Rambling in Malta

Malta is a ramblers paradise! Being a Mediterranean Island, surrounded by Blue Seas and pleasant weather is already quite a plus! There is nothing better than a beautiful March Day, sun shining, 22 degrees, the sound of buzzing bees is back and everywhere is full of color. Purple Flowers, Yellow Flowers, Green Grass, Blue Sea, Brown Rubble walls, all the best ingredients for a great day walking.

Most of Malta's country side is very easy to walk through. You should always be able to find country passages from one spot to another, although do steer clear of private property. Sometime you will come along the work "RTO", which means Reserved to Owner. Be careful when you see this sign, even though it does not always necessary mean that it is legitamate. Rambling during the bird hunting season could be a little bit more problematic as the country side is busy with gun wielding hunters. Although most of them are quite nice, others see foreigners as a threat to their hobby, so be aware!

When is it best to walk in Malta?

The best months to walk around in Malta are definitely March, April, May, October & November. In these months, Temperature will be between 18 and 23 degrees (Possibly slightly higher in May) and the country side will be at its best. Ideally, never plan walking too much beforehand. If you are coming for a week, check out the weather forecast and leave the windy days for shopping.

The winter months, December, January and February can also be very pleasant with temperature of around 14-16 degrees. If you are living in Northern Europe, then this could be summer for you. However my advice is, if you really plan to walk in these months, try and plan a longer holiday as sometimes you can get 3 or 4 miserable rainy days in a row. In a period of 1 week, you should be luck enough to get at least 1 great day for walking.

Where is it best to walk in Malta and Gozo?

The West coast of Malta is, in my opinion, the best location. Start from the North at Paradise Bay and you can walk all the way down to the south of the Island, past Irdum id-Delli, Golden Bay, Gnejna, Bahrija, il-Blata Tal Melh, Dingli Cliffs, Ghar Lapsi and Wied Iz-Zurrieq. The south of the Island also offers some spectecular walks. However besides the coast, there is lots of inland walking to do. The Rabat area is incredibly enchanting, with lots of history to see on the way. Mellieha is also great for walking, and so is Mgarr. The Island of Gozo also offers a fantsactic array of great walks, both on the coast and inland. My personal favourites are the Gharb and Ghasri Areas on the North Side, and Qala area on the South Side. However there is much more I haven't seen yet!
