A nice area to explore with an interesting marina and great views of this historic city. Do visit the Malta at War museum and also Fort St. Angelo whilst on Birgu as both are very interesting (See my other reviews). Walking Birgu's streets is also a very pleasant experience if you like to explore.

The waterfront is really nice with various restaurants at reasonable prices. We used the little colourful boats to take us to Valletta on several occasions which are family run and have been serving visitors for many years including the British Navy and our very own King Charles as a child. 2 euro a trip well worth it.

When you are walking in Birgu - one of the areas of interest is the waterfront.
It is a nice promenade - where you can find terraces , bars, restaurants but also some of the attractions from Birgu, the St. Lawrence church, the Maritime museum - closed when we were visiting - Fort San Angelo towards the Grand Harbor ...
So if you are looking for a place to stroll in Birgu - this can be one of those place where you can do it .
Also from the waterfront you can take the water-taxi to Valletta or a trip to see the Grand Harbor and the 3 Cities.
Definitely a place to check out when you are in Birgu

Visually striking with all the yachts moored in the harbour, and the light relfecting off the buildings from adjoining Isla. A very relaxing place to stroll along on your way to Fort St Angelo.

What a beautiful little place ! We arrived in Malta early morning and it was warm... rejoice !! Decided to take a taxi as Birgu only 15 mins away .... Didn't go quite as planned (Top tip alert... When you arrive at Malta airport, don't go straight outside to pick up a taxi, you have to go to the taxi booth, just next to the exit, and book & pay for your taxi upfront, you will be given a ticket with a number...only then go outside and the drivers will call out your number ) Taxis have to be booked, you can't pick them up off the street. We finally got our taxi but he had no idea where the apartment was ( or the street !) And we was dropped in the middle of Birgu to find our own way.
We stayed at a lovely private apartment called Harbour View and it was great.
Birgu had some great restaurants ( try Cargo) and being on the waterfront is stunning but please do try some bars and restaurants in the main square as they are just as nice and lots cheaper.
Go to Valletta...its incredible but take the water taxi ( not the small boats) as when you get there you have a free pass up the lift to the old town of Valletta ( the lift is essential as it's 300 steps to the top ) and be prepared to walk up and down steep streets ... Valletta is not flat !! But it is so worth it. Fort St Angelo is a must if you are either a History Buff, a Forces Veteran ( or serving) or a Game of Thrones fan.... it covers all 3 and has some amazing views, be aware though...you have to climb quite a lot of steps to get to reception.
Did we find the sun ? Oh yes and then some !! We basked in 27° and although it went a little cooler at night it was still warm... watch for those Mozzies though ( remember your on the waterfront).
A wonderful trip... would I go again? Try and stop me x

Get a city map and take a leisurely walk along this beautiful waterfront. There are a lot of interesting buildings and sites to see and the sea breeze will definitely make the walk very pleasant.

A very nice place with restaurants and fort saint Angelo to visit. Lots of yachts and sailing boats to look at, a pleasant walk or jog to have. There are lots of canons and train part to see and take pictures with. The scene is really spectacular as you can see most of the grand harbour and valletta, it's a piece of history. Always a nice visit. Just a small note maybe if some refurbishment is done on the public restrooms will complete the place 😊

My wife and I took one of the little 'Luzzu' style boats from Valletta to Vittoriosa, it was a nice short boat trip, only six of us on it plus the boatman. Cost was 2 euros each.
Just after the boat 'docked' and we got off, we spotted a 'Road Train' which offered a tour of Vittoriosa, Senglea, Cospicua and Kalkara for 8 euros each. We did the tour which was interesting and had live commentary. The Road Train dropped us off again at the pick-up point back in Vittoriosa around 40 minutes later after the tour.
We popped across the road to a café and had cold drinks which we sat outside to drink.
We then walked a bit further along Vittoriosa Waterfront, and just to be different, took a ferry back to Valletta, cost 1 euro and 50 cents each.
All in all, a great and interesting day out.
Vittoriosa Waterfront is very scenic.

Just when you think you've seen everything you need to see in Valetta, this is a must. The streets are quiet, the views are magnificent and cafes a plenty.
