Family day out in Malta – Top 5

We lived in Malta for 6 years and enjoyed many beautiful days out with family and visitors!

Here we will list our top 5 family, child friendly days out.

1. Mellieha Beach was one of our favourite days out. IMG_5014

The beach is beautiful and very clean. It’s one of the most popular beaches in Malta and gets very busy in the Summer months but with over 300 days of sunshine, this beach is great in the winter months too. The water is shallow and safe to a fair way out so you don’t need to be too worried about the little ones. We would always take the food and snacks we liked and saved some extra pennies. We’d then treat ourselves to an ice cream or coffee.

TIP: Go early in the morning to find a good spot on the beach and avoid missing out on a parking space. Oh and don’t forget your sunscreen – it can be breezy by the sea but the sun is still very strong.

Price: The hire of a bed and umbrella is €7 and €12 at the weekends or public holidays. We always tried to take a picnic and water with us to start the day.

2. IMG_6632.JPGPlaymobil Malta. This is a great indoor play centre where Playmobil showcase all of their products. The kids can be entertained for hours. They also offer kids parties and have a great outdoors area with a huge pirate ship for the kids to explore.

The Playmobil is great for rainy days or if the heat is too much for you in the summer. There is a brilliant café / diner in the centre, which is great value for money.

Price: Adults € 1.20 Children € 2.40

3. BOV Adventure Park Malta based at the National Park of Malta. This park is bovap_IMG_2961massively popular and is suitable for all ages between 2 and 15 years old. There are different parks and areas for all children. In the summer months all of the areas have a light mist water spray to keep the air cool and all areas are UV cover protected to keep the little ones safe. There are also a few water features too if the kids (or adults) want to cool down. There is limited parking at the National Park, so ensure you avoid peak times and events that are happening at the National Park. There is a café on site which is reasonably prices, but there are limited healthy options on the menu.

Price: Free entry to the park and free for parking.

4. Bugibba Water Park is open from July until the end of September and is great fun for adults and children. It’s a free water park so don’t expect lavish rides. Children from the age of 2 can enter the park with a 20 minutes session at a time. During the Summer months the park is very busy. There is a café on site.

It’s a great, fun, free way to entertain the whole family and keep them cool in Summer.

Price: Free, 20 minutes sessions but you can go in as often as you like.

5. Malta’s National Aquarium opened in 2015. Spanning over 20,000 square meters and boasting 41 tanks, it’s great fun for the everyone and a very educational day out.

IMG_2684Based in the north side of the island in Qawra, the iconic building can be seen for miles. The aquarium has teaching sessions throughout the day and is great for escaping the hot weather or entertain the family on a rainy day.

There is also a delicious restaurant on-site which isn’t cheap but it never disappoints.

Price: €13.90 adults €7 per child, but you can get a discount if you book online and there are family and annual packages available.
