A boat charter destination
When it comes to the perfect destination for boating, the island of Malta has it all. Known for its warm climate and breath-taking landscapes, Malta is surrounded by safe beaches, plenty of warm sunshine and a gorgeous coastline. Clear blue is the colour that best describes the Malta experience, be it the sky or its reflection on the deep, almost transparent sea. This makes the island a perfect haven for swimming, snorkelling, diving or simply sunbathing and soaking the sun.
Another advantage is the natural and built coastline. Malta is a unique historical treasure and viewing it from a boat enables you to appreciate its eclectic mix of outstanding architecture, stretches of Mediterranean vegetation and sea life that thrives right up to the shore. The island is full of prominent churches that are at least 200 years old and rural houses that are juxtaposed by remarkably modern structures and fine examples of contemporary buildings.
Exploring all of this in the comfort of a private boat is the true meaning of the best of both worlds: basking in the beauty of sunshine and sea-salt, whilst admiring the islands that have stood in the middle of the Mediterranean for long centuries.
‘Ħofra’ in Maltese means ‘a pit’. There are two ‘pits’ that can be found along Malta’s southern coast. In reality, they are two semi-circular enclosures made of globigerina limestone. This area is beautiful because of its natural characteristics, such as the typical Mediterranean colours and the scent of Maltese thyme. Visiting these sites by chartered boat is ideal, because their location makes them difficult to access. Close to the largest enclosure, you will find a point called ‘Ras il-Fenek’, which means ‘rabbit’s head’. The best way to explore why this point is called so, is to find out for yourself!
