Sailing Holidays in Malta
Malta has been the centre of seafaring activity in the Mediterranean for over 1000 years.
Malta is a fascinating island at the crossroads of the Mediterranean for many centuries. Ideal for a relaxed sailing holiday, you can sail round Malta and visit the islands of Gozo, Comino and Cominotto, renowned for their pristine beaches and caves. Gozo is full of character and charm and definitely worth a visit. Comino is excellent for swimming in the famous Blue Lagoon which provides excellent shelter for anchoring at night.
With the islands so close to Malta, you may want to combine a yacht charter with time ashore to visit the historic sights of Malta, including the historic town of Mdina. In two weeks you could extend your sailing holiday to visit Sicily, some 60nm north of Gozo.
For yacht charter in Malta the skipper must have RYA Day Skipper Practical certificate or RYA ICC qualification.
Ideal for a relaxed sailing holiday, you can sail round Malta and visit St Julian's Harbour, St Paul's island and the picture-perfect fishing harbour of Marsaxlokk on the south of the island. Sail to the islands of Gozo, Comino and Cominotto with their pristine beaches and caves. Gozo is the second biggest island full of character and charm. Use the marina at the picturesque harbour of Mgarr or anchor off one of the beaches. Quiet compared to Malta, Gozo definitely is worth a visit ashore. Comino is excellent for swimming in the famous Blue Lagoon which provides excellent shelter for anchoring at night. From here you can sail round the Maltese Islands returning for an evening dip in the pristine waters of the lagoon.
An itinerary around the Maltese islands is easy sailing but most nights you will on anchor in protected bays. A trip to Sicily includes a 60nm open passage so best for experienced skippers only. Experience level 1-3 depending on itinerary.
