Strolling the Mediterranean: One Day in Malta

Streets of Valetta, a day in Malta

One day in Malta is not enough, but rather a day than nothing. This gem of an island, surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, is one of the locations at the top of my list,  that I would like to revisit. I only had the opportunity to see a little bit of the city, so for now have a look at these four areas I got to explore.


Eat breakfast at ‘U bistrot’


I started my day in St Julian’s Bay, with a breakfast at ‘U Bistrot’. This little side-walk café offers great views of the Maltese Baroque architecture mixed with the crystal clear waters of the bay.  An eggs Benedict accompanied with a strong coffee will fuel you up for the day ahead.

Monday to Friday: 10:00AM to 11:00PM

Saturday and Sunday: 09:00Am to 12:00AM 


Stroll the waterside at Msida Yacht Marina


We took a bus in the direction of Valetta, but got a little bit sidetracked by the beautiful views along the way. So we decided to jump off for some pictures of the boats at ‘Msida Yacht Marina’. My ‘travel buddy’ Andreea had the perfect look for pictures with the rows and rows of yachts. This area has a lot of small coffee shops for quick refreshment pit stops.



Eat gelato in Valetta


Valetta is probably the most visited spot in Malta. This tiny Capital in Malta is a UNESCO World Heritage site and consist of 19th century architecture, narrow streets and endless steps surrounded by a high wall. Stroll around cobbled streets, while enjoying a gelato, peep into shops and take in the breathtaking views of Malta beyond the walls.



Eat dinner in Spinola Bay


After soaking up the afternoon sun in Valetta, we decided on dinner in Spinola Bay (Easy to reach by bus). The entire bay is lined with restaurants creating a festive ambiance, with incredible views. We tried ‘Raffael’ for pizza and wine and walked away full and happy.
