Best Time To Visit: Malta is an excellent year-round destination, although November and December do experience some rain.
Key Cruising Areas: The islands of the archipelago offer a nice selection of modern marinas and many great anchorages and are an ideal place from which to venture to the Ionian Islands.
Don’t Miss: One of the top attractions of Malta, and something that cannot be missed, is the stunning Blue Grotto. The network of caves carved out by deep blue water now shimmers with the reflection of the sky and flashes of phosphorescence as you paddle through. A private yacht is perfect for visiting the grotto – head out early to make the most of the morning light, in which the waters shine with every shade of blue.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: Wander around the winding streets of the ancient capital of Valetta and you will find award-winning fine dining, delicious street food, and charming tavernas, as well as some appealing bars for later in the evening. For a taste of French haute cuisine with spectacular views of the island, book a table on the terrace at de Mondion, where the tasting menu of Chef Bonello promises to nourish the soul.
