More about Malta

The Maltese Islands are the remains of a land bridge between Sicily and North Africa that divided the Mediterranean into two basins in the Late Tertiary and at times in the Pleistocene. Slightly inclined Tertiary coral and globigerine limestone predominate in the geological structure. The island of Malta rises like clods over a layer formed in the coral limestone from northeast to southwest (in Ta’Dmejrek 253 m above sea level) and drops steeply to the sea with a cliff coast. Karstification and water permeability of the soil characterize most of the island. Irrigation agriculture (pump irrigation, as there are no rivers and lakes) is concentrated on sink zones in the northwest near the groundwater. The lowland coast in the northeast and southeast is strongly divided by several bays (rias). The island of Gozo, separated from the island of Malta by a 5 km wide estuary in which the island of Comino lies, is a floe tilted slightly to the northeast and in the west, behind a 100 m high cliff coast, reaches 176 m above sea level; it is less karstified.

The islands have a typical Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild, humid winters. The mean temperatures range between 12 ° C in January and 25 ° C in July / August. The mean annual rainfall is 520 mm (strong fluctuations) with an early winter maximum; an average of 77 rainy days and six arid months (April to September). Strong winds often blow, especially in May and from mid-September to October the hot sirocco from the Sahara. Check behealthybytomorrow to see Malta Travel Guide.


The vegetation that emerged from the original hardwood forest, the garigue, a shrub made of milkweed, feather grass, thyme, lavender and others, has largely disappeared. Plants introduced by humans such as the carob tree, Aleppo pine, prickly pear, agave, oleander and olive tree determine the landscape.


The Maltese are a mixed Mediterranean people in which numerous conquerors and immigrants (especially Normans, Spaniards, Arabs, Italians, French, English) have risen. The Maltese language is based on Maghrebian Arabic, enhanced by Italian and Greek dialect forms. It is the only Semitic language to be written with Latin characters. In addition to English as the second official language, Italian is still widely used as a colloquial language.

With an average (2017) of 1,454 residents / km 2, Malta has a high population density. 96% of the population live in cities, including in Valletta, Birkirkara (Birchircara), Qormi, Sliema (tas-Sliema), Mosta and Hamrun (il-Ħamrun). The annual population growth is 0.26% (birth rate 1.0%; death rate 0.9%). The average age is 41.8 years and life expectancy is 80.5 years (men 78.1; women 83.0 years). Of the residents (2017) 15.0% are younger than 15 years, 19.6% are older than 65 years.

Overpopulation, unemployment and a low standard of living once led to heavy emigration (1911–40: 43,000 people, 1940–87: 152,300). Since 1988 return migration has predominated again. The migration rate (2017) is 2.0 per 1,000 residents. The proportion of foreign nationals is 11.8% (2017). Due to its proximity to Africa, Malta is a place of refuge for many African refugees; According to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), Malta was hosting 8,000 refugees at the end of 2017.


Malta is ideologically dominated by Christianity. The constitution (Article 2) defines the Catholic denomination as the state religion (“Religion of Malta”) and at the same time guarantees religious freedom (Article 40).

According to various sources, between 91% and 95% of the population belong to the Catholic Church; other Christian denominations such as Anglicans, Orthodox or Protestants, separate religious groups with reference to Christianity (Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses) and followers of non-Christian religions together make up less than 5% of the population. The Catholic Church – one of the traditional pillars of Maltese society – ecclesiastically forms the Archdiocese of Malta (Archbishopric: Valletta) with the Suffragan Diocese of Gozo (Bishopric: Victoria). As members of the Church of England, the Anglicans belong to the Diocese of Europe (cathedral seat: Gibraltar). Christianity found its way into Malta very early; a widespread tradition traces it back to the apostle Paul himself following Acts 27 f. (historically refuted by modern biblical studies).

The existence of a Jewish community is proven by graves as early as Roman times and by documents again from 1240. The small Islamic community is formed by v. a. the Arabs living in Malta.
