Esplora is located on Triq Marina, Kalkara which is up the hill from the parish church and square, please see map below.
There is roadside parking located from the square as well as most of the roadside of Triq Marina. There is also a parking area on the corner of Fuq-il-Futini and Triq San Dwardu.
We encourage you to take public transport as we have a bus stop directly opposite the Centre. You can take the number 3 bus from Valletta, or for a more scenic route we recommend the water taxi from Valletta waterfront to Bormla (Cospicua). You can then either hop aboard the number 3 bus or enjoy a 20 minute walk to Esplora, taking in the sights of the beautiful Cottonera harbours along the way.
