Valletta Waterfront, Valletta

4.4
Originally built in the 18th century as an area for stores and warehouses, Valletta Waterfront serves as a good place to grab a bite to eat, shop, and simply enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of Malta along its historic harbor. After heavy bombing during World War II, the waterfront's reconstruction has led to a mix of old architecture alongside modern improvements. Notice the thick walls that you walk along--meant to protect the city from invaders--as well as the different colored doors of the buildings, which once symbolized what kind of goods were stored within: yellow for wheat, green for produce, blue for fish, and red for wine. Watch the luxury yachts and large cruise ships drift in and out of the harbor. Take a harbor cruise to learn more about the area's history. Put Valletta Waterfront and other Valletta attractions into our Valletta attractions planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Nice place for eating out and soaking up the atmosphere, unfortunately in February only a few restaurants were open.
  • Nice place to be & socialise and good food as well.
  • It's a perfect place for a relaxing Sunday night. There are a large number of restaurants and the view is beautiful. On the flip side people who have a sensitive nose might be irritated by the smell of the boats. Most people don't smell it but a few others do. None the less this place is still definitely worth a visit.
  • The Valletta Waterfront is in the Great hurbour of Malta. Were one can find find fine dining and a great atmosphere!
  • Beautiful 18th century seafront rehabilitated for commercial purposes
