Luxury Yacht Charter Destination

Known as the ‘Islands of Sunshine and History’, the Republic of Malta is made up of several islands and is an area just under 100km south of Sicily in the Mediterranean. The three main islands in the Maltese archipelago are Malta, Gozo and Comino. They offer a luxury charter destination that is generally less busy than other Mediterranean islands.

The main island of Malta is only 246 square kilometres (95 square miles) and is easy to visit as part of a short yacht charter. Malta is often underrated as a yacht charter destination, but it actually has huge appeal with vivid fortified towns, off-the-beaten-path beaches, beautiful Baroque architecture, colourful traditional festivals, premium vineyards and prehistoric sites. For an extended trip, add in a visit to the less populated islands of Comino or Gozo. 

Valletta, Malta’s capital city, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is easy to explore by foot with pedestrianised streets and lots of historical attractions. The pattern of intersecting streets allows breezes to pass between the buildings, making it unusually pleasant to wander around even in the height of summer.

Directly across Valletta’s Grand Harbour, you will find Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua, which are collectively known as the Three Cities of Malta. They contain some of the most historically significant buildings in Malta and the interesting Malta Maritime Museum can be found in Vittoriosa.

Due to its strategic location between Italy and North Africa, Malta has been ruled by many powers including the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Aragonese, the Knights of St. John, French and the British. The different rulers have influenced Maltese culture and its architectural construction, but none more so than the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem who ruled the islands from 1530 for over two and a half centuries. The Knights’ architectural feats are evidenced all over the island, they were influential in building palaces, churches, fortifications and hospitals.

Fine cuisine is a prerequisite aboard a luxury yacht. To keep the momentum going ashore, we recommend you to venture to Mdina, a medieval city in the northern side of Malta, which has many notable places to eat, with a taste of the traditional Stuffat tal-Qarnit.

On the island of Gozo, the secluded beach of M?arr ix-Xini is a perfect spot for an afternoon swim, or take a dip in the clear waters at Hondoq ir-Rummien. In every port, you would see brightly-painted luzzu, which is Maltese fishing boats . Diving enthusiasts can enjoy Malta's many dive sites, from the shelf drops of the Inland Sea, to the wreck of the Um El-Faroud Wreck near Blue Grotto and the Crystal Lagoon in Comino, which can only be reached by boat. 

Malta is a land steeped in history and mystery, with a mix of fine dining and rustic cuisines, castles and museums, pristine beaches and crystalline waters. The best way to discover its hidden secrets is from aboard a luxury superyacht.
