This guidebook describes 33 half- and full day walks on the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino. Basking in the Mediterranean sunshine between Sicily and Africa, the islands have a colourful and complex history from the Neolithic and the Medieval to the present day. Malta may be known as a tourist destination but it also offer plenty of historic walks, stunningly beautiful and dramatic architecture and excellent scenery, especially around the cliffs and coastlines: highlights include the World Heritage Site of Old Valetta, historic buildings and landmarks of the many historical peoples of Malta=, and the idyllic circuit of Comino, smallest of the Maltese islands.
The routes in this guidebook range from 2.5-30km, beginning with a short heritage trail around the city of Valletta. Then follows a series of walks around the coastline of Malta, with a final few moving inland to explore the island's interior, before a description of the Heritage Trail around Mdina and Rabat. Spring is the best time for walking here: high summer can be too hot for strenuous walking, while winter is fine but can be rainy and even a little cold.
Walks on Gozo start with a heritage trail around Victoria, followed by a clockwise exploration of spectacular coastal walking that allows a complete circuit of the island. The final walk on Gozo wanders over a series of little hills further inland, while the last walk in the book might be the best of them all: a circuit around the lovely little island of Comino. The guidebook also gives details of accommodation, transport and tourist information.
The world-famous rock arch of the Azure Window, on the island of Gozo, has collapsed. Nothing remains of it, so cherish the pictures in the guidebook. Paddy had noticed it was getting thinner each time he visited, and it finally succumbed to a storm around 09:40 on Wednesday 8th March 2017.
The Azure Window is mentioned in Walk 27 on page 185, and also in the introduction on page 35.
