1. Play a game of Boċċi

Reliving the classics is always a good time, and going on a boċċi date with your unsuspecting partner seems like a scene out of a Maltese rom-com film. Surround yourselves with typical Maltese characters who will tirelessly attempt to show you the ropes, sip on an ice-cold beer or piping hot te’ fit-tazza and compete amongst yourselves. Trust us, you’ll love it.

2. Check out SIP and PAINT

Art & wine; the two words could not be more compatible. Explore the depths of your creativity while tickling your tastebuds with a few sips of wine at SIP and PAINT; a unique concept which invites those in attendance to unleash their inner artist at a variety of locations across Malta. To top it all off, you’ll have a cute painting to take home just in case the date is a success.

3. Go on a VanCation

For couples who are split between their love for the great outdoors and hatred of creepy crawlies & tedious weather conditions, VanCation is the way to go. The state of the art pet-friendly camper van is the perfect romantic getaway for couples who want to spend some time in nature together whilst enjoying a unique experience unlike any other.

4. Catch a movie at Kixott

Exhibitions, films, books and premium cocktails; this Mosta bar embodies culture and is potentially one of Malta’s best kept secrets.
