Walking on Malta

33 walks on the Mediterranean islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino

This guidebook describes 33 walks on Malta and its neighbouring islands of Gozo and Comino. Walks generally range from 3 to 22km, and include Valetta, heritage trails, coastal walks and explorations inland, including the 'Victoria Lines' route between Mgarr and Bahar ic-Caghaq. Malta offers year-round walking.


spring is best, high summer perhaps too hot for strenuous walking: winter walking is fine, but it can be rainy and even a little cold


Malta is about the same size as the Isle of Wight, so anywhere will make a fine base for walking


half and full-day walks, usually easy, but with some longer stretches along the clifftops

Must See

Old 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
