In that case you will love Malta lovely restaurants great food have a look at Apartements in Sliema as it has a lovely long promonade with childrens playgrounds along it.Coffee shops like the Mint and lots of others with room for buggy and no stairs to climb.The Point shopping Mall is open and if you get an apartement you will be near the shops and supermarkets.You are on the main bus route and May will be ideal for the kids not too hot or cold.

WEATHER:

The weather in May should be lovely and warm with some hot days to enjoy under the sun and by the sea

RESORTS:

BUGGIBA/QAWAR/ST PAUL

This is a very popular region with theBrits. It is like home from home. By that I mean there are many bars and restaurants that are run by ex Brits. Along the Tourist Street you will come across endless of such bars and restaurant. Most would nightly entertainment.

The town also has a main bus station where you can get a bus anywhere in Malta. It is also full of hotel to suit all budget. Topaz, Seashells and Qawra Palace are just few hotels I would recommend. For top class there is the San Antonio hotel.

MELLIEHA

This town is further up north, and it knows for its beautiful beach which is the best in Malta. The town is much quiter than other towns, and night time is very much confined to the few bars and restaurants along the main street Oliver Borg. Pergola spa hotel and the Solano hotel are in town. By the bay you will have Mellieha bay hotel.

Nearby there is Popye Village which is a theme park geared towards family with young kids

Mellieha is also a gateway to Comino Island and Gozo. For Comino there are boats from the Jetty on the bay right in front the Mexican Restaurant on the beach. It takes to 45 minutes to get Comino and its beautiful blue Lagoon. For Gozo, there are buses to nearby Cirkewwa for the ferry across to Gozo.

VALLETTA/SLIEMA

These are two large bustling places. Plenty to do and see. Ideal for sightseeing, dining out and shopping

PACEVILLE/ ST JULIAN

Nightclubs and music. Full of teenagers and young people out clubbing particulary at night time

RABAT, MOSTA, M'DINA AND MARXSALOKK

These town are not sea resort (although the later is on the sea it is very much a fishing village). But for history and culture these are the places to visit.

WATERPARK:

There is a huge water park with slides and theme park on route between Qawra to St Julian. I don't know the exact name of the location, but it is very much visible from the bus. There is a bus stop right at the entrance of this park.

A FINAL RECOMMENDATION:

To make the most of Malta I would advise a 7 day bus pass which cost 12 euros. With that you will have the freedom to use any bus to anywhere and at anytime till 11:pm and as many time as you like within the 7 days. Malta is a small country and the average journey time by bus from town to town is 40 minutes.

Cheers

Cas

Once you're posting on the St Pauls Bay forum I am presuming you will be staying there. If not , have a look at the Malta forum and the Top Question 'Where to Stay'. ~There is another topic 'What to do' Also have a look at the Top Questions on this forum.

May will still not be swimming weather (unless you're quite hardy) but it SHOULD be warm enough for paddling . Many families with young children buy a small , cheap inflatable pool for them to play in. There is a popular children's Water Park in Bugibba but I doubt it will be open in May.

Regarding the Water Park - it's at Bahar ic-caghaq. On the bus route Bugibba/St Pauls bay to St Julians/Sliema.
