Just go for a walk slash climb and see the Mediterranean from a new perspective. You will need to wear good sturdy shoes and expect to get sweaty. Enjoy.

If you are an avid hiker, you will love the Mediterranean Steps. The views are incredible and you will get a nice workout. Those fearful of heights might find this trail uncomfortable.

We heard of these by coincidence, but I'm very glad we did. This was one of our favourite spots and I would recommended it to anyone who loves nature.

Sorry. I really cannot see why anyone would give this 'attraction' 5 dots! Rubble on a steep hill. You must REALLY like walking!

My advice is to start at the top from O'Haras battery and go down. Only come up from the Jews Gate if you want a really good work out!

We walked UP, choosing to limit the knee-pounding of a descent. The walk has been worked on; the most precipitous parts are safely fenced, and although it does feel a bit exposed in places, if you have done any hill walking in -say- north wales,...More

You must be physically fit and wear stout shoes and plenty of water. Take your time and stop to take in the views. Start early on a cloudless day. Enjoy.

The walk to the Steps begin at Jews Gate which is near the end of Engineer Road. There is a charge for access to the upper rock reserve, but it will be well worth it if the weather is fine. Take plenty of water and use some... More
