Best Hikes to Take in Malta

From Mellieha all the Way to Wied iz-Zurrieq


Who says you cannot enjoy Malta during the winter season? Up until spring, Malta’s weather is perfect for going on hikes and walks since the sweltering heat has not kicked in yet. Although Malta’s countryside is not visible from all towns and villages, there are some breath-taking spots if you simply take the time to look for them.


Here are some of our favourite spots for you to take a hike (literally!) in Malta.


Tas-Silg Walk

This walk is between two famous fishing villages of Marsascala and Marsaxlokk. It’s ideal for anyone who wants to take a less intensive walk since this is about 7km long. You can start from the beautiful and colourful village of Marsascala and walk all the way through the countryside to Marsaxlokk. Once you reach your end point, take a coffee and relax in the wonderful fishing village of Marsaxlokk.
