With a lot of construction going on in the country, one tends to start asking which places are interesting to visit for a walk, a jog, or even a hike with friends, away from cars, construction noise and asphalt.
While Malta is definitely lacking in this area, there are still some suggestive places where one could go to enjoy the countryside that the Maltese Islands can offer.
Today we will be sharing 3 with you:
An area close to the Delimara power station should not dishearten you from visiting.
This place will see you possibly going on foot from the outskirts Marsascala (St Thomas Bay area) all the way to Xrobb l-Għaġin where you could see the various cliffs in the area.
For an extra challenge, you could continue walking past a couple of other popular Summer destinations: Il-Ħofra l-Kbira and Il-Ħofra ż-Żgħira, all the way to St. Peter’s Pool and Il-Kalanka.
Wied ta’ Miġra l-Ferħa
Generally a nice area on the western coast of Malta whereby people can hike for hours on end to reach various points.
Coming down from Bahrija, the area of Miġra l-Ferħa can be found midway between Fomm ir-Riħ beach and Dingli.
Another popular spot in the area is Ras id-Dawwara, all of which offer stunning sunset views and idyllic countryside spots.
Start off by admiring the magnificent views of Malta, Gozo and Comino. Then proceed with taking in the beautiful Red Tower found nearby.
The walk will see you all the way through to the radar station, and once there you will get to see yet another side of the island. While we cannot guarantee the absence of cars, this area is still worth a visit.
San Raflu Lake
Here’s a bonus tip! San Raflu Lake is a nice small (for tourists: extremely small) lake in Gozo which can be admired especially during winter or early spring where water is often enough for the lake to be full.
This area of San Lawrenz in Gozo boasts a lovely walk full of a number of scenic views of the western side of Malta, while often giving you a chance to spot the islet of Filfla at a distance.
This is just a small selection of places you could try out. Make sure to take some photos and show them to your friends for them to tag along with the next time you go!
