Most of the population and businesses in Malta are based on the east side of the island around Valletta.
There are several marinas around here and plenty of businesses in the area, including quite a few independent restaurants/bars. Lots of people commute into Valletta by getting the regular ferry service which runs across the water on both sides to Sliema and Birgu respectively.
On the South coast of the island Marsaxlokk and Marsascala both have quite a few restaurants albeit no real marinas as such (mostly small local boats for fishing etc.). Marsaxlokk does get a lot of day-trip tourists, particularly at the weekends. Valletta and surrounds is a busy area. The traffic can be bad, so getting the ferry service onto Valletta is usually easiest. A lot of the roads on Malta are in poor condition, your sat-nav may well send you down some dubious looking tracks!
The local beer (Cisk) is very good, and the local pastizzi are also excellent and very cheap (30c in most places).

Hi Gary and Dawn
To answer your question regarding restaurants and things to do near anchorages, the answer is yes, we will be featuring businesses and services all around the island. Many of our visitors don't necessarily stay close to marina on their visit. They tend to explore the island either via boat or by land transport, including car and bike hire, taxi, or public transport. So keep checking our guide as more and more businesses and services come on board over the coming weeks.

We are pleased to announce that due to popular demand, two of our representatives Steve & Richard will be visiting Malta on the 6th May and will be on the island for two weeks compiling our very first Malta guide.
Our initial response is extremely positive and we look forward to visiting this fabulous sailing mecca and compiling a comprehensive and invaluable guide for yachtsmen and general visitors.
And in reply to Beryl and Jim, yes we will be incorporating Gozo.

D Office Bistro by Chris and Andrea
A really cool bar and restaurant is this place. We had just got off the boat from a quite lengthy crossing and were pretty tired. However we ended up staying for quite some time. The food and the service was spot on and we ate here quite a few times on our trip and all was good.

Palazzo Preca Restaurant by Chris and Andrea
When we read the reviews on this restaurant we were careful to not get carried away and then be disappointed. There was no need to worry, this restaurant is of the highest quality. Everything about our experience here was 100% positive. Food service atmosphere etc. all perfect. Very well run and we are already looking forward to eating here again on our next visit to Malta

Msida and Ta’ Xbiex Marina by Mario Gauci
Very well located and very sheltered marina. This is the place to ride out the winter months. Facilities are on hand or close by and staff are knowledgeable and can help out with recommendations for reliable service providers. It's also great as a base for cruising in summer.

Palazzo Preca Restaurant
The Preca sisters (Ramona and Roberta) both worked at their family restaurant Tal-Familja in Marsascala. They were both in their mid-twenties and at such a young age one would easily be tempted to think that it was there that they cut their gastronomic teeth. In truth, it transpires that they were already veterans by this time after having spent much of their childhood fiddling in their father’s kitchen at the mythical King’s Own Band Club in Valletta.
It was there that the girls learnt their ropes under the keen, imposing watchful eye of their father Charles, helping out in the chopping of parsley, capers, olives and any other ingredients which would adorn the club’s mouthwatering appetizers.

The feelings that the Grand Harbour brings have been inspiring for The Harbour Club, and have driven us to develop a restaurant that rewards our diners with a holistic experience that influences all our senses. Our team works hard to provide our diners with a combination of high quality food and wine and an exceptional level of service.
Our ability to provide this experience in a carefully converted warehouse that was built by the 64th Grand Master of the Order of Malta in 1712, gives our diners a unique dining experience. Indoors, one may enjoy a cosy interior, decorated elegantly with a recycled deck of an American ship. On the terrace, the stunning view of the Grand Harbour as you enjoy a glass of wine and one of our exquisite dishes, will remain memorable.

Fort St Angelo is then rounded to port to enter the final approach channel, which is marked with small red and green buoys. Call us on VHF channel 13 for berthing instructions. Yachts should also contact Valletta Port Control on channel 12 when 12 miles out, and may be asked to call again one mile from the entrance, depending on the movement of commercial traffic within the harbour.

The Diacono family is somewhat synonymous with food. Grandfather Charles Wirth, a banker by profession, had a passion for good food, not to mention for having a good time too. He involved himself in the opening of catering establishments in Valletta and Buskett. Needless to say that this love for good food, inherently rubbed onto his daughters Rita and Therese who in turn did not miss the opportunity to do the same with their children. Rita, with the occasional help of her eleven children prepared an average of 14,235 meals a year just to feed her family in what was a very large kitchen by today’s standard.
