Hi explorers 🙂
Today I want to share with you one of the most beautiful trekking experiences that I had thanks to the Trekking Group “Experience: adventures and more”, that you can join as well, participating is free and children and dogs are always welcomed.
In this exploration we’ll experience the white rocky South East coast of Malta and we will walk a circular trail of 11 kilometres.
It takes about two and a half hours, starting in the morning at 9.00 from St. Thomas Bay in Marsascala and coming back at about midday.
Ready to go?
Let’s go then 😉
In the pictures below you can see the lovely St Thomas Bay which is still contesting with St Paul’s Bay, the arrival of the Apostle Paul in Malta during the Romans in 60 AD.
They bay was really quiet that morning, a sign that was not Summer, as it becomes a popular swimming spot for locals and tourists in the high season.
Have a look… at the small pier there is someone who wants to say “hello“!!!
At the end of the bay we took the narrow path heading straight and uphill across the Delimara Peninsula. The magnificent limestone cliffs can easily remind me of the famous White Cliffs of Dover, albeit a slightly smaller version.
The erosion of the water, wind and time lhave eft clear signs on the cliffs, which make this view really breathtaking!
In the pictures, you can see:
The lighthouse at Delimara, in the distance.
The Roman Saline
The bays along the coast: Slug’s Pool, Il-Qala, Peter’s Pool.
Also, you can immerse yourself in a beautiful wild nature full of flowers and endemic plants, like the Maltese salt tree, sea lavander and capers.
Keep in mind when you will walk along the circular coast stretch of Delimara, that it is important to keep the chimney as a reference point.
Time to take the inland path back towards St. Thomas Bay.
Have you seen how beautiful is the landscape of the three bays?
Birzebbuga, Marsaxlokk and Marsascala and behind them the village of Zejtun.
It’s clear from here how Zejtun is raised above the sea and why since ancient times, was the most populated village in the south-east of Malta, thanks to its position as a viewpoint of the three bays.
Hope you enjoyed the walk with us guys and let me know if you have visited
the Delimara Peninsula 😉
This is a little memory that I’m sharing with you, a picture with my Mum and my Granny, who came to visit me in Malta for the first time last year and I brought her to see the Delimara Lighthouse, as she is a constant light for me!
