After landing his men and taking aboard fresh recruits, he left Messina and set sail for Malta. A barge had arrived from Gozo with news that the enemy fleet was already at Malta.
The day after, the Aragonese set sail southwards, leaving Syracuse and reaching Capo Passero. After resting overnight, the Aragonese fleet set sail for the south east coast of Sicily, rather than head for Malta directly.
After putting in at Fonte di Scicli , Lauria landed all his men to rest in Scicli to prepare themselves for the coming battle.
Before leaving Scicli, the Aragonese took with them a small barge, with eight oars. Their plan was to use it to scout Grand Harbour secretly, without being seen.
The fleet embarked early, and reached the entrance of Grand Harbour at daybreak, just before matins. Two small scouting galleys entered the port, led by the small barge at a " distance of a cross-bow shot.
The barge approached the castle, and found all the Angevin galleys with their oars unshipped and beached. Counting twenty-two galleys and two smaller ships the Aragonese barge then returned to Lauria to report its findings.
Roger of Lauria ordered his followers to put on their armour and set his galleys in order of battle. The Aragonese sailors wanted to enter harbour quickly and use the element of surprise, crying to " Let us attack, for they are all ours.
Lauria sounded his trumpets and began to enter Grand Harbour with his galleys formed in line and lashed together.
A hundred noble Frenchmen quickly came down from the castle, and reinforced the sailors in the galleys which put to sea. Cornut sounded his trumpets, hoisted his sails and set his galley onto Lauria's.
The fleets met in the middle of Grand Harbour, in an " attack so vigorous, that the prow of every galley was shattered, and the battle was most cruel and fierce.
Word was passed through to the sailors to hurl no weapons whatsoever until the Angevins' barrage stopped. The Catalans' marksmanship, particularly their almogavars and their crossbowmen carried the battle for the Aragonese.
Detaching their lashings, the individual Aragonese galleys then moved in for the ship-to-ship assault. Once the Angevin galleys were grappled, the almogavars boarded the enemy ships, with the exhausted and heavily armoured French knights being no match for the agile Aragonese infantry.
The battle, which had begun at sunrise, lasted until the hour of vespers , with Muntaner remarking that " never could any man see more cruel a battle.
Muntaner states that Cornut fell in single-combat with Lauria. The Aragonese captured the remaining Angevin galleys, with one of the lighter Angevin scouting ships managing to put out to sea and escape.
The ship, according to Muntaner, made its way to Naples and Marseilles with news of the Angevin disaster. The rest were either sunk, or captured.
Lauria took his galleys and landed his troops on the western point of Grand Harbour, with his losses counted at three hundred dead and two hundred injured.
Lauria ordered the King's officials in the city to send runners to Messina and to the rest of the Sicily. A captured Angevin fast ship was quickly manned and sent on to Catalonia, to the King of Aragon.
Passing by Mallorca and Barcelona , the vessel sent a runner to inform the Aragonese court with the good news. The Aragonese admiral gave up the King's share and his own right to the booty won by his soldiers, declaring the galleys and the Angevin prisoners to be enough.
His soldiers gave Lauria their thanks, and rested for two days. After resting his men for two days, Lauria advanced with his banners raised on the city of Malta.
The notables pleaded with him not to do any damage, saying that the city would put itself in the keeping and the command of the King of Aragon, and that Malta would surrender to Lauria.
The admiral entered the city with his troops, and received the homage of the city and the island. Lauria then briefly attempted to besiege the castle, but finding it impossible without catapults and siege equipment, he was forced to raise the siege.
The notables of Malta gave Lauria one thousand onzas in jewels and precious stones, as well as enough provisions to allow a safe passage to Messina.
The city surrendered immediately, and received one hundred Catalan soldiers under the same terms as Malta. The men of Gozo gave jewels to the value of five hundred onzas ,  and further provisions for the Aragonese galleys.
The victorious fleet was celebrated at every Sicilian harbour it landed. Muntaner asserts that after sharing the victory in Malta, the Aragonese and the Sicilians united themselves in the " bonds of friendship The crushing defeat forced the postponement of Angevin plans to invade Sicily , established Aragonese naval tactic superiority and set the scene for the Battle of the Gulf of Naples in Battle of Malta.
