Fun, festive things to do at Christmas time around Malta and Gozo

Bring out the tinsel, find that Christmas jumper and meet family members it’s Christmas time! And just in case you’re lacking inspiration on ideas for fun, frivolous activities to dive into this festive season, we’ve made a list to get you started.

Check out a few Crib Exhibitions

Cribs are hugely traditional in Malta. Support the time and dedication taken to make these displays and turn up to marvel at their craftsmanship!

Go to a Christmas Market

There are a few of these dotted around the island, such as the Natalis Notabilis Market in Rabat. They make the perfect place to get your Secret Santa gifts.

Sip a hot chocolate under a village Christmas tree and gaze at Christmas lights.

Some villages really go to town with their Christmas decorations. For instance, Birzebbuga is known for their 7-storey high Christmas tree placed in the main square! Just like firework competitions, there is also a healthy amount of rivalry between towns for the best Christmas decorations. Book one of our roundtrip cars, take a road trip and see which will be your favourite!

Christmas shopping

Nothing beats the buzz and excitement of crowds searching for Christmas gifts. Christmas carols, lights and smiles. Why not join in? The atmosphere is infectious! (reference to Sliema and Valletta area)

Santa's village

One for the young and the young at heart; Popeye’s village turns into a Christmas wonderland in winter where you can enjoy a whole day of activities at Santa’s hometown with your family.

Give a helping hand at shelters
