Living in Malta
If you love culture, history, and excellent weather you’ll love living in Malta
Located about 50 miles south of Sicily in the Mediterranean, Malta is a small archipelago that boasts a Mediterranean climate, a top-ranked healthcare system, and an English-speaking population. Malta is also home to some of the world’s best diving and has been growing as a tourism destination year after year.
Popular destinations in Malta include the lively port city and capital of Valletta—home to ancient architecture, a bustling pedestrian shopping area, exceptionally good restaurants, and an international community.
Another expat-favorite is Sliema, just across the water from Valletta, where you’ll find a wealth of newly built property options. On the north shore of the main island, the seaside resort area around St. Paul’s Bay attracts its fair share of expats with its ocean-view promenades.
For those looking to get away from it all, the pretty, natural northern island of Gozo offers a slower pace of life; a range of quiet sea-view walking paths; rustic, Mediterranean landscapes; and fields of aromatic, wild thyme. And Gozo isn’t all tranquil nature. For those looking for a balance between tranquility and convenience, the island’s capital—Victoria—is a lively place with shopping, restaurants, health facilities, and just about anything else you might need.
Why Live in Malta?
For those who want to live in Europe, with easy air travel to cities like Rome and Paris, the ability to travel freely in the European Schengen (borderless) zone, and have access to high quality European healthcare—but who also want year-round sunshine and warm weather—Malta is a shoo-in. It boasts the warmest capital city in Europe and some of the best overall temperatures and overall sunshine-hours, too.
It’s also up-and-coming, with the EU currently funding a long list of restoration and growth projects, all of which are making the islands prettier, cleaner, more organized, and more attractive to tourists and residents.
Malta also has an extensive and affordable public bus and ferry system, so while many residents do choose to own a car, it isn’t essential.
