Windsurf in Malta and sail the sea like the wind
Windsurfing during your holiday in Malta
Malta is the ideal choice for windsurfing due to the warm waters and the easy accessibility of windsurfing spots. The ideal time to go windsurfing in Malta is between November and March, when the wind conditions are at their best. Cold fronts that usually travel across the Mediterranean from NW to SE give mainly strong NW winds lasting 2-3 days with a usual force around five or six. However, winter wetsuits of minimum 4 mm are needed during this period while a t-shirt and shorts are fine during summer. The best windsurfing areas in Malta are Mellieha Bay, Ghallis Rock (close to St. Julian’s) and St. Thomas Bay.
Windsurfing Spots in Malta, for all styles and conditions
The most popular windsurfing spot in Malta is Ghallis Rock located on the coast road, especially when the wind is from W/NW/N. Experience is needed to surf in this area and be careful when there is a shore break for the rocks. Mellieha bay is the largest bay in Malta and it is also offers the largest variety of windsurfing conditions with flat waters that are perfect for speed blasting and slalom. St. Thomas Bay is a quite small bay on the south side of Malta facing E'S. Windsurfing conditions in St. Thomas Bay are similar to Mellieha Bay but in a less crowded area. Usually windsurfing rentals in Malta do not cater for the more advanced windsurfers, only beginners
