Sea Kayaking in the Mediterranean

Sea kayaking in Malta and Gozo is one of the best ways to experience the natural beauty of the Maltese Island’s coastline. Gemmed with gorgeous caves, breathtaking cliffs and crystal blue waters, the Islands offer hours of paddling fun along its shores.

The Grand Harbour also grants access to kayaks to explore the majestic beauties of the capital city Valletta and the Three Cities with its harbours full of old building and busy life.

Exploring the islands on kayak is an activity that can be done almost all year round, especially in the harbours. Many kayaking clubs offer the equipment for rent or a guided excursion of your choice.

Experience a paddle in the Grand Harbour either early in the morning or at sunset.

Find some time to paddle off Mistra Bay towards Mellieha.

Tackle the Southern part of the island by paddling between Ghar Lapsi and Wied iz-Zurrieq.

Avoid sandy beaches as these are typically crowded and may be noisy.

For the real enthusiasts, do not miss the National Regattas on 31st March and on 8th September – both held in the Grand Harbour


Malta & Gozo – Exploring the islands’ coastline

There are many ways to explore the islands of Malta and Gozo. You may choose to use public transport, or hire a chauffeur. You may rent a car, or even a mountain bike. You can walk in the streets of old villages and cities. However, one of the most fascinating ways to explore the archipelago is by boat.

With over 200km of coastline, the islands offer spectacular cliffs and secluded bays and beaches. Opt for one of the numerous boat tours in the Grand Harbour (Valletta and Three Cities), or for a day’s tour around the main island. You may also choose to visit the Blue Grotto in Zurrieq on a traditional Maltese boat, or head North to the island of Comino where the crystal blue waters of the Blue Lagoon awaits you. Gozo offers gorgeous rock formations and eroded cliffs and can also be reached with an organised boat tour.

An alternative is to enjoy the Mediterranean sea by hiring a yacht and a skipper for the day to explore the beautiful coast and our clean blue waters.
