I'm going to go away for a week in march, and want somewhere that has fairly good weather. Malta seems ok, but i've heard that it's for retired people mainly! lol! I'm going away for my 30th birthday with my husband and leaving the kids at home with grandparents for the first time, we want to go somewhere thats not too lively and full of teenagers, but not too quiet either!
Anyone got any advice? If Malta might not be what we are looking for, does anyone have any ideas for us we're very unsure where to go coz we normally go on family holidays with the kids so this is all new to us
LOL so many questions!
Lots of info here on bars, clubs and restaurants all over Malta
I wouldn't go to Malta in March if I were you... Well, not if you're looking for a holiday in the sun, that is, as it won't be especially warm yet then. I am going to Malta myself in not too long, but opted for May as hopefully it will have warmed up a bit by then.
If you want a warm holiday in Europe during the 'colder' months I think the Canaries is the safest bet. I'd go to either Gran Canaria or Lanzarote, or possibly Tenerife. I did go to Fuerteventura this Xmas and did enjoy it, but it's always very windy there and that sort of made it a bit chilly whenever there was a bit of cloud - even though it was warm really... Gran Canaria is nice - can recommend Maspalomas and Puerto Rico...
Well, good luck choosing your holiday and enjoy yourselves away from the kids!
How about somewhere like Morocco or Tunisia? Should be warm (certainly warmer than Malta) - and a reasonable flight time
Have been going to Malta for many years and will be going twice this year. We fly out for a week on 14 Feb and will be there for a fortnight during August.
Going in February is the earliest we have been to Malta but have been twice during March previously. If it is the weather you are going for then I do support people who say that it's not that warm at this time of the year, but for us it's an ideal time to hire a car and explore. I have to say that nevertheless the weather in Malta is generally better than here in the UK.
I doubt if Tunisia is going to be that much hotter looking at the weather maps and I think you're still taking pot luck in March. If you want warm sunshine, this end of the year, then your best bet is the Canaries. We've been for a week in Feb previously and have had good weather, though it still rained for a couple of days. The flight time from the Midlands compared to Malta is about an extra hour but the cost of going there is much higher.
Hope this helps,
There are plenty of choices of accomodation, usually lots of good offers available and in the main resort (naama bay) lots of restaurants, shops etc , the resort is about 15 mins transfer from the airport.
We always stay at St Julians, a very busy resort but doesn't affect us we have a young daughter so are not looking for late night life but it is there if you want it.
We have found that the prices have gone up considerably over the last couple of years and eating out is quite expensive for what you are eating. Pizzas and Pastas are not cheap.
We do enjoy Malta and will definitely return when the prices come down a bit.
I went to Tunisia in early March and it was hot, dry and sunny, sun bathed every day, maybe we were just lucky.
