Beautiful walled garden. Divided into lots of different areas. Some unusual trees and plants (luckily labelled). Lots of pathways leading to fountains, statues or buildings.

Amazing colours and botanical plants.
Turtles in the fountain, wander peacock.

Highly recommend. You will need more than an hour if you use the hop on hop off bus.

Nice peaceful garden, not much to see this time of year and wouldn't have travelled especially to see it but ideal if you're staying nearby

A place to find shade in a lovely setting. Peacocks and ducks and pigeons. Plenty of seating under tall trees. Spent the morning there. Bus 54 from Valletta gets you within 5 minutes walk of the garden

Unfortunately August is just too dry a month to get the full splendour of this garden. Seeing photos of the Spring though I would love to come in visit in April or May. Such colours everywhere, compared to the grey and browns on our visit. Still worth a little wander around though and to see the peacocks and terrapins enjoying the shade provided by the huge trees. We were even shown a tree over 500 years old! It was HUGE!

These gardens stand a part of the splendor of Malta. We visited in early May, a time when the blossoms were few, but the garden is mainly of exotic species of trees. It holds a huge collection of trees.
I recommend a stop to see the gardens ... entrance is free!

THESE gardens deserve their stop on Malta's popular northern hop-on-hop-off bus route.
I liked them so much that I visited twice, once alone and once with a friend who was equally taken with them.
They were built as part of a private residence for the French knight, Antoine de Paule, but became a magisterial palace shortly after he was chosen to become the Grand Master of the Order of St John. Today the site is the official residence of the President of Malta.
The gardens are basically a very large oblong with paths all round the perimeter and at intervals down the centre and across the gardens to allow visitors to get the most out of the displays without ever losing track of where they are.
Features include several fountains and ponds, aviaries, statuary, lovely trees and some very noisy peacocks strutting regally about.
Some of the trees date back to the early 17th century when they were planted for the original palace gardens.
Flowers carpet several areas while the ponds are not short of life either as terrapins swayed through the water or jostled for position in the sunniest basking points.
The gardens are used for a variety of events and while we were there the Malta All-Breed Rabbit Club held an event with dozens of carefully groomed rabbits of all shapes and sizes on display.
There are toilets on site while a kiosk at the entrance offers visitors everything from cold drinks to snacks.
I would recommend anyone to visit San Anton Gardens which are an oasis of green on this rocky island.
