Sports in Malta

Outdoor sports are really the name of the game in Malta. Waterpolo is a favourite in Malta and Gozo with clubs in most resorts and a competitive league, it does make for a great afternoon by the pool. The Maltese do have a passion for football and plenty of bars showing mainly Italian and English games. 

The Water is ingrained into Maltese life so as you may expect, there are plenty of watersports for you to try out when in Malta or Gozo. You are sure to find all the normal watersports you see in most coastal holiday spots with water skiing, kayaking, jet skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, sailing and paragliding available and fun rides for the children.
Continuing with the water theme, diving is amazing with the shores around Malta providing great visability and various dives including reefs, shipwrecks and caves. Malta & Gozo are multi award winners when in comes to diving!

You can charter a Yacht and head out or just explore the coastline in greater details. Fishing trips are widely available with an array of fish from sardines to snappers and swordfish. Tuna can also be found here, however, a permit is required. Remember and ensure you only fish on a catch and release basis.
Walking and Cycling in Malta 
In the heat of summer I am not sure we would recommend these activities but in the cooler autumn, winter and spring months cycling in Malta and walking in Malta really is a treat. Cycling is becoming more and more popular in recent years in Malta & Gozo with plenty of routres to choose from and bike hire readily available. For the walkers and ramblers out there, i cannot think of a better place to be and Malta has become increasingly popular with walking groups.
If you like to test out your hadicap in Malta then head to the Royal Malta Golf Club located a short distance away from the main resorts of Sliema & Valletta. After a round of Golf you may head to the coast, particually Valletta, which holds a number of sailing competitions and regatta's - the Rolex Middle sea Race takes place in Malta every October.
