The fresh seafood is plentiful and includes bass, grouper, bream and mullet. Try the local dishes, such as Lampuki Pie made with fish, Kapunata ratatouille, a broad bean pate known as Bigilla and a pastry filled with ricotta. Weather Temperatures in Malta have a typically dry, Mediterranean climate, which gives a long sailing season. In the spring, temperatures are around 77ºF before peaking in the summer months around 87ºF on average. Even during fall, you can still enjoy warm days around 75ºF right up to mid-October. This destination has low rainfall, which peaks during late fall and winter. Sailing conditions in Malta offer an easy going charter with plenty of opportunities for sheltered bays and anchorages.
