A Walking Holiday in Malta


From fall to spring, after the hot summer months, it would be great to go to Malta to experience the beautiful countryside which is full of life.  Life here is in the form of greens and blooming plants especially in the late part of the spring.

It is not only the great sunny weather and the beautiful sea that can be experienced in Malta but much more.  Although there are many great resorts and activities that can be done in the urban side of Malta, you can have a different kind of holiday in parts untouched by modernization and boasts of lovely counrysides.  This part of Malta is where farmers and cultivators thrive and here life centers on agricultural and fishing seasons.  In these villages you will discover the old Maltese way of life which has been preserved.  The main living of men and women in this place is in the fields and out in the sea.

It is surprising how guidebooks do not include these types of country walks.  The only thing required here is a good pair of shoes and you can enjoy exploring the hidden and secluded areas around the island.  When you are in Malta on a holiday, you may opt on a Malta Sightseeing such as the Bahrija Walk, Dwejra Walk, Girgenti Walk or the Marfa Walk.

One of the great things to enjoy in the Maltese islands is the breathtaking views of the Mediterranean.  Dramatic cliffs, garrigue scrublands, luscious hills and valleys fill the place.  Families working on their farmlands, goat and sheep herds, old farmhouse, cave chapels and prehistoric sites are what you will see during your walk along the countryside.  You can find a lot of places in Malta where you can enjoy day hikes.  These places where you can hike include Mallieha, Dingli, Ghar Lapsi, Fawwara, Wardija, various bays, and the southern coast with its fishing villages and Dalimara Point.

If you want to slow down and enjoy the countryside, a walk on Gozo will be ideal.  The sky is sunny and the pace of life is very relaxed in this place.   Here, the popular places for walking include the Ta Dglebi, Gordan Lighthouse, Hondoq ir-Rummient, and San Blas Valley.  The island has many criss-crossed tracks showing that the possibilities are endless in the place.  Tiny Comino is a place inhabited by only 15 people and is ideal for a day’s hiking activity.  Walking in this place provides you with solitude and awesome views.

If you want to be alone during peak season then you can follow the farmers’ tracks from the village squares.  Experiencing ancient farmhouse, wayside chapels and spectacular seascapes will make you discover a lot of things.
