    Sliema ferry

    by Turska Written Jun 19, 2011

    We were planning to go one day from Sliema to Valletta or other way around with the ferry. BUt at those 8 days we spent at the Malta, we only saw the ferry going coupple of times. Even if it seemd very calm, and it should be going according the timetable, it didn´t! So don´t count on it, it it isn´t very very calm!! We waited many times at the harbour and sea was very peaceful, but when we asked the locals, they said it wont go.

    getting in from Sliema

    by call_me_rhia Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Captain Morgan has a ferry service to La valletta. The crossing takes only 5 minutes and the price (June 2010) was 93 cents one way.

    From 1st October to 30th April the ferry leaves hourly (on the hour) from 8 am to 10 pm, then every 30 minutes until 4.40 pm. The last crossing is then at 5.30 pm. From 1st May to 30th September there’s an earlier crossing at 7.30 am and a later one at 6 pm. Not all crossings take place on Sunday and during public holidays, so you’d better cross-check my info.

    Return from La valletta is at 15 ad 45 minutes past the hour.

    Ferry from valletta to Sliema seafront

    by Elly01 Written Feb 24, 2009

    Take a ferry from Valletta seafront down passed Old Bakey Street down to the seafront - you will see the blue ferry. I think the cost is 1.86 Euros. This is a nice experience because you get to cross over from Sliema to Valletta and vice versa. In bad weather usually the ferry does not work. This is ideal if the buses are full up or if there is a big event like Carnival in Valletta. This service is offered 7 days a week.

    Please see attached the schedule of the times

    For further information please contact The Marsamxetto Steamferry Services Ltd.

    Ferry from Sliema to Valletta

    Ferry from Sliema to Valletta

    Even though catching a bus in Malta is an experience it self, nothing can beat travelling to Valletta by ordinary ferry that leaves every half hour from Sliema Ferries, at the end of the Strand. The service is quick (10 minutes or so) and cheap (0,35 Lm). Also, you have a good view over both Valletta and Sliema from the water (in case you can't afford those expensive harbour cruises).
    The only drawback is that the last ferry from Valletta only returns at 6 PM.

    Valletta Ferry

    We took the ferry from Sliema to Valletta. We could have stayed on the bus and gotten to Valletta that way, but we wanted to arrive by water, especially as the views of Valletta as you approach this way are great, and it's a lot, lot cooler than the bus!
    Fares were 75c each way.

    From other countries - by plain, Med cruise ships or Virtu Ferries boat from Sicily.
    The best - walk! and only walk! If you come by car to Valletta - park the car outside the city and walk!!
