MALTA INTERNATIONAL FOOD FESTIVAL
If you’re a discerning foodie, then this event should definitely be on your itinerary! The Malta International Food Festival is the island’s largest food event, happening between 13th and 17th July this year at the Valletta Tritoni Square, right outside City Gate. Tokens are purchased at the event and can be used to try dishes from various stalls together with drinks and high-quality wines. The event sees a multitude of cuisines under one roof and gives attendees the opportunity to chat with fellow gourmands, share passions and indulge in mouth-watering dishes from around the globe.
Boat tours are a plenty in Malta and being situated by the sea, there are a bunch to choose from in Sliema. Simply walk down to the Sliema Ferries, just a 5-minute walk away from AX The Palace and take your pick! There are tours that take you around the harbour, to neighbouring Valletta, and some even go all the way up to Gozo and Comino for the day.
YOUR CLASSIC BEACH BBQ
A summer in Malta isn’t complete without a beach BBQ. The rocky area along the Sliema coast can be used for gas and charcoal BBQs. Of course, respect the environment, the surroundings and those using the area after you and clean up properly. But other than that, grab your chairs, get cooking and watch the sun go down along the coast. And hey, perhaps even head in for a pre-BBQ swim! The perfect summer night if you ask us!
