6 days luxury yacht charter experience

Cruising from your home port at Camper & Nicholsons Grand Harbour Marina

Blessed with over 300 days of sunshine each year, the Maltese islands are ideal for year-round cruising and diving. However, there is plenty more of the country to discover once ashore.

Just a stones throw away from your berth at the iconic Camper & Nicholsons Grand Harbour Marina, you can see the world-heritage site of Fort St. Angelo, open for you to view every day from 9am to 6pm. A short walk along the marina promenade from the fort is Hammett’s Macina Restaurant which is open for breakfast, small tapas lunch and fine dining for dinner. Just across the marina base is the Capital City, Valletta, which was awarded the European City of Culture in 2018.

Main attractions to visit in the Capital City include:
  • St. John’s Cathedral
  • The Grandmaster's Palace
  • Upper Barrakka Gardens 
  • The Malta Experience – an award-winning show discovering 7,000 years of Maltese history

St. Julian’s Bay
Day 1
St. Julian’s Bay is a good bay to spend as an overnight anchorage. There are plenty of bars and restaurants easily accessible via tender. The clearest water can be found here and provides an excellent place for snorkelling and diving. There is a very scenic walk along the promenade from the bay to the neighbouring village of Silema. This is where you will find further beach bars and restaurants.

It is the destination of choice for those who wish to visit the infamous Corinthia Hotel - there is a great floating dock can easily lead guests to the hotel. Here, there is an excellent cocktail bar and two highly recommended restaurants, Buddhamann and Caviar & Bull St. Pauls Bay.

Depending on the swell, the best area is behind the island and anchoring close to the island shore makes for good swimming and snorkelling. If on a larger yacht, do not attempt to go through the islands but go around the islands instead. This area is great for anyone who enjoys some quiet time for keen divers. 

MV Imperial Eagle is a deep wreck dive off Qawra in north-eastern Malta.

You may also enjoy sundowners with friends at the perfectly placed Café del Mar.

Selmun Bay
Day 2
Wake up in the morning and have breakfast at anchor in Selmun Bay. Although there are no restaurants or sunbeds ashore, this secluded beach is a perfect anchorage due to its nice, sandy bottom.

For a bit more of the lively atmosphere, travel round to Mellieha Bay and have lunch ashore. This bay faces the north-east and is one of the largest beach destinations in Malta.

For the more active guests amongst the group, travel by jetski to visit the north part of the bay to view the caves. In the evening, we recommend Little Armier and Armier, two beautiful beaches perfect for an afternoon cocktail or romantic sunset drink.

Malta - Comino - Luxury Charter Itinerary | C&N
Day 3 to 4
Anchorages in Comino are a must-see on the itinerary.

Crystal Lagoon is one of the many anchorages to choose from. The sea is beautifully crystal clear and is only accessible by boat. One of the crew members can take you via tender for a tour of the caves at the end of the bay.

Although there aren’t many amenities or restaurants, it is great to take a walk near the tower, which was famously featured in the movie 'Count of Monte Kristo'. In the evening, have a movie night aboard and enjoy seeing the tower once again on screen.

Malta - Gozo - Luxury Charter Itinerary | C&N
Day 5
A 3.5km sail to Gozo is surely a way to further experience the charm of Malta.

Dropping anchor at San Blas and Ramla Bay, two deep bays that sit next to each other. This makes for a perfect superyacht anchorage with not many people around, so it is perfect for swimming and water sports.

Move onto Dwejra Bay, a tiny island measuring just 50m, which is an amazing diving area, sheltered and perfect for exploring with kayaks or WaveRunner. 

Xlendi is a small port, perfect for a visit to The Boathouse, where a delicious lunch awaits.

M?arr ix-Xini is another bay, made famous as it was featured in Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s movie "By the Sea".

Grottos / St. Peter’s Pool
Day 6
To enjoy a more exclusive experience, visit the Kantra Beach Club, set on the edge of the cliff. It forms part of the exceptional Hotel Ta' Cenc & Spa. Go for a swim and snorkel, followed by a massage or sunset drinks and dinner at the restaurant.

The south-western and south-eastern coasts of Malta offer beautiful cruising grounds that are relatively unspoilt and particularly quiet, especially in the summer shoulder months. Crystal-blue waters and divine grottos can be visited all year round. With the local fishing villages and sunday markets, offering delight in food and cuisine, culture and charm, all encapsulating the true Maltese spirit.

Visit St. Peter’s Pool for uninterrupted swimming in natural pools; or enjoy a stroll around Mdina, the old capital city, for an afternoon of culture. This part of Malta oozes old-school-charm and is quite possibly the prettiest part of the whole island.
