Charging up your weekend!

If you’re looking for something different to do with your families on a Sunday, we’ve got just the thing. This November, the Valletta Waterfront will be organising Strings Unplugged, an event happening every Sunday which will feature acoustic duos and kids’ entertainment for all the family to enjoy.

November’s weather is totally perfect for a full meal (including fantastic desserts, cos obvs) or a stroll along the promenade just by the water’s edge. The setting is gorgeous, with Malta’s history on full display. The iconic doors have been revived with an artistic impression of colour, representing the storage system of the past: blue for fish, green for produce, yellow for wheat and red for wine (our fave!)

Lunch time tunes

For those in search of a relaxing time with good food and entertainment, the Valletta Waterfront’s many restaurants and bars present a variety of offerings catering to different tastes. The establishments’ indoor dining areas are situated inside the tastefully refurbished, historical stores, originally commissioned by Grand Master Pinto in 1752.

Acoustic duos will provide a relaxed atmosphere for you to enjoy a great day out. Catch up with family and friends over lunch or a drink at the Valletta Waterfront. Jodi & Ian and Mel & Noogie will be alternating the weekends and entertaining you and your family as you indulge in the scrumptious food available.

Kids’ entertainment

Every Saturday evening and Sunday at lunchtime, little guests at the Valletta Waterfront can enjoy free activities such as bouncy castles (GOALS!), face painting, balloon-modelling, crafts, games, colouring-ins, meet and greets with all-time favourite characters, puppet shows and more. They’ll definitely be entertained while the adults are sipping on their wine and nibbling away.

Getting to Valletta Waterfront

Getting to this part of Valletta is pretty easy, and there are various alternative transport options to choose from.

1. There’s a Valletta circular bus that leaves from the main bus terminal just outside the capital.

2. The Valletta Waterfront features on most hop-on hop-off bus routes, which will drop you off just a few metres away.

3. The Upper Barrakka panoramic lift will take your right from the gorgeous garden down to the waterfront. You can also combine the ticket for the lift with the ferry crossing across the Grand Harbour to or from The Three Cities.

4. Electric cabs are available from just outside Valletta and on the Valletta Waterfront itself, so you can easily travel to and from these central spots in the city.

5. For those after a fun and eco-friendly way to commute, a bike-sharing station is also available at Valletta Waterfront. 

6. If you’re going all bougie and have a boat, you can even request a berthing spot at Laguna Marina.

7. If you do opt to go by car, you can park on the quays or in the Atrium parking located in the middle of the promenade at a flat rate charge, or if you’re lucky to find a spot on the side of the road, then parking will be free!
