If you are thinking about activities in Malta in May, then you should not worry. The month of May, as summer is approaching and the level of water temperature is rising, will be a great month to visit the best beaches of Malta. You will not have to worry still about too high temperatures but the sun is going to be strong that most sensitive skin must be covered with sunscreen. Mostly all the outdoor activities are possible to do during this month but let us mention the main events of May in Malta.

Please note that the events of May most likely will not be taking place due to COVID19.
