So here I am, a South African expat, happily living a comfortable new lifestyle in Sliema, Malta’s most vibrant city for shopping, fine dining and water sports (  Of course, the fact that most of the charming locals speak English, has been a huge help. The weather is fabulous too – typically Mediterranean – mild winters and hot, sun-drenched summers.

Now that I know the ropes and have established all the right connections, I am in a position to assist other South Africans to make the move to Malta, easily and painlessly.

With my help, many of my family, friends and acquaintances already have, or are seriously considering, making the move to magical Malta too.  Some are investing in the lucrative, strong property market here, while others are exploring various business and employment opportunities.  Then, there are those who simply seek a tranquil retirement haven, or holiday home, in the sun.

Malta’s alluring attributes are endless, giving it the enviable reputation for being one of the best places to live in the world – for people of all ages. The country is relatively crime-free and politically stable, with a thriving economy, advantageous tax structure and world-class health system. The Maltese also take pride in their excellent education facilities. The legendary University of Malta  ( can trace its origins all the way back to 1592. There are some 11,500 students in attendance including 750 international students from 82 different countries.

The scenic Maltese archipelago lies virtually at the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, 93 km south of the Italian island of Sicily. Its convenient location makes Malta an ideal gateway to Europe, for holidays or business travellers.

So, why not make Malta your next holiday destination? You could take the opportunity to investigate its myriad opportunities on offer. We could arrange to meet when I visit South Africa again in October this year.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
