Had a lovely afternoon walking to the Ta’ Ċiantar (Għajn Żnuber) tower. Lovely views toward Gozo across the blue seas. The area is littered with beehive structures called ‘girnas’, which are farmers’ shelters. Lots of lovely flowers everywhere. Definitely worth a visit.

At the edge of Golden Bay and just past the Malta National Scout Centre, lies the Majjistral national park. Wild natural beauty, historical site, well worth a visit

A rambling walk in one of the last unspoilt areas of Malta. Wild at times, with cliffs and bracing views. Good for biking, and nature,

Start outside Popeye Village and walk down through the reserve, finishing in Golden Bay. Fantastic views. The ground was covered with wild flowers. Friendly visitor centre. Nice, not too strenuous walk.

This park is perfect for rambling and hiking on your own, or in guided walks that also offer opportunities for bird watching and photography. And in the summer they can offer guided snorkeling trips. Don't forget to visit the Center, it is really fantastic.

Try here Raina G, this site won't let me link you a website. You need to google the name Majjistral Park. By the way, I own a holiday flat but it's in Sliema should you need accommodation ;)
