Why Malta?

The Maltese archipelago consists of 3 islands, Malta, Gozo and Comino. Malta is the largest island and the cultural, commercial and administrative centre. Its capital city is Valletta, a city of palaces built by gentlemen for gentlemen (as described by Benjamin Disraeli a British prime minister). Gozo is the second largest island with a rather lay back environment, with its fishing, agriculture and crafts attracting tourism. Comino the smallest of the three islands is mainly uninhabited and has only one hotel. The archipelago has a population of over 400,000 inhabitants on an area of 316 sq Km. Malta is located within the latitude and longitude of :
35° 50 N, 14 º 35 E.


Although Maltese is the mother language, English is the second official language, with the majority of the population being able to communicate in English. Italian is also widely spoken in Malta and since tourism is one of Malta’s leading industry, the French, Spanish and German languages are gaining ground too.

Malta became a member of the European Union in 2004 and in 2008 adopted the Euro as its currency instead of the Maltese Lira. It is connected to the rest of the world with daily flights to major European cities by an International Airport in Luqa. Malta’s time zone is UTC/GMT + 1 hr.

With the superb weather conditions all year round Malta has a lot to offer. When visiting Malta one can enjoy the numerous attractive beaches found on the well indented shores that offer a unique experience to anyone visiting by yacht. Beside the creeks and rocky coves found on Malta’s coastline, sailing through the Grand Harbour, considered to be the most outstanding natural port in the world, can be an immense enjoyable experience to every sea enthusiast. Malta’s thriving night live, complete with more than 7,000 years of loaded history gives each visitor something to take back home with him.

With its mild winter, Malta offers fabulous conditions for the berthing of yachts during the cold European Winters in numerous protected marinas all over the country. Here one can find all kinds of marine engineering services, docks, supplies services and other services one might need.
