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.

Valletta Waterfront reviews
This area is worth a stroll through. The moored boats are pretty fancy and the views across the harbour are spectacular. Time well spent

Great views of a lovely busy harbour with all sorts of sea craft. Nice flat walk which is unusual for this city. Some good bars and cafes.

Love what they've done with this area. The facade of the old buildings make a great backdrop for view out to the port. Some good eateries. Was quiet and relaxed fit an out of season lunchtime stop.
Historic, huge and a great place to take pictures and just walk. Sticking along the walls elevations vary and there is so much of interest. Beware of traffic coming from your right as you step into the streets.
