Marsaxlokk, Malta
Day 2

Valetta to Island Bay / Marsaxlokk

Leaving the harbour of Valetta behind, you’ll pass between brooding castles and fortifications before you reach the open sea. If conditions allow you can drop anchor at Marsascala — this small bay is home to a picturesque fishing village.

This is a good chance to head ashore and discover the southern part of Malta, the least touched by modern mass tourism. Finally, you’ll settle in at Island Bay. There are some beautiful anchoring spots, and there is a natural rock arch. If the wind is from the Northwest you may tuck into Marsaxlokk instead…
