Where to Watch the Sunset in Malta

Picturesque spots to soak in the magic of a sunset in Malta

As pleased as we are that the sun makes a prolonged appearance for the days spent on a picturesque Mediterranean island, there’s nothing quite like the magic of its departure. As the sky turns from piercing blue to a spectrum of warming shades and the sun bows down out of sight, it’s the perfect time to come together with friends and family and admire nature’s spectacular light show.

Golden Bay

As sandy beaches go, this is one of Malta’s finest. The golden coastline and rocky hills make it a picturesque spot to spend the day, and the warm waters are shallow enough to entice families in for a dip. Bring your own barbecue along and settle down for a magical experience as the sun begins to set.

Dingli Cliffs

The unique vantage point of a cliff edge allows you to soak in the full scale of a place’s beauty and the same is true for time spent atop the Dingli Cliffs. Standing here you can survey the vast expanse of the Mediterranean Sea – interrupted only by the presence of Filfla island, a small uninhabited island that can be spotted in the distance.

Mdina

Mdina is a fortified medieval city perched at the top of a hill, that you enter via grand gates. Once inside the walls, you’ll be forgiven for feeling as though you’ve stepped back in time with the charming architecture and narrow passageways. The name of Malta’s ‘Silent City’ derives from the tranquillity found within its walls and that’s no different at sundown. Watching the sky turn orange form this extra special vicinity is something truly memorable.

Blue Lagoon

Along the west side of Comino, you’ll find the beautiful waters known as the ‘Blue Lagoon’. As the name suggests, the piercing blue waters are the biggest draw, pulling in boat loads of tourists to see the natural beauty for themselves. The midday sun is a magnet for sightseers and if you can hold off until the evening, you’ll find a little more room to sit and savour the island’s beauty. As well as the option of watching the sunset from the shore, there are sunset cruises that take to the sea as dusk falls.

Floriana

Just outside the capital of Valletta, you’ll come across Floriana – a city that’s also brimming with history and culture to be observed and adored. Here you’ll also discover an array of beautiful gardens that come into bloom come summertime. From this region you’ll be able to see picturesque Valletta basking in the golden sunlight as the day draws to a close.

Gozo

For a slower pace of life, Gozo is waiting. With stretching countryside, a rugged coastline and beautiful beaches, this island offers up natural beauty at its best. The village of Xlendi is the best location for the most spectacular sunset watching.
