7 days exploring Malta by superyacht

Valetta, Malta
Day 1

Valetta: Explore ancient Malta

The indented Mediterranean coastline of Malta, Gozo and Comino stretches for 200km offering a range of harbours and anchorages (depending on the prevailing wind) so that a visit here allows you to lazily cruise and explore the islands.

Whether visiting the islands with your own yacht or chartering a superyacht in Malta the area gives you a chance to explore ancient Europe while enjoying great diving and swimming in turquoise waters.

Day 1 — Valetta: Explore ancient Malta

Use your first day to explore the citadel of Valetta. This is good opportunity to do some shopping — most of the old town is pedestrianised, or perhaps take a horse and carriage ride to explore the sights. Further inland you can visit the ancient capital Mdina — known as the Silent City.

This ancient fortress is testament to Malta’s long and sometimes troubled history. The views are wonderful. St John’s Cathedral, built by the Knights Hospitaller is worth visiting: its treasures include Caravaggios, tapestries and ancient relics.

Malat’s Meglithic temples make the Knights’ building seem pretty modern — these monuments date back nearly 6000 years — they’re older than the pyramins and are thought to be the oldest free-standing structures on earth.
