There is something spectacularly special when you’re exploring the Maltese Islands by boat.
The Maltese Islands are known for beautiful bays and beaches. Not only should you be mesmerised by their beauty, but Malta also ranks very high in Europe with having some of the cleanest beaches. A few beaches are also blue flag certified which means that these beaches maintain a certain standard when it comes to sustainable development, safety, and environmental management.
Although exploring Malta on land is beyond beautiful, there is something special about getting familiar with the Maltese Islands by boat. Boatcare are the experts in organising your experience at sea and when booking your yacht/boat charter with Boatcare, you will surely have the best experience from beginning to end, using only the best approved boat options, while being given the technical and honest advice needed to make the best out of exploring the must-see bays in Malta, Comino and Gozo.
Blue Lagoon, Comino
Blue Lagoon in Comino is always at the top of everyone’s list when it comes to must-see bays in Malta, Comino and Gozo. Blue Lagoon is one of the top places to drop anchor and take a swim in the excellent azure, crystal clear water. You can only reach Blue Lagoon by boat but once you have arrived, you can easily swim to shore to explore the two white sand beaches. Snorkelling is also very popular here due to the clarity of the turquoise water and the presence of numerous caves under the sea.
Located close to Selmun Palace, nearby Mellieha, Imgiebah Bay is not easy to get to by foot. Of course, this will not be a problem if you charter a yacht/boat. The bay is a small and sandy one, surrounded by a rocky shore. It is one of the few bays that has not been touched by man and it is very quiet and peaceful here. A perfect bay to enjoy lunch and/or an afternoon calm dip.
Some of the best scenery will be found here at Ghajn Tuffieha. This beach is a popular one with tourists which means that it can get pretty crowded on the shore. It is a good thing you will have your boat charter as you can enjoy the panoramic views and clean water, all from the comfort of your boat vessel. However, if you do wish to swim to land, this beach offers the perfect balance of nature and man-made facilities.
St. Peter’s Pool
Located in the south of Malta, St. Peter’s Pool is a pool-shaped bay in Marsaxlokk. It is quite a secluded beach so getting there by boat is definitely more comfortable. The water is crystal clear here, so it makes it the perfect bay for snorkelling and exploring the under-water elements.
Dwejra Bay, Gozo
Dwejra Bay in Gozo is a top attraction when visiting Malta’s sister island. Before its destruction, this was the location in which the Azure Window could be visited. However, even after its demolition, Dwejra Bay continued to be a popular tourist attraction, even when visiting the island by boat. The bay is perfect for anchoring and exploring the deep sea by snorkelling. Dwejra is also surrounded by high cliffs which will give your yacht/boat protection from most wind angles.
Gnejna Bay is a local favourite, and it is located on the west coast of Malta. The bay is sandy but also has a rocky part. It has become a go-to beach for many, which means that the bay can get pretty crowded during the summer months. Anchoring your boat here will give you the flexibility of enjoying the bay in peace and quiet. It is also a very family-friendly beach.
These are some of the must-see bays in Malta, Comino and Gozo. These, and so many more, are easy to explore on the Maltese Islands if you have a boat/yacht charter. The islands will simply give you a different feel when visiting it on a boat!
