his guidebook describes 33 walks on Malta and its neighbouring islands of Gozo and Comino. Walks generally range from 3 to 17km, and include Valetta, heritage trails, coastal walks and explorations inland, including the 30km 'Victoria Lines' route between Mgarr and Bahar ic-Caghaq. Malta offers year-round walking.

This guidebook describes 33 half- and full day walks on the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino. Basking in the Mediterranean sunshine between Sicily and Africa, the islands have a colourful and complex history from the Neolithic and the Medieval to the present day. Malta may be known as a tourist destination but it also offer plenty of historic walks, stunningly beautiful and dramatic architecture and excellent scenery, especially around the cliffs and coastlines: highlights include the World Heritage Site of Old Valetta, historic buildings and landmarks of the many historical peoples of Malta=, and the idyllic circuit of Comino, smallest of the Maltese islands.

The routes in this guidebook range from 2.5-30km, beginning with a short heritage trail around the city of Valletta. Then follows a series of walks around the coastline of Malta, with a final few moving inland to explore the island's interior, before a description of the Heritage Trail around Mdina and Rabat. Spring is the best time for walking here: high summer can be too hot for strenuous walking, while winter is fine but can be rainy and even a little cold.

Walks on Gozo start with a heritage trail around Victoria, followed by a clockwise exploration of spectacular coastal walking that allows a complete circuit of the island. The final walk on Gozo wanders over a series of little hills further inland, while the last walk in the book might be the best of them all: a circuit around the lovely little island of Comino. The guidebook also gives details of accommodation, transport and tourist information.
