One thing you can be sure of when exploring the Maltese Islands is pristine azure waters. The sea is clean and clear, varies in hues of blue and green and is warm all year round.
Another thing the Maltese Islands can certainly boast of is its stunning coastline. From imposing rocky outcrops and caves to magnificent fortresses and quaint fishing villages with colourful boat houses and fishing boats dotting the bay, the scene is picture perfect time and time again.
Here’s a preview of what you could see if you explored Malta on a yacht.
