The Valletta Waterfront is an award-winning landmark on the Island of Malta.
There are nineteen beautifully restored 18th century warehouses built during the late Baroque period, stretching along the water’s edge with a backdrop of historic bastions and fortifications. The gemstone buildings were originally constructed by Grandmaster Pinto to be used as stores by the Knights of St. John.
Today, ushering in a modern era, the iconic doors have been revived with an artistic impression of colour, representing the storage of goods from days past, with blue for fish, green for produce, yellow for wheat and red for wine.
The heritage buildings have been transformed into a variety of lively restaurants, retail outlets and office space. One will find a host of services ranging from banks to tax-free shopping, WIFI connection to a tourist information service and various transport services.
The Valletta Waterfront is the key element of Valletta Cruise Port, as the recognized centre for thriving cruise business in Malta. The coloured doors are the first and last visual impression which lingers with our visiting guests.
Ample parking space available on the quays (fuq il-moll), across the old power station. Flat rate starting from €2.50.
