But what else makes Malta special and unique?
Malta offers a rich Mediterranean lifestyle, as well as a vibrant night life to match. With 2019’s July recording almost 12 hours of sunshine per day, you can expect sunny weather throughout most of the year, and even during the colder months like November and December, the temperature rarely goes below 10 degrees.

Affordable Cost of Living
Prices vary across the Malta, and as with many European countries, the cost of living has risen over the years. Despite that, Malta still has a very good standard of living for a relatively low cost. Rent and bills are still quite affordable, especially compared to other countries, which means you get to save a good chunk of your paycheck and still be able to enjoy the Mediterranean life here on the island. Rent for one bedroom apartments is on average 750-900 euros, with bills for basic utilities and internet in the region of 50-100 euros. If you decide to share a 2 bedroom apartment your rent will decrease to 400-550 per person. The cost of apartments lowers a lot the further you move away from the Centre of the island.

Malta is an island that wears its mix of natural and human history proudly. Along the island, and indeed beyond to the rest of the archipelago, Comino and Gozo, you can see epic rock formations, hidden exotic beaches and country sides, and some of the oldest caves and temples made by humans, which still stand to this day. Whether you are a history buff or not, one cannot deny their beauty, and they, as well as the cities of Mdina, Valletta and Victoria (or Rabat), are so steeped in history that you just might get lost in them.
