One of three islands in the Maltese archipelago, Malta is the perfect place to visit, whether you are a nature lover, history buff, or just want a quiet place to relax. With historical sites that go back as far as the Megalithic times, Malta has so many sites to offer, that you may end up extending your stay. With the other two islands within easy sailing distance, and Malta itself being easily accessible from Italy and from Sicily, with up to 22 ferries running per week across 3 different routes, book now with Direct Ferries, to find the best ferry at the best price for you.

Malta sailing durations and frequency may vary from season to season, and from month to month, so we’d advise doing a live check to get the most up to date information.

Malta reviews

  • "Sailing thru the night "

    Excellent spacious cabin but shower less than luke warm, with taps that seem to work backwards. Point to hot label when it’s actually cold Staff were helpful Crossing was calm and uneventful Left late but arrived on time so all worked out as expected. I think this is normal for all ships, a bit like air travel timing

  • "Grimaldi car ferry"

    Very pleased with this crossing. The boat was punctual. It was an old ferry boat the cabin was adequate although the ensuite could have done with updating. The food was nothing special but fine for the trip.
