Wi-Fi waterside, if you trust your laptop so near!

There are Wi-Fi hot spots across Malta now, but not all are conducive to business meetings or quiet working. You can work in most hotel lobbies, for instance – but most expect you to buy a voucher. The list below includes locations we have used in the past to access wireless internet for free. We’ll keep it updated. Please include any others you are aware of in the comments section below and feel free to add info on coffees, snacks and other facilities that go with the Wi-Fi!

  1. Another great spot with wi-fi are all the Cafe Jubilee outlets in Gzira, Valletta (which i use regularly) and I believe the Gozo outlet in Victoria has too – just ask the waiters for the FREE passkey.

     
  2. I have also used free wi-fi here:

    Valletta – McDonald’s
    Valletta – Burger King (requires login, ask at the counter)
    Valletta – Cafe’ Jubilee (requires login, ask at the counter)
    Luqa – McDonald’s by the airport

     
  3. Thanks Steve, MaltaGirl, great to see the list expanded.

     
  4. There’s also Melita Coffee in Balzan and Misto in Sliema.

     
  5. Thanks Charlotte! More for our list!

     
  6. What about Mc Donalds In Gozo???!!!!

     
  7. Sitting in the gardens of Ballutta bay near Exiles. Go has put up free wifi access for the public – Well done Sliema local council!
    (Now get your act together and fix the roads and garbage colection…)

     
  8. Thanks Elaine and Joakim, we’ll keep updating the post!

     
  9. Meet N Eat near just outside University old gate has good free wireless(also great chicken ftiras).

     
  10. [...] kostenlose WLAN Hotspots auf Malta [...]

     
  11. St. James hospital in Sliema. In the lobby. Few restaurants in Marsascala too

     
  12. Le Bon Vivant restaurant in Marsascala

     
  13. Just yesterday I spotted a “Wi-Fi (filtered)” sign in B’Kara. I believe the gate leads to the Railway Track Garden.

     
  14. Thanks so much for the addition to our list. We’ll up date it. With luck, most of Malta’s public gardens will be Wi-Fi enabled before too long!

     
  15. Anybody know of hotspots in Zubbeg (one on Malta, not Gozo). Thanks in anticipation.

     
  16. Sorry, typing error. That should read Zebbug.

     
  17. Great information! Thanks.
    All McDonalds have free wifi – Luqa, Valletta, Bugibba, St George’ Bay, Spinola, B’kara, Sliema and Victoria Gozo

     
  18. Paul, Zebbug is the village/town next to mine and I can’t think of any hotspots there. These towns don’t have the kind of cafes that think Wi-Fi a plus or a crowd-puller! They aren’t tourist places, so locals just go to the bar for a beer etc. Not for hot-desking or a relaxed cappuccino while they wi-fi surf! Stick to making a trip to Sliema, St Julian’s, Valletta etc for wi-fi.

     
  19. Just back. Found a free hot spot at the cafe next to Upper Barrakka Gardens – Cafe Deux Baronnes. You need to ask for the password (and then interpret the writing!).
    Also, and I checked but did not use it, Limestone Heritage in Siggiewi have free wifi.

     
  20. Mark, thanks for these extra wi-fi spots. It’s amazing a tourist attraction like Limestone have wi-fi! Cheers…

     
  21. Which places are good about having electrical outlets to plug in?

     
  22. I think we’ll post your query on our Facebook page and see what comes back!

     
  23. You should add Saracino in Attard – they still offered free Wifi the last time I was there (about 3 weeks ago).

     
  24. Just noticing that in South of Malta like Kalkara, Zabbar and even Cottonera cities there are few wifi hotspots.I m very dissapointed.It s good to have wifi in these areas please.Thanks

     
  25. Yes, I agree that the South is less well served. I guess Birgu, being more equipped with restaurants and cafes that not only locals but also visitors use (del Borgo wine bar for eg) has better wi-fi coverage. Anyone know if the restaurants along the Birgu Waterfront have wi-fi? If you come across any in the South, do post them up here. Thanks for this useful point.

     
  26. Re: Kenneth’s reply last year (31st December ’09) was rightly spotted!
    Old Railway Station Garden (Gnien l-iStazzjon), B’Kara has free Wi-Fi, after it was revamped and made into a more child-safe play ground, they installed the free Wi-Fi facility (which can also be used if waiting for a bus to leave while in the terminus!!)

     
  27. Do you have to go into Mc Donald’s to acess the free wi fi or can you sit outside thanks kathleen

     
  28. I think you’ll have to test it out. Depends if they have a key you need to know. But, let’s face it, it’s really cheap to sit there an hour or more for the price of a regular Americano coffee!

     
  29. McDonalds outlets have open Wi-fi zones and do not require a password. If you don’t want to grab a cappuccino (actually quite good, at Mac Cafe’s) you can try and hover in the area around McDonald’s in the Plaza Centre in Sliema, and see what signal you pick up.

     
  30. Nice job ! thanks

     
  31. Hi Mosta has free wifi I think its located near the Mosta Church its called MCAfree

     
  32. 2 good sites on the waterfront, Valletta. The Hard Rock Cafe and the bar ‘Browns’ next door both have free wi fi. Recommended as good food and beer with very pleasant staff.

     
  33. in gozo you can find free wifi at the Imgarr terminal, Mac Donalds, Clock house Caffee in Rabat. In Marsalforn there are a lot of hot spots from the bars and restaurants in the area.

     
  34. George, great – thanks for this info, we’ll add it to the post above. Cheers!

     
  35. Yes, was over in Gozo at the weekend and visited a great little place in Victoria which I think is called the Clock House on Republic Street – super fast connection for browsing and great service too – just ask at the counter they’ll be happy to help.

     
  36. Does anyone in Malta know if there are Pay As You go Broadband dongles available to buy in Malta. Am coming for a month or two and intend to continue working as a freelance writer but cannot find any PAYG dongles available, any clues.

     
  37. Gary, have you looked at Vodafone Malta or go.com.mt the other main mobile company? Melita Cable hasn’t yet launched it’s dongle service as far as I know. I suggest you try to hook up to free wifi and enjoy working from the various cafes though as I heard dongles are expensive to use here. I found this link that might help: http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091118054559AADN8XB

    Also there is quite a bit of relatively up to date info here: http://www.britishexpat.com/expatforum/malta/viewtopic.php?t=10109

     
  38. Hi Elizabeth

    Thanks for that info, will take a look at the places you have suggested. I kind of just didn’t want to be spending a lot of time in Macdonalds or hotel lobbies using the wifi(although I dont really mind cafes, I don’t know if the owners would be happy with me spending hours Wifing it for research) but if it comes down to that then I may have to. Thanks for the expat link, will check that out.

    Garry

     
  39. Great resource! Thanks for compiling the list. Hopefully more entities will start offering free wi-fi spots.

     
  40. I love taking a coffee and browsing my iPad…Free WIFI is a dream. My fav spot is Cafe Porto in St Julians and The Clock House in Victoria, Gozo. Both are free to use and the coffee is fab!

     
  41. Does anyone know of any more WiFi access in Mellieha?

     
  42. I’ll post it up on our Facebook wall as someone might be able to help. Thanks for asking. We need to get the islands mapped in terms of WiFi!

     
  43. Hi all,everyone mentions free wi-fi in Malta but nobody mentions the danger it brings especially when using personal information like banking or shopping online, when I use any free wi-fi, first I’ll make sure I use a proxy server like TOR for surfing anonymous and be safe. happy surfing

     
  44. Is the above the latest update, please?
    I believe, cafe jubilee, gzira connects without requiring login these days…

    Thank you, all, for this team effort: working in teams produces positive energy
    if I can contribute in any way, pls do let me know…

    My main areas of knowledge are music & music education

    All the best,

  45. PEPPI’S IN TOWER ROAD,SLIEMA HAS FREE WIFI

     
  46. There’s free wifi in many places in Gozo, where I live at different times in the year. My favourite spot is the new Clock House cafe in Victoria. Wifi is free and fast, coffee is great and the guys and gals there are quick to help out with any tech issues too… Love my iPad but hopeless with technology….

     
  47. Any hotspots in the Naxxar/Mosta area?
    Thanks
    Anthony

     
  48. Just back – again. Found the following:

    Xemxija – Xemxija Cafe Lounge.
    Hagar Qim Temples Cafe
    Sliema: Cafe Cuba
    Sliema Point Tower: Surfside restaurant
    Captain Morgan boats also advertise free internet.

     
  49. The Corinthia Hotel in St George’s bay also has great free wifi and its beautifully air- conditioned in the summer!

     
  50. Just back from Malta; there is Wifi at the central bus station in Zejtun in the NEW WAVE kiosk as well as good food or drinks. Ask Sammy or his staff for the access code.

     
  51. Why isn’t there wi-fi access services in Marsaxlokk main square,such a popular location with tourists especially? Is it possible to have it there? So many tourists ask me to show them info on local sites but there’s no access.

     
  52. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation however I find this matter to be actually
    one thing that I believe I would never understand. It kind of feels
    too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m having a look ahead to your subsequent post, I will try to get the grasp of it!

     
  53. Luna Hotel lobby, near Mellieha harbour. Friendly staff, nice cup of tea, and free fast W-Fi. (more than the other 4* hotels there offer !!)

     
  54. Chaplins bar at Qawra, We 5 bar at Qawra and the Park Lane Aparthotel near Bugibba bus terminal all have free wifi ( ask for the passwords at each)

    The Red Lion pub had an open wifi last time we were there, but the signal was a bit erratic.

    The Cafe Royal in Victoria Gozo has open wifi, excellent cakes and cheap drinks !
