Day 1 – Exploring Valletta

Make sure you fly in early to make the most of your first day in Malta! Head straight over to your accommodation in Valletta (options below) and get ready to explore the city.

Valletta is a hub of incredible architecture, pristine gardens, historical buildings, romantic narrow streets, and glorious food. Spending just one day here is a crime but you only have 4 days in Malta so let’s make sure you make the most of it!

if you only have 4 days in malta then you must have Valletta in your itinerary

There are 3 ways to truly make the most of this city in the time given;

  • Valletta Walking Tour – This incredibly highly-rated walking tour will take you around every single one of the best sights that Valletta has to offer in 3 hours. It is the best way to see Valletta’s history and culture in the shortest possible time. Check out the prices and reviews here!
  • Walking Food Tour – I think with my stomach and would rather find out the best places to eat and taste great examples of local food than go on a walking tour of the cities sights. This walking food tour also takes you around some of the city which gives you the confidence to take to the streets after the food tour has finished without a guide!
  • Do It By Yourself – Valletta is an amazing place to visit and explore by yourself. If you are looking to do 4 days in Malta on a budget then this is the option for you. Make sure to check out all the things to do in Valletta here for inspiration!
It is one of the most romantic cities to put into your 4 days in malta itinerary

I highly recommend that you just take your time with Valletta and spend the entire day here. There are loads of good restaurants in town and I couldn’t possibly recommend one of them above the others, however, try to go with a more traditional Maltese restaurant to make the most of your 4 days in Malta.

Day 2 – The Blue Lagoon

As you only have 4 days in Malta, the Blue Lagoon has to be at the top of the list in any itinerary. As day 2 is your first full day in Malta, make the most of this by jumping on one of the many boats traveling up to Comino island and spending the day relaxing in the beautiful Blue Lagoon.

The Blue Lagoon has to be visited in your 4 days in malta

I recommend you take this incredible catamaran up as it allows you to see the best swimming spots and sights that the little island has to offer. There are plenty of other ways to get up to the Blue Lagoon and other things to do on Comino other than swimming so check out our guide to the Blue Lagoon here for more information.

This should take the whole day and you will probably be pretty tired when you get back but, if you’re not then I recommend finishing the day at the Guadalupe boat bar to watch the sunset in Sliema Bay. You can check out the location and opening times on their Facebook here

Day 3 – Day By The Pool + Nightlife

Even though you only have 4 days in Malta, you can’t come on holiday without having at least one lazy day by the pool soaking up the rays whilst sipping on cocktails! Luckily there are loads of resorts in Malta that offer day passes to use their incredible facilities.

We have written an entire article about spending a day by the pool in Malta here which goes into much more detail so remember to check that out to help you make your decision.

Paceville is a hive of activity at night!

In the evening, head down to Paceville in St Julians to experience the best nightlife the country has to offer. There are bars and clubs that will appeal to anyone so don’t worry if you’re not too much of a partygoer, you’ll find something that you like! Check out this guide to nightlife in Malta for some more information.

Day 4 – Exploring Mdina

As this is the last day of your 4 days in Malta (and you may be feeling tired from the night before), I have chosen a nice relaxing final day that is flexible to work around the time of your departure.

In the morning, head down to the incredible fortress town of Mdina and walk around its stunning narrow streets. Mdina itself is home to around only 300 people but it attracts swaths of tourists that want to experience the beauty of the walls and views.

Mdina is well worth a visit during your 4 days in malta

If you have a particularly late flight then I recommend jumping on this Mdina and Rabat walking tour which will showcase the city better than you could possibly do on your own.

When you do finally make your way over to the airport, why don’t you treat yourself to one final luxury and book into the Lavalette departure lounge to end your trip in luxury?!

Getting Around In Malta

I highly recommend you hire a car whilst you are in Malta. Malta is so small that if you hire a vehicle the entire island will be at your fingertips. Public transport is quite good in malta but as you only have 4 days in Malta then you don’t want to waste time sitting on the bus.

When we hire vehicles abroad, we always use rentalcars.com – They are a rental car comparison site that helps get the best deal you can possibly get.
