Excellent sailing areas can be found in and around Malta, with it´s two inhabited sister islands called Cozo and Comino, and the smaller uninhabited islands St. Paul’s Islands, Fungus Rock, Filfla and Cominotto.
The Mediterranean archipelago between Sicily and Africa with 140 km of coastline is an almost ideal place to charter a yacht. Sailing in Malta is exceedingly popular and some gently back and forth swinging masts in the Mediterranean winds are not uncommon. If you are approaching the island from the sea, the capital city of Malta – Valletta – can´t be overlooked, due to the mighty fortress.
Malta is a round the year sailing area for boaters who love the subtropical dry and temperate climate. The island is characterized by the contrast between the north-east and south part – superb cliffs and at the same time a level at which the land merges with the water. Between the rocks, which rise abruptly from the sea you can sail again along the secluded, sheltered and beautiful bays and the crystal clear water reminds you to the Caribbean. Many bays and inlets are not accessible by foot. Thus, even sailing in these areas in the middle of summer is very quiet.
A cruise on Malta also offers the opportunity to make a trip to Sicily or to sail to France, Greece and Croatia. One of the most spectacular harbours in the Mediterranean is the Grand Harbour in Malta, with the imposing walls of the capital Valetta on the north side.
Other ports are Marsamxett Harbour and Msida Marina and Marsascala. At the west of Malta, along the coast, you find many beautiful anchor places, such as Paradise Bay Anchor Bay, Golden Bay and Gneja Bay.
Boaters should definitely sail with their yacht to the island of Comino, which lies between Malta and Gozo. The Blue Lagoon with its shimmering turquoise waters and white sand is one of the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean.
And you should not miss another trip to the island of Gozo – an oasis of peace.
