Don’t limit yourself to swimming next time you’re at the beach. Assemble a group of friends and do some watersport. Whether it’s canoeing or kayaking, the fun is assured. 
 

9. Catch a movie 

 
It can get hot in summer and what better place to cool down in than at a movie theatre, under the blazing AC? Movies in Malta are released in English; so fear not, the language barrier won’t be a problem. Tickets go as cheap as €3 for second-runs and €5.50 for new releases.
 

10. Visit a sister island

 
Malta’s archipelago hosts 26 islands, of which 3 are major. Board a ferry towards one of Malta’s sister islands, all for under a tenner! A round trip to Comino costs €10 while one for Gozo is €4.65, to be exact.
