Malta's climate is strongly inﬂuenced by the sea and is typical of the Mediterranean. The Islands have a very sunny climate with a daily average of ﬁve to six hours sunshine in mid-winter to around 12 hours in summer.
Winters are mild, with the occasional short chilly period brought about by the north and north-easterly winds from central Europe. Summers are hot, dry and very sunny. Day-time temperatures in summer are often mitigated by cooling sea breezes, but in spring and autumn, a very hot wind from Africa occasionally brings unseasonably high temperatures and humidity.
Annual rainfall is low, averaging 568mm a year, and the length of the dry season in summer is longer than in neighbouring Italy. Sea bathing is quite possible well in to the 'winter' months, and the peak beach season can last until late October.
