Malta in December/January as honeymoon destination

We are coming up with a possible offbeat honeymoon destination. We would like to know how is Malta in around Xmas time ? What is the temperature like ? Does it rain in December/January ? We would like to do a lot of things like - exploring historical places, enjoying beach, churches and temples, nightlife, shopping. Does Malta offer everything ?

In Dec and Jan Malta offers everything on your list except guaranteed beach time. Daytime weather can be between 12 and 20 degrees with the chance of rain, sometimes long showers, together with sunny periods, with cooler temperatures at night. If beach time is important you might be better looking at the Canary Islands which will be warmer at that time of year.

Malta is a very populous island (Gozo far less so). I'm not sure it's that off beat here, hehe.

Malta has a thriving wedding sector so many opt to spend that special time here.

Winter brings mixed weather but often some warm sun. Lots to see here, if that floats your boat.

December and January Malta weather is mixed,but certainly not beach weather unless your very brave that is,weather rain,hail,cold winds or warm sun,

It does however tick most of your boxes apart from beach time,if the beach is important then as said the canaries may suit better or maybe somewhere further afield like Mexico or Cuba which are warm this time of year.

I have spent many winters in Malta and have had very mixed weather at that time of year.

Have to agree that the canary islands would be better if you want good weather .

Lanzarote is particularly nice !

Gran Canarias would be my choice at that time of year, Last year we had it 25- 29 C just before Christmas. We both came back with an excellent tan. Also the prices are cheaper in the Canaries .
