Kuncizzjoni Chapel to Ghajn Tuffieha Bay

Kuncizzjoni Chapel to Ghajn Tuffieha Bay

The start For this walk we met at the end point, Ghajn Tuffieha Bay car park. We then got a taxi to the start at Kuncizzjoni Chapel near Bahrija. From the Kuncizzjoni Chapel, we followed a path running alongside the Victoria Lines. The Victoria Lines run across the top of Malta from the West to the East coast. There were stunning views the whole way on this walk and a fairly clear path to follow most of the time. You…

Walk 8 – Dingli Cliffs to Bahrija

Walk 8 – Dingli Cliffs to Bahrija

A very hairy walk  This walk I did in the wrong order. I didn’t do it straight after walk 7 but I left it out and came back to it. Partly because it sounded very challenging and partly because it was quite remote so I wasn’t sure about how I’d arrange transport. So I’m now going back and completing this missing section of the coastal walk with two walking companions – Sarah and Antonia.   This coast is particularly wild and…

Walk 13 – St Paul’s Bay to Bahar ic-Caghaq

Walk 13 – St Paul’s Bay to Bahar ic-Caghaq

For the first time, I was doing an afternoon walk rather than a morning one. This was down to logistics as it was an easier time for me to get dropped off by. I had planned on walking from St Paul’s all the way to the end of my coastal walk (Spinola Bay). However, I decided whilst driving there that it would be too far (and too hot). Although St Paul’s is quite a big and busy village in Malta…

Walk 12 – Ghadira bay to St Paul’s Bay

Walk 12 – Ghadira bay to St Paul’s Bay

This walk took place a week after the last walk so I’m really racing on now to complete the full trip around the island. Word has got out and this time I had a record four friends joining me on the walk – Sarah, Michaela, Lynn and newbie Claire. It turned out that the day after we did this walk the schools closed due to Covid-19 so we were very happy we managed to fit this in whilst we could.  I…

Walk 10 – Golden Bay to Paradise Bay

Walk 10 – Golden Bay to Paradise Bay

  For this walk, Sarah joined me again and only a week after the previous walk – that is a record. It was going to be a bit of a race against time as Sarah had to get back for the school pick up at 12.45 and we had a 12k walk ahead of us. But I’m always up for a challenge. We met early at Paradise bay – the endpoint – which is right at the top of the…

There’s a lake in Malta?

There’s a lake in Malta?

I heard a rumour that there’s a lake, or lakes even, in Malta. But where in Malta could they be? I’ve not seen so much as a small stream on the island.  I’ve been meaning to check these mysterious lakes out for a while and finally on a free day this week Taco and I headed off. I wasn’t sure of the route so I set the satnav. Blimey – 23 minutes to get there. Funny how that seems quite…
