Valletta is built on a peninsula and therefore enjoys breathtaking sea views from three sides. Some of the most spectacular views are those of the Grand Harbour from the Upper Barrakka Gardens, the Break Water from Lower Barrakka Gardens, and Marsamxett Creek from Hastings Gardens.

There are ferry connections to Sliema across Marsamxett Creek, and to Victoriosa across the Grand Harbour. Carafa is conveniently located less than 5 minutes on foot away from the sea of Marsamxett Creek, an ideal spot for swimming, diving, fishing, kayaking, or enjoying spectacular views while walking around the Valletta coast.
