Avg Historical Daily Average

January is statistically the coldest month of the year in St Julians. But with average temperatures of 13°C, it would be very far-fetched to suggest that the climate is chilly.

In 1998 record highs of 24°C were reached within the town in January. And while daily highs are more likely to average around 15°C at this time of year, it is still wise to ensure you always have sun protection to hand.

The first month of the year is also one of the wettest months in this part of Malta. And while 90mm of rain are expected to fall throughout seventeen days of the month, short sharp showers are most common, which means any precipitation is quick to clear.

Even when the climate is at its coldest, average lows of 10°C make for a wonderful night time climate. Yet, with 10 hours of average daily sunshine in January, this month also offers some of the longest days St Julians has.

Record lows in the region at this time of year were experienced back in January 1993. But even then the temperature only just reached 0°C. So if you are looking for somewhere to wrap up warm and enjoy some snow, St Julians is not the place to come.

The volume of sun and incredible day time temperatures also mean the sea never has much of an opportunity to cool down around the island. Even in January sea temperatures are still a very balmy 28°C, which means anyone that wants to take a dip is in for a real treat.

With temperatures far warmer than even neighbouring Sicily, let alone those seen in the UK, the January climate in St Julians is bright, sunny and very welcoming.

Even if you have to dodge a few showers along the way, it is a great location to get away from the typical winter weather back home.

Where to Stay

If you want to stay in the centre of St Julians without paying premium prices, Rokna Hotel offers value for money no matter when you choose to visit.

And the level of cleanliness within the hotel is superb. Bus stops, shops, nightlife and restaurants are all close at hand, ensuring a fabulous spot to base any stay in the area.

Stay at the Pinto Guest House to enjoy sensational views whichever room you choose. Whether you look out over the sea or across the countryside, each of the 22 rooms has something to enjoy. Upgrade to accommodation with an en suite bathroom. Or choose to incorporate a sun terrace within your space to enjoy those long sunny January days. The friendly staff at Pinto Guest House will do everything possible to make sure you enjoy your stay.

The Residence St. Julians is the ideal place to stay when you want to get away from it all but still want to have fun with your friends. Though nowhere in St Julians is too busy in January, the Residence St. Julians offers a chance to get away from it all, but still with the amenities only a short walk away. Two big terraces in the central area offer the most beautiful outlook over the sea. While the private pool is the perfect place to cool off if the weather does get too warm. And if you find it a little chilly at night, the staff will even provider heaters to ensure you are always comfortable.  Aimed at 18-25 year olds, the Residence St Julians is a great place to stay.

Things to Do

While the weather is bright and the days are long, spend some time at Chaucer's Bookshop in the heart of the town. This delightful little shop is one of the many boutique retail outlets in St Julians that are the perfect place to find hidden treasures. Whether you want postcards to write to those freezing back home or to pick up a Maltese/English dictionary to improve your dialect. Stop for a coffee and enjoy the sun. It's a wonderful way to spend the day.

While Captain Morgan will be packed to the rafters when the peak season comes, the 'Spirit of Malta' boat trip has far more space in the low season of January. But that doesn't mean you can't still have a lot of fun. Take a dip in the warm sea waters as your Captain stops at the beautiful Blue Lagoon. Or enjoy the complimentary buffet and bar on board. Alternatively choose a pirate-adventure for the whole family to get involved. Or a romantic evening cruise for you and your loved one. A Captain Morgan boat trip is the perfect way to enjoy the beauty of the sea.
