The South of Malta comes alive during the Maltese Summer, yet is otherwise is mostly undeveloped. The up side to this is that both locals and foreigners can easily enjoy the natural side of Malta, including our stunning coastline with runs along the majority of the South of Malta. Each village has become renowned for specific traits; Marsaxlokk is well-known as a fishing village and is, in fact, peppered with fish restaurants along the promenade; Dingli has become famous for its Dingli Cliffs, from which one can see panoramic sea views and the distant island of Filfla; meanwhile, Zurrieq is popular for its marine caves at Blue Grotto. The South of Malta is also home to the world’s oldest temples, found at Hagar Qim, including others found in Tarxien. Those visiting the South will be sure to pass by the Ghar Dalam caves in Birzebbuga which are over half a million years old.
Real estate in the South of Malta is known to be relatively cheaper when compared to other more popular areas of Malta, however new developments have been introduced and the area is becoming more popular – particularly for Summer homes. Recently, in order to incentivize foreigners to purchase in the South of Malta, the Government reduced the thresholds on property prices for those interested in taking up residence in Malta through the Global Residence Programme.
