Festa’s, Carnival and parades
. Malta always has some event taking place, particularly in the summer months. Nearly every weekend during the summer you will be close by to a festa where the town turns into a celebration of colour and joy. Large processions, floats and costumes grace the streets with a carnival atmosphere with fast food and local delicacy stalls offering local treats and sweets for everyone to enjoy. The Festa’s are great but there’s nothing like carnival day in Malta (although they celebrate for the whole week)!
Most children love the water and Malta has some of the cleanest and clearest shores. With a large number of beaches and resorts with ‘safe swimming
’ and lifeguards in attendance it’s great for the whole family to take a dip in the warm Mediterranean sea. Make the most of the crystal clear water and bring a snorkel!
Head to the Playmobil factory and Playmobil Fun Park. Let the children play in the Playmobil fun park with indoor and outdoor area’s with themed zones and Playmobil toys to keep the children entertained. Fun and learning activities include face painting and craft workshops.
