Sightseeing 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.
There is more to Malta than the great sunny weather and the cool sea. 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 Maltese villages their old way of life is preserved. The main living of men and women in this place is in the fields and out in the sea.
Taking a walk in the countryside away from the urban world is one way that tourists can get a real feel of the Maltese landscape. It is ideal for couples, groups of friends, and single travelers who love to be in a natural setting and would like to leave the busy life behind for a while.
It is surprising how guidebooks do not include these types of country walks. In order to enjoy exploring the hidden and secluded areas around the island you are only required to have a good pair of shoes. When you are in Malta on a holiday, you may opt on a Malta walk such as the Bahrija Walk, Dwejra Walk, Girgenti Walk or the Marfa Walk.
In the Maltese islands one can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean. IN these places are dramatic cliffs, garrigue scrublands, luscious hills and valleys. Along the countryside what you will see are families working on their farmlands, goat or sheep herds, cave chapels, old farmhouses or prehistoric sites. Day hikes are popular in many areas of Malta. Mallieha, Dingli, Ghar Lapsi, Fawwara WArdija, various bays, and the southern coast with its fishing villages and Delimara Point are the places where you can enjoy your day hike.
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. The Ta Dglebi, Gordan Lighthouse, Hondoq ir-Rummient, and San Blas Valley are the other walking places in this part of Malta. This place provides endless possibilities and people have criss-crossed the tracks and lanes of this island. Another place ideal for a day’s hiking activity is Tiny Comino which is inhabited by only 15 people. It provides solitude and awesome views.
If you want to be alone during peak season then you can follow the farmers’ tracks from the village squares. There is much to discover from ancient farmhouses, wayside chapels, and spectacular seascapes
