What’s the weather like in Malta in November?
Malta has some of Europe’s best weather, with things still nice and warm in November as autumn slowly turns into winter. Sitting between Sicily and the north coast of Africa, Malta has a Mediterranean climate with more rain at this time after the drier months.
The Mediterranean Sea will keep you cool in Malta, as opposed to the warm winds that can arrive from the Sahara Desert and make things really hot. With a highest point of just over 250m, Malta’s relatively flat, which means the weather’s pretty similar across the island. It’s also quite exposed, meaning it’s fairly windy, and winds are at their strongest in November.
The average high temperature during November is 21ºC, which is perfectly warm enough to relax on the beach or by the pool. Temperatures cool to 14ºC at night, so you should bring a warmer jumper for the evenings. The sea temperature’s around 22ºC, while humidity’s low and ranges from around 60% to 90%. November’s the wettest month of the year, with an average of 109mm over 13 rainy days, although this usually comes in short showers.
Malta’s one of the sunniest places in Europe, and has an average of ten hours of daylight with six hours of sunshine in November. You’ll have lots of time to lay in the sun, so make sure you’re using sun cream as UV levels will be moderate. Sunset’s around 5pm in November.
Things to Do
You’ll still have sunny weather for relaxing on the beach or by the pool, but November’s also ideal for exploring. Wander along the capital Valletta’s narrow streets and take in the lovely harbour views. The sea’s warm enough for you to enjoy some diving, or go surfing at northern Ghallis, Palm Beach or St Thomas. The cooler temperatures are great for visiting ancient sites such as the Ħagar Qim temple complex.
