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
