    Malta weather December


    What’s the weather like in Malta in December?

    Located between Sicily and the north coast of Africa, Malta’s got some of Europe’s best weather, which is still pleasant in December. Things are still mild due to the Mediterranean climate, which means holidays to Malta are ideal for winter breaks.

    Geographical influences

    The Mediterranean has a big impact on Malta’s weather, with breezes keeping you cool and temperatures finally falling below 20ºC after the long hot summer. The nearby Sahara Desert stops things from cooling down too much though, and sends the occasional hot wind and dust storm over. Malta’s fairly windy because it’s quite exposed and flat, with a highest point of just 250m.


    The average high temperature in December is 18ºC, which cools to 11ºC at night. It’s not exactly cold, but you should pack some warmer clothes if you're planning to explore all day or be out in the evening. The average sea temperature’s 19ºC, while humidity’s low and ranges from around 60% to 90%. Average rainfall’s 108mm across 16 rainy days, which usually comes in short showers.


    With one of Europe’s highest sunshine rates, you can still expect ten hours of daylight and five hours of sunshine in December. UV levels will be low, but you should still use cream if you're in the sun, which sets around 5pm every day.
