Malta is charming in autumn. Get out and enjoy the ‘golden hours’ during your sea vacation. This season is still sunny but much quieter than in summer. September is especially gentle and comfortable with the warm sea and inviting beaches. However, October and November can be quite rainy.
This season is a great time to enjoy the surrounding countryside or take a walking tour. Autumn in Malta is less crowded and cheaper than summer, especially when it comes to accommodation. Most museums will be free of charge or offer entrance at a lower fare. As to the sea, the water temperature is still as high as 30°C which makes a dip in the Mediterranean waters very comfortable. Don't forget about birding at this time, which traditionally is popular across the coast.
