Best things to do in Malta

Scenic Lookout
“Because of the stunning views of the northern part of our islands. For avid hikers: if one were to continue along the scenic Victoria Lines, you will come face-to-face with a steep inclined road that leads down to Bahar Ic-Caghaq. Ghar San Brinkat, said to be Gharghur's first settlement, is located along the face of the cliff, overlooking this route. Definitely worth a visit.”

“A cheap ticket usually gets you underground through huge areas of war shelters and ancient catacombs, once, gratefully above ground, scan your ticket (don't lose it) into the museum, where a crazy collection of glorious artifacts is slung into side rooms with other treasures better displayed.”

“ This small privately owned museum in Xagħra Gozo was originally set up by Susan Lowe in Devon, England in the 1970's. It started with one doll and today it boasts toys from all around the world. The name Pomzkizillious comes from Edward Lear who made up this word to describe the coastal scenery of Gozo while visiting the Island in 1866. (Edward Lear is a world famous illustrator of natural history books, writer & illustrator of children's verse and a landscape painter who visited Malta on many occasions). ”

“n the fields west of Sant’ Anton chapel, south west of Ix-Xagħra, three blocks of stone stand on edge. A scatter of prehistoric sherds (pottery) around suggests that they are the remains of a small temple, as was confirmed by excavation by Ashby and Bradley back in 1911. A further dig in 1961 showed that there had been a village on the site before the temple was built, as was also the case with several of the temples in Malta: Mġarr, Skorba and Kordin III”
