Walking on Malta
33 walks on the Mediterranean islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino
By Paddy Dillon
This guidebook describes 33 walks on Malta and its neighbouring islands of Gozo and Comino. Walks generally range from 3 to 17km, and include Valetta, heritage trails, coastal walks and explorations inland, including the 30km 'Victoria Lines' route between Mgarr and Bahar ic-Caghaq. Malta offers year-round walking.
Seasonsspring is best, high summer perhaps too hot for strenuous walking: winter walking is fine, but it can be rainy and even a little cold
CentresMalta is about the same size as the Isle of Wight, so anywhere will make a fine base for walking
Difficultyhalf and full-day walks, usually easy, but with some longer stretches along the clifftops
Must SeeOld Valetta (a World Heritage Site); excellent walking on clifftop coastlines away from the towns; the historic buildings and landmarks of the many peoples who have come to Malta; the circuit of Comino
This guidebook describes 33 half- and full day walks on the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino. The routes 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.
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.
Malta may be known as a tourist destination, but it also offers plenty of historic walks, stunningly beautiful and dramatic architecture and excellent scenery, especially around the cliffs and coastlines.
