This might be a great location if you're visiting Valletta only VERY briefly, or coming by boat / cruise ship. But if, like we were, you are staying in Valletta for a few days, there's no point visiting this waterfront plaza. It feels very modern,...More
Many lovely quality eateries situated in this beautifully preserved quayside site.
The historic warehouses are sympathetically converted into commercial developments which beautifully enhance the old architecture.
A pleasant set of renovated warehouses now provide places to eat and drink as well as some souvenir shops (and free bathrooms). Can be very busy when there are cruise ships in port and conversely some may not open if there are no liners.
Located right at the cruise terminal. Beautifully illuminated at night. Waterfront cafe's with a slow walking band playing lovely folk & other tunes. Impressive yachts of the rich are all berthed alongside (:
Malta is a big disappointment. It looks like a ruin all, the properties have no maintenance and lot of homeless injured cat everywhere. Lot of museum, old buildings, interesting places are closed without prior notice. Inspite of opening time available in the web invatations, closed....More

We used the standard ferry across to the Three Cities at €1.50 each, including the cost of the lift back up to the City Centre. We noticed the small boats near to the Grand Harbour ferry terminal but didn’t check the prices. The oars are only used for the final few meters to mooring up with outboard motors for the main journey. The tourist office should be able to provide more details (there is a small one near the main Triton Fountain gate into the city from the bus station.
If you are just talking about the Valetta Waterfront it is fairly smooth. If you want to go up to Valetta, the streets are narrow getting over to the lift that will take you up to the gardens and the actual city of Valetta.

I've been there twice on cruises and would encourage you yo be on deck to watch the ship pull into the port as it is great viewing the majestic ancient walls and historic buildings. Cruise ship is docked just at the base of Old Town. After you you leave the pier, walk a few blocks and take the Barrakka Lift (an elevator; cost 0.5 euro) up to the Old Town. At the elevators exit is the Upper Barrakka Gardens and Saluting Battery overlooking the entire city and port. Then walk a few blocks into Old Town to the St Johns Co Cathedral (self guided tour with audioguide). This is a must see as it is extremely ornate and is also the burial site of ancient crusaders. Then stroll the city and take in the sites. If you have time visit the Auberge de Castille which house the Governors Office and Parliament as well as a very interesting and historic Military Museum. You should be able to accomplish all this in 3-4 hours depending on how much time you have in port. Again the Cathedral is a must see and the biggest attraction in Malta. Enjoy
