Malta is a thriving summer destination. With long stretches of coastline and a near-tropical climate, it affords guests from all over the globe a beautiful and luscious spot to while away the hotter months. However, with average temperatures of around 30°C, it’s wise to find a few good spots to get out of the sun and spend some time cooling off. These four sites are all wonderful attractions that are great fun in their own right, but also fantastic ways to beat the heat.
Malta At War Museum
Malta was a pivotal and highly coveted region during the Second World War, due to its strategic position between Europe and Africa. The role of the country in the overall war effort is fascinating to any history lover. But, this museum also tells the sad tale of the hardships the Maltese people went through during this time.
One of the key attractions of this fascinating museum is the authentic air-raid shelter, which visitors can enter and explore. It’s a great way to get a real-feel of life in that time and makes this museum a perfect spot to take the kids when the sun gets too hot. It’s air-conditioned!
Splash & Fun Waterpark
There’s no better way to beat the heat than to get into the water and the Splash & Fun Waterpark offers one of the most exciting spots in the country to do just this. With a whole range of water slides, splash pools and wave tanks, there is fun for all the family at this vast and exciting center.
The park even runs specific events, such as the upcoming circus, which give the kids something to do while the moms and dads can sit back and relax in the deck-chair area.
Marion Mizzi Wellbeing Spa
If you’re traveling without children, by far one of the best ways to avoid the harsh summer rays is to spent some time pampering yourself in a luxury spa. The Marion Mizzi wellbeing Spa is located at the Radisson blu hotel and offers guests all the best in beauty therapy and relaxation services.
Advocating rejuvenation of the mind, body and soul, the complex offers everything, from indoor and outdoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, fitness center, sauna and massage and beauty treatments.
Jet Ski Hire
You don’t always have to escape the sun to beat the heat; sometimes your best option is simply embracing it. There are many great Jet Ski hire locations all across the archipelago of Malta, such as Yellow Fun Water Sports Co., and each provides a thrilling opportunity to skip out across the water and enjoy the surf.
They also offer many other exciting water activities, including self-drive motorboats, snorkeling and many unique thrill-seeking activities that all adrenaline junkies will love. Plus, whizzing across the water at high speeds is bound to ensure a nice cooling breeze!
Picking somewhere with a great climate is always essential when you go on vacation, but sometimes it’s also good to get out of the heat. These four options are all infinitely more exciting than just staying in your hotel room and are sure to make your holiday one to remember.
