What’s the weather like in Malta in August?
Malta’s a Mediterranean archipelago with some of the best weather in Europe. Sitting between Sicily and North Africa, August’s the hottest month of the year here which means you’ll get high temperatures, lots of sun and hardly any rain. You’ll be kept comfortable by the cooling effect of the sea and refreshing breezes, particularly when you’re on the coast. Hot winds can sometimes blow in from the Sahara Desert which can make temperatures much higher. Malta’s relatively flat so there’s not much difference in weather around the country.
The usual high in Malta is 32ºC in August which drops to 22ºC at night. With these temperatures, you won’t need much more than your swimwear, shorts and t-shirts. At 27ºC, the sea’s lovely for swimming, while humidity’s high. There’s 6mm of rain over a single day, and you can expect 13 hours of daylight with 11 hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high so be careful in the sun and remember to pack sun cream. The sun goes down after 8pm at the start of the month and gradually gets earlier.
