Malta Shopping and nightlife

Shopping in Malta

Malta offers many handmade goods that make wonderful souvenirs. Mdina Glass has a long established history as a leading glass-blower and it is worthwhile paying a visit to the factory. Maltese gold and silver jewellery are of high quality as is the local filigree work. Pottery, handmade lace and embroidery are also worth looking out for. Leading fashion stores and boutiques are located in Sliema.

Shopping hours

Mon-Sat 0900-1900 (shops may sometimes close later in tourist resorts).

Nightlife in Malta

Malta's nightlife is centred around St Julian's, particularly Paceville and St Paul's Bay. There you will find many discos, bars and nightclubs to suit every age. High rollers can also try their luck in one of the casinos in St Julian's and St Paul's Bay.

The Manoel Theatre in Valletta is a delightful architectural gem and is reputed to be one of the oldest theatres in Europe. Concerts, opera and drama are regularly held.
