From Kalkara Marina, the home base of our yacht fleet, cruising sailors may visit the pristine beaches and anchorage spots along the coastline of Malta, Gozo and Comino. Gozo is the second biggest island, where sailors may use the good facilities at the Marina of Mgarr or anchor in one of the picturesque bays.
Gozo is worth a visit ashore for it reserves its own charm. Comino is excellent for swimming and its bays provide excellent shelter for anchorage at night in prevailing winds. The clear waters of Comino’s lagoons are a sight to behold. In Malta, the large Mellieha Bay facing North East makes for excellent anchoring with unlimited space, especially in a North West wind.
With its crystal clear water, Blue Lagoon resembles a movie set. It is perhaps the most beautiful bay in Malta. It is no surprise that it features on many a Malta postcard, website or brochure. If the wind is not blowing from the north-west, Blue Lagoon makes a beautiful anchorage at night if you are cruising in Malta at the beginning (mid-March to May) or the end (October to mid-December) of our sailing season. It is one of the most popular beaches in summer.
Crystal Lagoon is adjacent to Blue Lagoon and is equally beautiful and charming. The sight to behold are the cliffs on Comino and the picturesque tower which overlooks both the North and the South Comino Channels.
Waking up in a beautiful bay is probably one of the most beautiful experiences of sailing. Santa Marija Bay, on the northern side of Comino, is one such place. Its sand bottom makes for very good anchorage, especially in northeast, southeast and southwest winds.
