Your Guide to Yacht Charter in Malta

Malta Yacht Charter

A Malta yacht charter holiday, be it powerboat or sailing yacht, will take your through years of history, openly displayed as part of the charm, from the moment you arrive in Valetta Harbor. With hot sunny weather, it’s a very popular tourist destination. Although Malta doesn’t have many beaches, when on board a charter yacht, you’ll be able to explore the island’s secluded coves and interesting bays. The water is very warm and clear with temperatures of around 26 degrees C in the summer, perfect for divers.

Malta, Comino and Gozo make up the Maltese archipelago. The islands lie between North Africa and Sicily where the western Med' meets the east.

There are lots of bars, restaurants and shops in Malta with some lively nightclubs in town. Mdina and Valetta are old citadels and well worth a visit. Valetta is more vibrant than Mdina with bars and pedestrianised shopping streets. Mdina is known as the Silent City where there are historical treasures and some Caravaggio paintings.

Gozo is an island which is part of Malta and is a sleepy island. It’s more popular with older travellers who enjoy the peace and quiet, lack of modern development including the old traditions. Many of the buildings are still made from natural stone instead of concrete, so Gozo has an atmosphere all of its own.

Comino is a small inhabited island with only four people living there. There is a hotel however many visitors just come for the day to dive in the famous Blue Lagoon. It’s fairly busy here from 10 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon. After this time if you’re chartering a yacht, you will have the place to yourself. Take a boat to the green Crystal Lagoon which is surrounded by steep cliffs, a touch of paradise on earth.

Valetta has a fantastic harbour entrance with fortresses and an ancient castle made from golden rock guarding it. It’s an awesome sight sailing into Valetta’s harbour and one you will never forget.

The past is mixed with the present in a passionate display of life. Wherever you go on the island of Malta, you'll find stunning architecture and scenery. Many people don't realize that Malta is more than just a historical gem; it's also an outstanding sailing yacht charter destination in the Mediterranean with warm sunshine and clear blue skies from April through to October. The Maltese Island of Malta, Gozo and Comino provide a charming cruising ground for your Malta sailing charter vacation.

Gozo, thought to be the legendary "Calypso’s Isle" of Homer’s Odyssey, is steeped in myth. It’s a peaceful, mystical backwater, with rugged landscape and spectacular coastline. Choose to pull into rocky inlets or red sand beaches. It's easy to entertain yourself during your sailing charter; snorkel, dive or fish. Gozo has some of the Mediterranean’s best dive spots.

Comino, which lies between Malta and Cozo, is another paradise for snorkelers, divers, windsurfers and walkers. The Isle’s Blue Lagoon, with its safe, turquoise waters, makes an idyllic day out on your power boat. The carefree lifestyle and perfect seclusion of Comino, makes it a superb anchorage by night.

The Malta yacht charter scene has become increasingly popular and the types of yacht charter available in the beautiful island include all the main types of yacht charter such as motor, sailing, skippered, crewed yachts, catamaran, power boat, sailboat, luxury yachts and the ever more familiar super yacht charter.

Like most of the Mediterranean, the Malta yacht chartering season generally runs from April to the end of October. The summer season in July and August is the hottest and tends to have lighter winds. This is also the high season as far as yacht charter goes. Other good times to charter your yacht is generally on either of the shoulder seasons (April-May and September-October), each side of the main summer season, as the temperatures are still comfortable, and the onshore tourists have yet to arrive in their largest numbers.

Malta is a truly unique and wonderful yacht charter area with impressive buildings and landscapes, superb coastlines and seascapes, and warm and friendly locals. I can’t wait to return.
