Malta is year after year becoming one of the most solicited holiday destinations in Europe, its combination of historical heritage, amazing beaches, and its adventure sports offers may be the reason. One of the activities that stand out is windsurfing.
Malta is, without a doubt, one of the finest destinations in the Mediterranean. There, windsurfing is growing in popularity every summer. This is why so many locals and holiday makers choose to indulge in this sport during the summer.
Thanks to Malta’s sub-tropical stunning climate due to its central Mediterranean location between Sicily and North Africa, the sea off the coast of this island is warm and pleasant throughout the year. Windsurfing in Malta is an exhilarating and challenging sport that allows enthusiasts and beginners to enjoy the delights of Malta’s coasts from an entirely different perspective.
Ghallet Marku is by far one of the most famous spots for windsurfing in Malta. This area is located along the northern coastline between Salina and Mellieha. There you can expect favorable winds in this area so windsurfers are a popular sight just off shore.
Malta boasts a large variety of windsurfing locations for all skills and challenges, from flat calm waters perfect for windsurfing beginners to more challenging rocky areas where the wind is higher. Mellieha Bay in the North and St. Thomas Bay in Marsascala at the opposite end of the island offer similar and varied conditions for all windsurfing levels.
