At Responsible Travel, we think the best people to advise our travelers are often... other travelers. They always return from our tours with packing tips, weather reports, ideas about what to do - and opinions about what not to.
We have selected some of the most useful Malta vacation advice that our guests have provided over the years to help you make the very most of your vacation - and the space inside your camera bag.
“Make sure you bring good shoes for walking because you will want to walk a lot on this beautiful island and it is hilly! Also by a buscard/ticket up at the bus station in Victoria and try all the bus lines all over the beautiful island.” – Lena Lidberg, on vacation in Gozo
“Do your dive training before you go. The scenery is too good to spend it studying or watching training videos. You learn loads just through practice so get the study out of the way first and enjoy the diving.” – Austin Flather, diving vacation on Gozo
“Do hire a car as Gozo has so many lovely places to visit (though the bus service is very good). Don't plan to be out every night as the farmhouse has amazing views from the roof terrace, and you'll want to see at least one sunset from there. We were self catering so bought all our food from local supermarkets, with as much locally sourced veg as possible. We also drank wine from Gozo and Malta, where possible (some good, some not-so-good). We were there in June, which seemed a perfect time as the temperature was still below 30 degrees and it wasn't too crowded.” – Sarah Shrubb, Ghammar self catering accommodation in Gozo
