A tapestry of rich history: Malta


The town of Sliema was once a small fishing village but earned a reputation during the British period as a destination of choice for the upper class. It is now a thriving commercial town that is home to designer shopping outlets, galleries and restaurants. Drop anchor, walk the long promenade on the waterfront, and enjoy the hustle and bustle of this vibrant town. If you walk along the coastline until you hit the Surfside Restaurant you will be treated with stunning 180-degree views of the open sea while you enjoy a glass of something delicious.

The Grand Harbour 

The Grand Harbour, also known as the Port of Valletta, is one of the largest and deepest natural harbours in the world. Nestled between the walled city of Valletta and the historic Three Cities, it is the perfect place to enjoy stunning panoramic views and take in the incredible architecture of Valletta. If you want to head inland, the Upper Barrakka Gardens are the place to go to get incredible views across the Three Cities of Malta. Once you have enjoyed the beautiful gardens you can walk down into the city centre, wander the limestone streets, and enjoy some of the country’s best cuisine on Strait Street.

Golden Bay 

Golden Bay is located along unspoilt countryside in the north of the country. Thanks to its clear waters and golden sands, it is one of the most popular beaches in Malta. With an abundance of tourists, watersports and 5-star hotels and restaurants, this is the place to cruise to if you are looking for activity and excitement. Sit back and watch the throng of people from your yacht or head inland and take part in some horse trekking along the coast or enjoy a relaxing spa experience at one of the many luxury hotels.


Comino is a very small island midway between the islands of Malta and Gozo home to just a handful of farmers. The coastline is a treasure trove of deep caves, beautiful coves and beaches, and the crystal-clear waters of the famous Blue Lagoon. Drop anchor at the edge of the lagoon and you have the perfect spot for swimming, snorkelling and excellent shelter at night.


The second largest island in the Maltese archipelago, Gozo has a more rural feel, with a wealth of protected anchorages and an incredible history. The North-Western part of Gozo is Dwejra, home of the famous Azure Window which collapsed into the sea in 2017. You can dive down to see its remains or visit the Inland Sea lagoon and Blue Hole for some more swimming. Make sure you also visit the incredible Ġgantija Temples, two neolithic structures built entirely of limestone and officially recognised by UNESCO as the oldest freestanding buildings in the world at over 5,500 years old.

If you are looking for glorious sunshine, sparkling crystal-clear waters, stunning coastlines and cities steeped in history, then Malta is the perfect place to take your Fairline yacht and explore.
