The tiny five-island archipelago of Malta is an increasingly sought-after retirement destination among expats these days—and it’s no surprise why. Situated just 160 kilometres south of Sicily, the Mediterranean island offers an incredible charm, from its crystal-clear aquamarine waters to its stunning historic cities. But its aesthetic appeal is just the start.
Here are three reasons why Malta is a great place to retire:
Sun - Malta gets about 299 days of sunshine a year. Hot summers and mild winters generate a balmy average year round temperature of 19 degrees.
Sea - Malta has an average sea temperature of 22.2 degrees and many sandy beaches from which you can enjoy the warm waters. Also divers from around the world have just voted Malta the best diving in the Mediterranean and 3rd best in the world after the Red Sea and the Maldives in a recent online survey conducted by International Diver Magazine!!
Location - Malta is a great place to explore and travel from due to its perfect geographical location in the very heart of the Mediterranean Sea, with easy access from all major cities in Europe, North Africa and neighboring states. Plus the beautiful Islands of Sicily, Corsica, and Sardinia are just next door!
