Information and Tips on Rock Climbing in Malta
Our Rock Climbing Malta page provides an overview of what you can expect if you decide to try your hand at rock climbing while on your Malta holidays.
The Maltese islands have some great rock climbing opportunities of all styles, ranging from traditional, bouldering to deep water soloing, to name a few.
This should not really come as a surprise, since the islands’ coastline is full of dramatic cliffs. The Maltese islands also have many stretches of inland cliffs.
There are over 1300 established routes on the Maltese islands and many more still waiting to be discovered!
All this in just 316sq kms.
You can enjoy the sport the whole year round in Malta, because winter on the Maltese islands is mild when compared to other European countries.
Malta does not have any mountains but the variety of stunning climbs that the island offers is incredible!
Choose from single or multi-pitch sea cliff walls … or maybe sea level traversing … why not try deep water solos?
What could be more pleasant then taking a dip into crystal clear blue waters after a strenuous climb?
Over recent years, as Malta rock climbing increased in popularity among the locals and foreigners, there has also been an increase in operators that offer guided climbing excursions and equipment rental.
Some even have their own specialized guidebooks.

Some climbers say that it's Gozo and Comino that offer the best climbs.
