Malta Channel separates the European island of Malta from the southern tip of Sicily. The channel serves as a sea route link to Europe for the Maltese. Virtu Ferries take people from Malta to Italy and vice versa.
In World War II, this sea saw naval battles and was also heavily mined when Malta, then a colony of Britain, tried to supply the island. Also there were other naval battles fought between the Knights of Malta and the Ottoman Empire pirates, and also during the Punic Wars.
