Vitist Malta is the public-facing arm of the Malta Tourism Authority. The Maltese Islands hold a colourful annual calendar of traditional seasonal events such as carnival and summer festas with nightlife to rival that of many European cities.  Every year, an eclectic blend of local and international events, entertainment and exhibitions take place.  Choose from classical and jazz to band and folk music, from theatre and opera to dance and Baroque festivals.   The Islands also play host to a variety of international events, sports championships and tournaments that provide something for everyone, from athletics to motosport.

 

Sports Tourism

Whatever the time of year you are in Malta, there are sure to be sporting events of some kind going on. With our fantastic climate and the dazzling blue sea surrounding the islands, one can organise, participate in and watch sports all year round. Malta has also become one of the most polpular venues in the Powerboat calendar, appreciated by participants and fans for its good climate and unique historic setting. The beautiful waters off our capital city of Valletta play host to some of the sport's most exciting races. Sea-farers should also not miss the Rolex Middle Sea Race - an offshore classic race which takes place in October. The race runs by incomparable scenery and is a true challenge to skippers and crews who have to be at their very best to cope with the often unprdictable and tough conditions.

If running is your thing, why not try out the Malta Marathon & Half Marathon, which usually take place in February or March? If you enjoy the thrill of the race but would rather be a spectator, horse racing takes place almost every weekend. Tennis is also a popular sport here, so you can easily find good courts with the Marasa Sports Club boasting 19 courts, seven of which are floodlit. Marsa also hosts the prestigious Royal Malta Golf Club, set up in 1888.

If you prefer looking up at the skies, the Malta International Airshow usually takes place in September. This is a fantastic, interesting day out for all the family.

If you are looking to organise an International Sporting Event with a difference, think Malta!
