Valletta “waterfront” is a bit ambiguous. You have the Sliema waterfront, which is a bit more modern, with bars, restaurants, and shops. You have the three cities waterfront, which is a bit more relaxed. And you have the Valletta city center water front, which is a bit more historical. Any way you go, wandering around gives you a feel of Valletta, its history, and its people.

Nice to wander and see how the cruise visitors are ripped off with the prices near the docking point.

A pleasant area.
Busker there was ok.

This is where Hard Rock Cafe and other bars and restaurants snare the lazy travellers off the ships. The town is a steep walk or a lift journey (€1) away. See a little more and save a few €?

This is an easy and safe (at least I felt safe) area to walk. There are lots of local vendors offering their products along the waterway.

In general, Malta is a filthy place. Everywhere you go, you will find tons of garbage.
In Valletta you can find 3 or 4 streets that are more or less clean. Also, take in consideratio that the center of Valletta is very crowded.

Gotta love this place! First of all, it is clean and well maintained. You have a wide variety of restaurants and cuisines to choose from. Only issue - parking! It is very very hard to find any parking space, especially when you have cruises coming in.

It’s been a few years since I last visited Malta and while interiors change, the exteriors stay the same, thankfully. Seeing the Valletta walls is as awesome as ever and the surrounding shops, restaurants and bars are modernising and improving. It’s still an absolute must to visit.

The paths leading to the Waterfront are cool, the area itself is clean and maintained.

However, evenings and nights: it's so noisy because of the busy eateries and the many outside tables, that it's probably going to cause anxiety fits in the more gentle visitors. I am not sensitive, but even I felt it was too much.

Also: it's impossible to get a meal delivered or order for takeaway after 7 p.m. You'll literally be shooed in favour of the people who actually eat at the tables.

There are two benches which are prefect of you grab a coffe from Starbucks and decide to drink it at the Waterfront. You can stare at the departing cruises or the parked boats.

The shops at the beginning of the walk were closed during my visit to the area.

The shops have closed and only a few of the cafes are struggling on. The buildings are very pretty and hopefully the area will recover.

This place is as old as the hills awarded the George Cross in ww2, velletta is steeped in history dating back years, it's still under construction in places, but it still has the charm and old feeling about the place, sprawling cafes tat shops galore Street musicians, visit churches get lost in the streets, see the pub where Oliver Reed died, or just sit down and watch the world go by.
