5 Best Spots to Watch Sunset in Malta

THE THREE VILLAGES – WHAT TO SEE AND DO. Tiny but beautiful, the villages of Attard, Balzan and Lija hold many secrets within their landscaped gardens, narrow roads and majestic houses.

THE THREE VILLAGES – WHAT TO SEE AND DO

It’s hard to tell where one village ends and another begins, but that doesn’t mean that Malta’s famous Three Villages are insignificant. Their lush gardens – notably Villa Bologna’s – are the fruitful remnants of the basketsful of oranges that used to be shipped to Buckingham Palace for decades. Many Grand Masters of the Order of the Knights of St John chose to build their summer residences here. Today, the villages are no longer solely populated by stately homes and never ending gardens, but their beauty and history make them a site that is definitely worth going out of your way for.

There is something especially fulfilling in rambling around the entire coast of an island.

The Coastal Walks - Walking in Malta and Gozo

This is particularly true in respect of Malta and Gozo as the coastal routes take you past a wide variety of impressive features, both natural and manmade. We have published the following books describing the walks around the entire coast of both islands. The Malta Coastal Walk (click for Malta Coastal sample); andThe Gozo Coastal Walk (click for Gozo Coastal sample). Each coastal walk takes you around the entire island by a route that is interesting, safe, varied and very enjoyable. The walks are not a uniform sign-posted track but a combination of limestone paths, town pavements, minor country roads and some sections across open countryside.

Malta coastal walk - tower to tower

> (about 2.5km from Fort St Angelo to Fort Ricasoli) From the Birgu marina (on the west side of Fort St Angelo) it is best to walk gently uphill towards Victory Square, and thence up Main Gate Street. Although it is possible to exit via the Main Gate, a slightly shorter and more quaint route is through the Gate of Auvergne, close to the Post of Castille which is at the Eastern most end of Birgu's land front. Thence one crosses the ditch (moat) on a narrow foot bridge (watching out for dogs' vsiting cards). After that it is downhill to Kalkara bay, uphill through Kalkara and downhill again to Rinella bay.

Churches and Chapels of Malta & Gozo

I also happen to be Maltese, born on an island that was once said to be the 'Sacred Island of the Mediterranean' of old. I am also always fascinated with church buildings from cathedrals to wayside chapels. Having all this going for me, I decided, in my retirement days, to come out with a project about the churches and chapels of the Maltese Islands of all time and post it on my own website.
