What's the temperature like in Malta during March?

The temperature is extremely stable in March with average highs of 16℃ and lows just 2℃ lower at 14℃. The UV index will be moderate at this time of year, so not something to worry about for the average person. However, if you're going to be outside for long periods it's worth wearing a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen and UV-blocking sunglasses. Remember that bright surfaces, such as water and sand increase UV exposure.

Does it rain in Malta during March?

On average, there will be 11 rainy days during the month, amounting to 27.5mm in total. That's much drier than we see in England during August, and therefore not something to be concerned about. There's a small chance that you'll catch a thunderstorm during your trip.

How warm is the sea in Malta during March?

The water around Malta is a bracing 15℃ during March and would be considered too cold for swimming. Those who are a bit more hardy or frequently swim in cooler open water might want to take a quick dip. A wetsuit would be advisable if you wish to spend longer than 5 minutes in the water.
