August Newsletter

In Malta every day can be a Summer holiday!
Dear Parents,
Heatwaves, sibling squabbles and sandy car trunks- yep, it must be Summer! Many Maltese are by now used to being contacted by long-lost relatives during the high season, in search of free digs & an immersive experience. Playdates abound as friends with pools invite their children's schoolmates over for some fun in the sun. Alfresco eateries entice as no-one is keen to spend their time in a hot, sweaty kitchen.
For many expatriots now is the time to head homewards with their brood in an attempt to escape the suffocating weather. The majority of locals plan their getaway around mid-August- whether by sea to the neighbouring Aeolian Islands, with affordable flight options all over Europe or overland on caravans. Our sister islands of Gozo & Comino beckon for those who prefer to spend less time travelling and maximise on relaxation!
Discover the many interesting, fun (& often free!) events lined up around the Maltese Islands this August as we prioritise family fun.


Holiday entertainment is high on the agenda!


Make the most of Summer

Spolit for choice as we relish in the advantages of island life. Never more than half an hour from the refreshing Med, swimming is always first choice of free fun for families living locally!

Leave a packed beach bag in the car at all times, to ensure that you never miss out on spontaneity when the opportunity to meet like-minded friends and family arises.



Congratulations Margherita Vella Grech whose interesting outing suggestions have won her complimentary family tickets to watch Valletta Living History show at Embassy Cinemas!



Up, up and away for your annual Summer hol!

Beat your island fever fast
You may be forgiven for thinking that you are the last person left working as e-mails are returned with cheery 'out-of-office' replies, telephone calls are left unanswered and your commute becomes eerily shorter.

Thankfully there's no need to be left out of the loop- with more choice of economical options then ever to get away from it all(or take it all with you)!

In need of some time away from the kids? Many summer schools offer pro-rata flexible options for you to catch up with the mundane chores and household tasks without having to put up with moaning kids. For parents who both work outside of the home, subscriptions remain open for the state subsidised option- Klabb 3-16 , which is affordable and on your route.
