This trail is very quiet & un-touristy (maybe because we were early in the season). It's quite a steep walk up at first but there are plenty of things to see to break up the hike. There are useful little signs to explain what's there...More

Lovely walk among the trees ..it was nice and peaceful, good to get away from the noise and bustle of Malta.The only complaint was the amount of dog waste hard to avoid in places.

Hi Raina You'll find the trail just behind the Porto Azzurro Hotel. You walk up the street and find the start of the trail (stones & ground). Enjoy! Cat
