Coastal Walks on Malta

Nature, Culture and Fabulous Views.

At first glance the rocky cliffs of the Maltese islands appear wild and rugged. However you will discover during your walking holiday that behind this rugged front hides a surprisingly multifarious landscape. Your daily walking tours along the coast leads you from soft sandy beaches to jagged cliffs and into the barren hinterland. On some days you walk along the tracks of the Order of Malta past ancient monuments and ruins. These tiny islands will not cease to surprise you again and again and offer all year round best conditions for a marvellous and relaxing walking holiday in southern climes.

Itinerary

Transfer to the Golden Bay. Here you follow a spectacular coastline until the colourful houses of ‚Popeye Village’ appear in front of you. It was built as a film set in the 1980-ies and has now become a popular holiday destination for families. A plunge into the cool waters is a fitting finish for this day.

The capital of Malta has a long and tumultuous history. Even though parts of the old centre were destroyed during World War II, the influences of various cultures on Malta are still clearly visible today. The old part of town is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site and serves as a backdrop for today’s walking tour.

Ferry crossing over to the smallest island of the Maltese archipelago. Comino has only four permanent residents and is consequently a perfect sanctuary for migrating birds. Especially in spring and autumn a walking tour on this island is a true highlight! The route takes you to a watchtower of the Order of Malta. After the walk you take the ferry back and move into your accommodation on Gozo island.

Compared to Malta, Gozo is only sparsely populated and is considered a true oasis of tranquility. The landscape appears wild and rugged again, but especially in the months of spring Gozo’s valleys are ablaze with yellow blossoms. The route takes you from Xlendi to the well-known ‚Azure Window’, a spectacular stone arch protruding majestically from the deep blue sea.

Maltas Küsten im Frühling
Wunderschöne Touren, Gegend, optimale Jahreszeit, Blumen, grün...Inkludierte Taxitransfers waren sehr gut geplant. Touren waren auch ohne versprochener GPS-Führung zu bewältigen. Lokale Betreuung war ausgezeichnet. Zusatztage waren ein schöner Ausklang der Wanderung.
