Walking Holidays in Malta and Gozo
The archipelago of islands, Malta, Comino and Gozo are located in the heart of the Western Mediterranean, just south of Sicily. These islands are crammed full of interest, including their complex culture and history, ancient temples, dramatic architecture, friendly people, hidden coves and turquoise seas. Basking in sunshine for the majority of the year, this destination is great to travel to when elsewhere the weather is dismal!
Malta’s capital, Valletta, was built by the Knights of St John and has stunning architecture, built of honey-coloured stone and it’s a city well-worthy of exploration. Mdina, the old capital is an interesting fortress-like hill top town.
Comino, the tiny island between Malta and Gozo is a paradise for walkers. Once you have seen its famed Blue Lagoon, stroll around the island for some solitude and astounding views. It is also home to a nature reserve, a bird sanctuary and is free of cars.
Malta’s sister island, Gozo is smaller, greener and more rural. Its life’s rhythms are dictated by the seasons as it predominant industries are fishing and agriculture. Baroque Churches and old stone farmhouses dot the landscape and it is also where you can see one of the best-preserved prehistoric temples, Ggantija.
