Plenty to see and do outdoors in Malta away from the tables!

If you like to mix your holidaying with your poker, then Malta is the perfect location. Set in the Mediterranean, the island experiences very mild weather – even late in the year. So, there’s always plenty to see outdoors all year round.

  • The Dingli Cliffs are famous for their jaw-dropping views
  • Blue-flagged beaches offer exceptional water quality with crystal-clear seas
  • Rock-climbing and caving are available for those with an adventurous spirit
  • Maltese culture is everywhere, with cultural centres, artisan villages and theatres

And if it’s nightlife you’re after, check out Valleta’s swanky wine and cocktail venues or head to the more party-minded sections in the lively city of St. Julian’s.
