Malta is a wonderful family-friendly destination all year round, but the spring season offers a unique charm and adventure for families. With cooler temperatures, fewer tourists, and plenty of indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy, Malta in winter is the perfect destination for families looking to escape. 

In this article, we’ll take a closer look at some tips for travelling with a family as well as the top family-friendly attractions and activities in Malta during the spring season. From exploring ancient ruins and museums to enjoying outdoor adventures and beach visits, there’s something for all ages in Malta. 

Tips for Travelling with Family

Visiting Malta with your family can be great fun with the right planning. Here are some tips to help make your family trip enjoyable and stress-free:


  • Where to Stay: Look for places to stay that are great for children. Many hotels in Malta have special rooms for families, clubs for children, and things that children will like. You can also think about renting an apartment or a farmhouse if you want more room and the freedom to do things your way.
  • Getting Around: The bus schedule is different in spring, with fewer buses, so keep that in mind. Renting a car might be easier for families. It lets you travel wherever you want, whenever you want.
  • Eating Out: Food in Maltese restaurants tends to veer towards Italian cuisine, so plenty of pasta and pizza. Check restaurants for children’s menus and high chairs. Remember, some places might close early or even not operate during the week, so check ahead. 
  • What to Pack: Bring layers for the children because the weather can change. Make sure to pack waterproof jackets, comfortable shoes for walking, hats, sunscreen, and sunglasses. Also, bring any essential childcare items, as specific brands might not be readily available.
  • Healthcare: Malta has good healthcare facilities. However, it’s advisable to carry a basic first aid kit and any regular medications for children. Pharmacies are widely available for any additional needs.
  • Rest Times: Plan for downtime. Travelling can be tiring, especially for younger children, so make sure to plan some quiet time every day so everyone can rest.
  • Family Discounts: Look for discounts for families when you go to places or use transportation. Many places offer reduced prices for children or family packages. 
  • Fun Activities: Plan different things to do, both inside and outside, depending on the weather. Get older children involved in choosing activities or places to see.

Travelling with family can be an exciting and enriching experience, and with a little planning, it can be stress-free too. When visiting Malta with your family during the winter season, it’s important to keep in mind the tips we’ve discussed. From choosing family-friendly accommodations to packing appropriate clothing and planning for downtime, these tips can help ensure that your family trip to Malta is enjoyable and memorable for everyone.
