Practice a new workout

Whether you want to go running, practice calisthenics or even try that CrossFit class your friend keeps telling you about, there is a plethora of benefits to working out and what better day to try it! Exercise renders positive effects such as increased pain tolerance, athletic performance and even social bonding, beyond burning a few extra calories.

Go out clubbing

If you want to go all out or even maybe try changing your relationship status, hit up a few homies and hit the clubs for a no-holds-barred night out of music and revelry. With Malta being the undeniable party island it is, you’ll definitely have a few options to try out.
