on horseback or exploring the island by Segway, there are an endless amount of things to keep the whole family entertained during a holiday to Malta.
Malta is known for its world class scuba diving as the tranquil, clear Mediterranean waters provide mesmerising views of shipwrecks and the local sea life in its natural habitat. The secluded caves, stunning caverns and lavish reefs testify to why Malta is regularly voted the second best diving destination in the world, and a popular destination to gain diving qualifications.
Children can gain their PADI certification from the age of 10, and those without certification are encouraged to try snorkelling.
Malta’s sister islands Gozo and Comino are just a 25-minute ferry away from Malta and oﬀer more unique diving experiences.
The topographical landscape makes horse riding an exciting way to discover Malta’s rugged countryside. Experience the breathtaking scenery with a private horseback tour or a personal horse drawn carriage ride. Each activity is one for the family to remember, but the coastline and sunset rides are particularly atmospheric.
The waters that lap onto the beaches of Malta are ideal for surfers and a little further out, you can enjoy windsurfing and parasailing. The Maltese coastline is the perfect backdrop for adventures that take place on speedboats and jet ski. Kayaking tours are offered in both Malta and Gozo for holidaymakers of all ages and abilities, ensuring everyone gets to explore the Archipelago’s coastline.
If you prefer to relax and take in the picturesque scenery, charter a yacht or a sailboat to explore the islands.
Hop on a Segway to discover more than 7,000 years of history on the Mediterranean archipelago. Tours are available in the cities of Valletta and Mdina, and in the rolling hills of the Dingli cliffs.
