Property for sale in the South of Malta

When searching for a property in Malta many people favor the hustle and bustle of central or northern Malta. But if you’re looking to immerse yourself in a more traditional way of life, lead a more laid-back lifestyle, and reside in less developed surroundings then the south of Malta could be for you. The experienced real estate agents at Zanzi Homes have rounded up a number of reasons and things to consider when buying a property in the South of Malta

There are a total of 14 local councils based in the south of Malta all of which can be found here. Some areas are made up of smaller villages and each area offers its own unique way of life from the quaint fishing ports and accompanying seafood restaurants, to St. Peter’s Pool where summer days can be spent sunbathing and leaping from the cliffside. There’s something here for everyone. 


Benefits of buying property in the south of Malta

The South of Malta is relatively undeveloped when compared to the rest of the island. This means prices are often more affordable. However, in recent years the area has seen an increase in both modern developments and those looking to purchase holiday homes. This is a good sign that any investment made will offer a strong return in the long run. What better reason to buy property in the south of Malta? 

Compared to other much busier towns in the center of Malta like Birkirkara or Sliema, the lifestyle in the South of Malta is more rural, laid back and in tune with nature, you’ll find fewer of the problems that homeowners face in other parts of Malta such as parking and noise issues. You’ll also have some amazing walks, swimming locations and attractions on your doorstep meaning a healthy outdoor lifestyle are generally more accessible. 

Which areas are most popular?

Whilst the southern region as a whole continues to grow in popularity, Marsaxlokk, Marsaskala, and Birgu are the most popular areas for purchasing property in the south of Malta. Each offers something unique to its residents. 


Marsaskala is a bustling fishing village that, despite growing in popularity and having seen development over the past 20 years, has still managed to fully retain its charms and traditions. It has a rich history which is visible in the impressive St Thomas tower and a great selection of cafes, bars, and restaurants that cater to every need. 

Marsaskala also has superb transport links to the larger surrounding towns where you can find supermarkets and hospitals and if you want to escape into nature then Inwadar national park offers the perfect opportunity. If it’s swimming or sunbathing you enjoy then buying a property in Marsakala will provide you with St. Thomas Bay beach making it the perfect place for beach lovers to live.
