Start outside Popeye Village and walk down through the reserve, finishing in Golden Bay. Fantastic views. The ground was covered with wild flowers. Friendly visitor centre. Nice, not too strenuous walk.

This park is perfect for rambling and hiking on your own, or in guided walks that also offer opportunities for bird watching and photography. And in the summer they can offer guided snorkeling trips. Don't forget to visit the Center, it is really fantastic.

The park and its visitor centre are worthy of your visit. There are not too many natural open spaces left on Malta so this place deserves your support.

Try here Raina G, this site won't let me link you a website. You need to google the name Majjistral Park. By the way, I own a holiday flat but it's in Sliema should you need accommodation ;)
