Malta

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 your to view every day from 9am-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, awarded the European City of Culture in 2018.

Main attractions to visit in the Capital City include;

St. John’s Cathedral
The Grandmasters Palace
Upper Barrakka Gardens (canon fire at 12 o’clock)
The Malta Experience – an award-winning show discovering 7,000 years of Maltese history

To concentrate on the cruising hot spots, we speak with Emma Cassar, Events & Marketing Manager at Grand Harbour Marina;

St. Julian’s Bay
Day 1

St. Julian’s Bay – this 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. St. George’s Bay – this is the destination of choice for those who wish to visit the infamous Corinthia Hotel – a great floating dock can easily lead guests to the hotel. There is an excellent cocktail bar and two highly recommended restaurants here called 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. A statue of Jesus followed by a Wreck Dive ‘The Imperial Eagle’ can be found here at depths between 20m-45m.
Enjoy sundowners with friends at the perfectly placed Café del Mar.

Selmun Bay
Day 2

Wake on the morning of day 2 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 it’s nice sandy bottom. For a bit more of a 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 – the go to place is Baia Beach Club, great for an afternoon cocktail or romantic sunset drink.

Malta - Comino - Luxury Charter Itinerary | C&N
Comino
Day 3 to 4

Comino Anchorages – 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 famously featured in the movie Count of Monte Kristo – in the evening have a movie night onboard and enjoy seeing the tower once again on screen.

Malta - Gozo - Luxury Charter Itinerary | C&N
Gozo
Day 5

A 3.5km sail to Gozo is a sure way to further experience the charm of Malta dropping anchor in San Blas & Ramla Bay – these two deep bays sit next to each other, are great in flat seas and quite deep. This makes for a perfect superyacht anchorage with not many people around so 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 wave runners. At the north of the entrance is ‘Il-Gebla Tal-General, which translates to ‘The Generals Rock’ – or better known as Fungus Rock. Once inside, one can anchor, very peacefully, in 5-7 metres of waters. Xlendi – this small port lends itself perfectly for a visit to "The Boathouse" where a delicious lunch awaits. Mgarr ix-xini – made famous when it featured in the Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie’s movie "By the Sea" is a unique and styled very casual restaurant with a full seafood and catch of the day menu adds a charm to anyone’s experience who visits.

Kantra Beach Club
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 Ta’ Cenc Hotel & Spa. Go for a swim and snorkel, followed by a massage and sunset drinks and dinner at the restaurant. The South West Coast of Malta & the South East Coast of Malta offer beautiful cruising 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 which all encapsulate the true Maltese spirit. Visit St. Peter’s Pool for uninterrupted swimming in natural pools. For an afternoon of culture, enjoy a stroll around the Mdina – the old Capital City. This part of Malta oozes "old-school-charm" and is quite possibly the prettiest part of the whole Island.
