Located in the middle of the Mediterranean, Malta is a true paradise for anyone who is fortunate enough to go there. Previously under the rule of the United Kingdom, the island is now totally independent and considered the European Union’s smallest territory. Nevertheless, the primary language of Malta was English (and Maltese).
Malta is a small island paradise with just a few square kilometers of everything you could think of. You will enjoy swimming, fishing, relaxing along the beaches or exploring the many coves, visiting the local villages, admiring the stunning rocky shores or the mysterious temples, seeing beautiful architecture or historical sites, enjoying the local specialties and more.
For over 1000 years, Malta has been the center of marine activity in the Mediterranean.
Malta has been a fascinating island for many decades right at the Mediterranean crossroads. Ideal for a relaxing sailing holiday, you can sail around Malta and visit the Gozo, Comino and Cominotto islands, famous for their pristine beaches and caves. Peaceful, unspoiled Gozo has a picturesque harbor, Mgarr, and plenty of tranquil anchorages where you can swim in turquoise waters-certainly worth a visit.
Comino is perfect for swimming in the famous Blue Lagoon, providing excellent night anchoring shelter.
If you want a combination of city nightlife, historic buildings and very short desolate anchorages, then Malta is an excellent choice for a 5-7 day sailing break.
Take the opportunity to combine a yacht trip to the islands with ashore time to visit Malta’s historic sites, including the city of Mdina, whose history dates back some 4000 years. You could even visit Sicily on a two-week charter, 60 nm north of Gozo.
Malta consists of three main islands–Malta, Gozo, and Comino. The country is known primarily as a paradise of sun and sea, surrounded by clear blue waters and blessed with 300 days of sunshine a year. Malta is also described as an open-air museum with a dense, fascinating history and beautiful natural attractions, promising adventure and discovery at every nook and cranny. The Maltese, in fact, have a long nautical tradition dating back more than 2,500 years.
Malta remains a popular sailing destination for individual travelers, couples, and families looking to explore beautiful harbors, coastal caves, picturesque beaches, and above all, the beautiful open sea.
