Activities for Youth
The Maltese islands are small, but there is plenty to keep even the most active young adult busy. There are many water sports activities on offer – from windsurfing to sea-kayaking and jet-skiing. The more adventurous can try diving, water-skiing, wakeboarding, or paragliding; while other watersports, including water polo, yachting and sailing, canoeing and fishing, are also available. Malta also caters for regular outdoor sports ranging from football, golf, tennis and horse riding to archery, rugby, cricket and handball.
