Pozzallo ferry port in Sicily connects you with Valletta in Malta with a choice of up to 10 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Pozzallo to Valletta crossing is from 1 hour 45 minutes and the crossing is operated by Virtu Ferries.
Pozzallo is an Italian town found on the south coast of Sicily, lying in the province of Ragusa. The port is oftentimes used as the gateway to Malta, connecting passengers from Sicily to Valletta, the capital city of Malta, with the crossing lasting around 1 hour 45 minutes.
Pozzallo is a fun place to visit throughout the summer, yet early to mid-August is when the town really comes together. Resembling an unofficial festival, the residents and tourists sleep on the beach, enjoying bonfires, food and music all through the night. The whole week of a party atmosphere is the highlight of Pozzallo’s social calendar, yet there is much more to the town; Torre Cabrera symbolises the historical architecture synonymous with Sicily’s south coast. Much of the centre is filled with historical buildings and unique infrastructure that satisfies those who have a penchant for learning about Italy’s cultural past.
The centre may provide the culture, but to experience the quintessential golden sands and beautiful weather associated with Sicily then head to the inviting beaches. Beach clubs and bars line the coast, which prove very popular in the summer months when the refreshments are ideal in the hot climate. The beaches are arguably the most popular attraction, and to continue the relaxation, beauty spas supply a tranquil experience in a serene environment.
Most choose to travel on foot, which is the desirable option considering the picturesque environment.
