Sports And Leisure In Malta

The Maltese Islands have more shore and boat dive sites within its small radius than any other island or resort in the world. Natural harbours, beaches and small bays, sheltered creeks, cliffs and reefs offer an underwater world of paradise for divers and visitors. From ancient wrecks to Second World War sunken ships and planes to the natural beauty of the corals and sea bed. With annual average sea temperatures hovering around 18 degrees Celsius, and visibility around 30 meters, the Maltese waters are ideal for diving all the year round. Diving holidays have become more and more popular in recent years as more people discover the hidden secrets of the deep blue Mediterranean Sea around Malta’s coastline. Boat chartering and sailing are becoming more popular with locals and foreigners. Wind surfing, water skiing, jet skiing and paragliding are just some of the water sports that can be experienced here in Malta. Jeep safaris, trekking and walking are excellent ways to discover the little know gems and secrets hidden away within the Maltese countryside.
