The Maltese archipelago is an open-air museum, both on land and under the sea, where you can see the traces of its history. One of the most recommended activities in Malta is scuba diving. Its seabed is fascinating and the flora and fauna will amaze you as you explore the remains of ships from different eras.
The Mediterranean sea, in addition to having a delightful temperature, has clear waters and spectacular colours. On your way to the islands of Gozo and Comino, you will have the privilege of visiting the famous Blue Lagoon and Crystal Lagoon. The Blue Grotto and the Bay of St. Paul are also worth a visit from your boat rental in Malta! Comino has been used as a filming location for movies such as Troy and you now have the privilege of visiting it with your boat hire.
From the island of Malta, Gozo is located close by and highly worth visiting. In mythology, the island is said to be home to a cave where Odysseus stopped on his way to Ithaca. It is called Calypso's Cave. You can also visit the Ggantija temples, the oldest in the country, which were built between 3600 and 2500 BC. For a different kind of beach, Ramla Bay has striking red sand.
On the island of Malta, you'll find the Dingli cliff, 720 feet above sea level, where you can watch dazzling sunsets. In Valletta, the capital city, you will find fortresses and, above all, a vibrant nightlife. There are countless bars and restaurants for memorable evenings. In addition, the island often hosts electronic music festivals with international musicians. The best time to party in Malta is of course in the summer. The south of the island is quieter, as is Gozo, although both areas have a good range of places to eat and drink.
The island of Malta has a mild Mediterranean climate. The best time for a yacht rental in Malta is between April and October. The coldest months are January and February when the minimum temperature can drop to 10ºC. Summer is very hot, with temperatures sometimes exceeding 35ºC. This is also the time when most tourists flock to the island in search of its lively nightlife and beaches. The water temperature is very pleasant in spring and summer, which is one of the reasons why Malta is one of the most popular destinations for snorkellers. If you are looking for a sailing holiday in Malta, with sunny, swimmable temperatures but without the crowds, we highly recommend sailing here in April, May, October or November.
The archipelago hosts world-class ports. The large influx of tourists means that the infrastructure is very well maintained. The main port where you can charter yachts in Malta is Kalkara Marina in Valletta. You will also find boats for hire at Manoel Island Yacht Marina, Msida Yacht Marina or Mellieha Bay.
Malta is 57 miles from the Italian island of Sicily and 196 miles from the coast of North Africa. Nevertheless, the best way to reach the island is by air. Its only airport, Malta International Airport, is 5 miles from the Maltese capital. You can get cheap flights from all major European destinations.
