Throughout the last decade, Malta’s presence and status in the yachting sphere has multiplied and the region is now known for its shipbuilding prowess, vibrant port cities and high class tourism infrastructure. This tiny island is the perfect yacht charter destination.
Discover Malta’s natural and manmade wonders
Malta sits in the heart of the Mediterranean, she is the stepping stone from the west to the east. Lagoons, caves and turquoise waters are just some of the characteristics of Malta’s surrounding ocean. Idyllic sea temperatures and much to explore ashore, don't miss out on all Malta has to offer.
Charter Highlights in Malta
We have selected three highlights for a charter in Malta so you can get a taste of what this fabulous charter destination has waiting for you.
01 Blue Grotto
Blue Grotto is one of the most idyllic natural sites in Malta. The natural beauty of the luminous blue waters is a vision which can seem almost other-worldly. The majesty of this sea cave has made it a popular destination for holiday-makers and also has been featured in many film productions.
02 Collapsed Azure Window
This now collapsed natural arch, is arguably as mesmerizing today, submerged underwater as it ever was. Scuba divers can dive deep next to the rocky coast to marvel at the limestone structure. It can be found in the northerly island of Gozo.
03 Malta’s capital- Valetta
Valetta, is a capital beaming with fine art and culture. The city’s decadent and expansive history is etched into the city’s walls. Fine architecture frames winding streets. This historic port has been a hub for sea merchants, sailors and nowadays it is a very popular yacht charter destination.
At BGYB we offer our clients bespoke itinerary for their charter holidays. Please contact us to receive your very own personalised charter itinerary.
Day 1 Valetta
Your cruise will begin in the large Valletta Grand Harbour, nestled at the foot of the fortress capital. Discover in the morning Valetta’s ancient cobbled streets, baroque palaces and dine at a restaurant alongside the opera theatres. In the late afternoon, be sure to take the 25-minute drive inland to the ancient capital of L-Imdina, known as “The Silent City”. This opulent white city stands on a hilltop like a Renaissance vision.
Day 2 Marsaxlokk Village
Take a morning cruise to a different side of Malta — one where the rugged cliffs of the coast flow into the crystal clear water, sea caves glimmer ethereal blue, and colourful fishing villages beckon from the shore. Visit the Marsaxlokk fishing village in the afternoon before returning to relax on board in the evening with a beautiful meal crafted by your chef.
Day 3 Gnejna Bay
More glorious cruising awaits you this morning as you make your way up the west coast of Malta. Relax on deck as your yacht makes its way to the famous Blue Grotto, where the light around lunchtime makes the sea cave glow a haunting blue. In the evening, head to the enchanting cove of Gnejna Bay. There a secluded anchorage is surrounded by limestone cliffs, creating the perfect spot for an elegant dinner under the stars as you listen to the waters.
Day 4 Blue Lagoon, Comino
This morning is filled with beach bliss: go for a swim and lounge either at Golden Beach or the quieter Paradise Bay. After a long, lazy lunch at anchor, the yacht will then make a short trip across to the island of Comino. Here lies the Blue Lagoon, one of most photographed lagoons in the Mediterranean, with its startlingly azure waters contrasting vividly with the limestone formations all around. Upon returning, get dressed up for cocktail soirée.
Day 5 Mgarr, Gozo
In the morning, the yacht will hop across to Gozo, the third island in the Maltese archipelago, a dreamy island where time seems to stand still. The first stop will be Mgarr Ix-Xini Cove, an idyllic little fjord lined with cliffs, a beach, and stone buildings at its end. After a delicious seafood lunch on board, the yacht will cruise to Mgarr Marina for the night, where you can dine either onshore at the Yacht Club or wander the waterfront.
Day 6 Gozo
Gozo, as second-largest island in the archipelago, is filled with innumerable activities to do. A must-see for divers and snorkelers is Dwerga, once the home of Malta’s iconic Azure Window. For those interested in history, Gozo also is home to the UNESCO-listed Ggantija temples, an ancient megalithic temple complex, known to be the oldest human structure in the world that still stands.
Day 7 Valetta
The yacht will depart early for the return to Valetta, perhaps stopping for a swim at St. Paul’s Bay, the place where St. Paul’s ship was believed to be wrecked. Advanced divers can also dive the Imperial Eagle Wreck and the Jesus statue on the seabed, rounding out an exceptional yacht charter in Malta.
