8 Autumn Walks To Love & Try In the Maltese Islands


Malta isn’t always associated with walking, but the lack of exploration among the Islands misses a huge part of the countryside that makes Malta so stunning. There are some great walks where you could even take a stroll by the secluded coastlines, trek the dramatic cliff tops, or ramble the rugged countryside.


These walks are perfect for an autumn Sunday afternoon as the temperatures dip slightly – just enough to make it extra pleasant to be outside!

On this walk, you will get the chance to wander around Malta’s only woodland at Buskett. Peep the cart ruts, Roman quarries, pass through the traditional village of Siggiewi, and much more!
