Malta is located 60 miles south of Sicily. You do not need a car to get around Malta because it is only 14 miles long and 8 miles wide. Malta has an enviable comfortable year-round climate, is packed with interesting sites and has plenty of quiet beaches. Motorhoming on Malta is not recommended although a ferry can be taken from Sicily to Malta.

Campsites, Motorhome Stopovers and Offsite-Parking in Malta (free wild camping)
The main campsite is adjacent to a nice bay at Mellieha in the far north of the island, www.maltacampsite.com Tel 00356 21521105. The campsite charges around €15 for a motorhome in winter including electricity. There is also a scout camp, http://campsite.scoutkeeper.net, which allows the public to stay. There are no Motorhome Stopovers on the island and Offsite-Parking is discouraged and difficult as there is a lack of suitable car parks. Water is in short supply on the island.

Driving your motorhome or campervan in Malta
The roads are narrow, dusty, potholed and congested (think central Naples). The Maltese are polite but reckless drivers, un-dented cars are the exception. The Maltese drive on the left (unless the right side has better shade). LPG autogas is not available.
