Malta: 5 budget tips

public transp

Ready to discover 5 budget options that will help you enjoy a holiday in Malta without spending a fortune?

1 – Public transportation ( I don’t mean the boat in the picture 🙂  )

Malta has a valid bus service that will bring you almost everywhere in this small island. Fares are cheap, 1 week ticket is 6,50€ and 1 day ticket is only 1,50€

Where the bus can’t arrive, use your legs, Malta is perfect for a healthy walk and hike. Check the website for more info.



2- Hostel Malti

Since the very first minute you will walk-in this beautiful hostel you will feel at home. Chris and Aaron (the owners) are kind and helpful, they will explain in details all you can do in Malta.

Location is perfect, it’s situated in the active S. Julien zone, with pubs, clubs and restaurants.

There is a lovely terrace with a jacuzzi (!!!) where relax after a long day under the sun and all the equipment to organize a BBQ with other guests of the hostel. You will never feel lonely or bored at Hostel Malti, there is always someone to talk with, often pub crawls, party and nights out are organized too.

greenwalk 3 – walking /hiking tours

Malta Green Walk is a brand new project run by two funny guys that will help you discover the beauties of the island.

Small groups are organized and leaded to the best to see spots. Do not lose the opportunity to be guided around the island by someone who know it.

The sunset at Dingli cliffs was an incredible experience! Contact them via fb or email:


pastizzi 4- Pastizz

You can’t say that you have been in Malta without trying the local street-food specialty.

Pastizzi is a salty pie, filled with different ingredients. You can find them at pastizzeria (bakery shops).

I have tried it with spinach, smashed peas, cheese, tuna and tomato, meat… Pastizzi are yummy and cheap (usually less than 1 € each). Very good is also the fried date cookie, mquaret.

maltasea 5 – Sea and Sun

Enjoy the incredible mild weather of this mediterranean island (ranked as the best climate in the world, according to many statistics). Summer is hot and sunny, winter has a mild climate.

Take your time to explore the beaches and the bays of the island: Golden bay, Mellieha bay, St. Paul’s bay, Peter’s pool, Paradise bay and so on.

A day trip to Gozo island is also highly recommended. I dind’t make it, cause I’ll most probably go back to Malta very soon 🙂
