We walked along here after leaving the Gardens via the lift to the waterfront. We were lucky to see a cruise ship leaving and then eating delicious pizza at Tal-Kaptan in a relaxing spot by the water.

As we had walked around Valleta's many interesting streets, we thought it would be a good idea to see the city from a different perspective; so one morning we chose a boat trip around the three harbours of which there are many trips on offer at the waterfront.

There is a good selection of restaurants here with a nice view of the marina but the infestation of flies everywhere completely ruins the experience. Just disgusting.

Several cafes and bars to check out the local food. Good views and worth the walk from the centre of Valletta

Very nice place, full of history and monuments. A lot of shos and nice places to eat. Great views. If you stay till sunset you can admire all monuments in a great light. You can also watch a lot of yachts and ships.

I have visited many sites on Malta that have been restored. This Waterfront is breathtaking - they have kept the character of the old warehouses while building an ultra modern quayside walk sprinkled with bars and restaurants. The result is brilliant.
