Grand Harbour Marina, Valetta, Malta

Malta is much sought after as a home port, charter yacht base or winter stopover.

Camper & Nicholsons Grand Harbour Marina, is an established cruising destination for visiting yachts throughout the season and this luxury marina, situated in one of the worlds lasrgest, deepest natural harbours, on the east coast of Malta, is perfect for those sailing and cruising the Mediterranean. The marina provides five star facilities and service as expected from the renowned Camper & Nicholsons Marinas.

With berthing for yachts and superyachts up to 100m, Grand Harbour Marina’s luxury facilities easily match those of the Cote d’Azur. Superbly serviced, sheltered and secure, it offers unrivalled views, a stunning setting and access to Malta’s historic capital.

The city has been a busy maritime centre since the Knights of St John in 1530 and as you would expect is steeped in history and culture.

Bars, restaurants, supermarkets and shops are to be found just a short walk away in the town of Vittoriosa or visitors can try the famous Casino di Venezia. The island also offers plenty of shoreside activities for crew and guests including an18 hole golf course and diving as well as theme parks and events.

There are regular ferry services to Salerno, Genoa and Tunisia and a high speed ferry to Sicily. The international airport is only a 15 minute drive away and has connections to most European cities.

The Approach

As you approach Valletta the large sprawling city is easy to identify with St. Elmo’s lighthouse on the eastern end of the breakwater. Leave this to starboard, and the short breakwater off Fort Ricasoli to port. Then round the impressive Fort St Angelo to port to enter the final approach channel, marked with small red and green buoys.

The harbour is very busy and because of the volume of commercial traffic yachts should contact Valletta Port Control on channel 12 when twelve miles out. As you approach the entrance commercial traffic has priority. VPC will usually ask you to call again about 1 NM off the breakwater.

Contact Grand Harbour Marina on channel 13 for berthing instructions


Yachts arriving from other ports in the EU must provide the Customs Office with vessel registration details and a crew list (on a form that can be provided by the marina office).

Yachts arriving from outside the EU will have to clear through customs and immigration and usually undergo a yacht inspection.

All yachts need to provide proof of third party insurance.

If any passengers or crew will be leaving the yacht in Malta and departing the island by another means, they will need to have their passport stamped by Immigration on arrival.

All visitors to Grand Harbour Marina will need to fill in a Berthing Licence at the Capitainerie.
