Harbours and marinas around Malta

MA1 Grand Harbour

A large and very safe harbour in all conditions with a new marina.

Location

Grand Harbour is the main commercial harbour of the island and one of the best and largest natural harbours in the world. Whereas in the past, few facilities existed for yachtsmen, the new and prestigious Grand Harbour Marina has opened, tucked into the old Naval victualling section of Vittoriosa, just East of Fort St Angelo, 1M SE inside the entrance of Grand Harbour.
