Malta's warm, crystal clear waters and natural bays and reefs make scuba diving here wonderful. All around the island there are dive sites, from wartime wrecks and labyrinthine caves to luminous coral reefs. Most of the principal resorts like St. Julians have diving schools and centres offering PADI courses, both for beginners and experienced divers.
Horse racing is Malta's top spectator sport, with meetings taking place every Sunday in May to October at the track in Marsa.
You can hire surfboards, sailing and yachts in St. Julians, Bugibba and Qawra. Scuba-diving is also available.
Golfers can find a good course at Marsa sports club.
