What is the weather, the water temperature and the rest in Malta in late October?
Subtropical Mediterranean climate, which features Malta, makes an inappropriate assumption that there can be uncomfortable in some of the seasons: the change of one season, another comes, and each with its own charm.

However, if you keep in mind that in Central Russia it is the first snow, the weather in Malta is truly a Paradise.

Should I go?
About the shortcomings of the October holiday in Malta can only speak in the case if the person wanted the entire holiday lain in the hot sun on the beach – and that's not happened: the sea is not like fresh milk, the temperature is not as high as we would like. Disappointments will not be if to prepare for the trip in advance and learn more about the features (including climatic) of the places where you plan to visit.
Of advantages should be called a comfortable temperature, allowing for a few hours a day on the beach and a good tan by the end of the stay, the possibility of diving, Windsurfing and other water typessports.
The October weather is ideal for those interested in rock climbing, likes excursions, sightseeing (and there are Malta very much).
By the way, holidaymakers at this time becomes smaller, leaving young people (continuing education work), so tourists of middle age becomes more comfortable.
In Malta in autumn, you can improve your health: the centers of thalassotherapy uses the healing properties of seawater and algae treatments (including aging) that are most useful in the absence of summer heat.
Also important is the financial aspect - in the middle of autumn trip (travel services, hotel booking, tickets) will cost cheaper, than in the summer.
What clothes to take?
In October a light bag, unfortunately, never goes away. In the suitcase must be things for the beach (swimsuits, trunks, shawls to protect from the sun hats, sandals, cotton skirts, shorts, pants) and for excursions, day trips, Hiking in the mountains (track pants, sneakers or comfortable boots, jackets, long sleeve shirts, sweaters).
Even if you don't consider yourself athletic, comfortable clothing for cool evenings, it is necessary to take care of. It can be wool pants, cardigans, jumpers, closed shoes.
What to do this month?
Every day in October in Malta can bring new experiences. Diversity – one of the mottos of the holiday at this time of year.
Beach vacation - can you swim?
If someone is not satisfied with the sea temperature of +22-23 degrees (for many Russians it is appropriate), then spending time on the beach until the last few days of the month and go home with a terrific tan.
Sandy beaches are colored: white, pink, red, gold. There are also stony and pebble, they prefer lovers of secluded relaxation.
However, in Malta, and so does not apply the trouble with many of the resort – there are many kilometers of crowded beaches, but most of the available flying the Blue flag, confirming the purity and safety of coastal waters.

It is impossible to ignore the capital Valletta is recognized as one of the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean. What I see here:

Take the time to walk – you will meet wonderful nature and Medieval traces at every step: FORTS, old streets, cathedrals. By the way, the last in Malta – 365 pieces, and one of the most famous, the Cathedral of St. John in Valletta, there is a picture painted by famous Italian painter Michelangelo Caravaggio.
One of the important reasons for visiting Malta is its unusual architecture, harmoniously combined with incredible sea views. Read in this articlewhat attractions you can visit on the island.

They were constructed of huge boulders, and inside structures have been discovered such wonders as turned to stone skeletons of dwarf elephants.
In addition Malta offers tourists the island of Gozo with the citadel, preserved from the XVI century, cathedrals, windmills and stunning views of the coastal caves with clear water to reveal to man the fascinating world of corals.
