Sails up and anchors away for a unique view of Malta’s Grand Harbour

Sailing the Grand Harbour

Malta’s majestic Grand Harbour is one of the most spectacular ports in the world. A wide stretch of water separating the capital city of Valletta from the historic towns of Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua, the harbour has been a hive of activity for over two thousand years. With its imposing fortifications and vast panorama, Grand Harbour is Malta’s principal maritime gateway and a popular port-of-call for ships that are cruising the Med.

The Grand Harbour’s glory can be viewed from both land and sea, however opting for a sail through its calm waters is always the best way to embrace the beauty of this Majestic Harbour.

One of the most unexpected side benefits of sailing is to see the surprises that the island has in store when seen from the outside in. Valletta’s imposing bastions can be seen best from the sea. There are plenty of inlets, nooks, crannies, forts and fortifications that one would miss from land and that create a totally new outlook on the city and its history.

For a totally private, tailor-made experience of the Grand Harbour from the sea, you can opt for a leisure sailing trip on small sailing boats for 4 people with a skipper and a guide. Alternatively, you can opt to sail the boats yourself if you happen to be the sporty type.

If sailing is new to you, you can take the trip in the form of sailing lessons. Offered for small groups these are fun and challenging. Morning sailing lessons for ladies followed by prosecco and lunch on the water’s edge is a great idea for ladies accompanying their partners on business trips or the like. How about trying them out as a romantic activity for couples? These sailing trips can also take place early evening, at sunset as a pre – dinner activity.
