Malta and Gozo provide wonderful opportunities for walking. The islands have a range of enjoyable routes passing impressive historical, cultural, landscape and environmental features. The islands are quite compact so that on any one walk you can experience a variety of interesting sites and features. The Mediterranean climate, exotic flora and magnificent coastline contribute to a great walking experience. In addition, access to the start and end points (usually by public bus), is very easy.
We are keen to promote rambling on Malta and Gozo. To help you get most pleasure from the walks we offer the following books which include comprehensive maps and route descriptions. Click on the title for details and a sample of the books:
- Malta 10 Great Walks

These books have been written jointly by Jonathan Henwood and Emmet Mc Mahon, both of whom are environmental scientists with a close familiarity with the natural and built environment of Malta. The first three books above are available in paper and as eBooks. The Gozo Coastal Walk and Nature Walks of Malta & Gozo books are as yet only available as an eBook.
