Msida or Imsida is a harbour town situated in the country of Malta. Malta is a Southern European country and the name of the largest island in an archipelago that is situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. The Maltese Archipelago is made up of three main islands: Malta, Gozo, and Comino. Filfla and Kemunett are very small islands that are also part of the country. Msida is located in Malta, the largest island in the group. The town is situated just west of capital of Valletta on the north east coast. These islands offer a warm Mediterranean climate with hot, dry, sunny summers and short, cool winters.

The University of Malta, the Giovanni Francesco Abela Junior College, and a State Nursing Home is situated in the town. The Mater Dei Hospital is located in the outskirts of Msida, and offers medical tourism. There are several areas in Msida that offer options for office space. There is also an important marina in Msida for boat moorage of yachts.
