While walking around exploring is a given, and doesn’t require much energy, there are plenty of countryside walks and hikes that you can spend your day going.

In Malta, areas that make excellent day hikes, are Mellieħa, Dingli, Għar Lapsi, Fawwara, Wardija, all the North and the various bays, and the southern coast with its fishing villages and Delimara Point.

Gozo in its entirety is also an excellent walking country.
