A day on the island of Malta

Sailing into Malta you could see the heat in the air...
We ported in Valletta, Malta’s capital city. The newly restored “Valletta Waterfront” welcomed us once we disembarked.


The Azure Window is a 50 metre high rock arch in the Dwejra Point cliffs. The sea has worn a hole through a narrow headland forming "the window" called Tieqa in Maltese.

These little window balconies are everywhere in Malta.
The streets of Valletta, the city of the Knights.
Malta was the last port on this journey. Everything was packed and ready to return home to Sicily.

Your photos brings me my very good memories from my trip to Malta. We have been to Malta for two weeks, it was great travel. Greetings from Warsaw.

I'd like to go to Malta someday. My daughter went for her second last year at school trip for a week and she had a lot of adventures diving, cycling and what not but she decreed that the food they served at the hostel was awful.
