Natural beauty and treasures to consider when buying a property in Malta

The Maltese Islands offer various natural spots to be explored and admired. Much of the countryside is dotted with the world's oldest free-standing structures.

Due to the undoubtedly great advantage of fair weather, the Maltese Islands lend themselves well to outdoor activities.

The rain brings the landscape to life with an astonishing variety of wild flowers and plants. The Maltese Islands are green and lush with fields full of vegetables and waysides carpeted with fennel, clover, wild iris and myrtle.

Valletta and the Three Cities, with their formidable fortifications, the rugged cliffs and secluded bays around Malta, Gozo and Comino… they all look very different.

The Islands offer walkers some of the most stunning views anywhere in the Mediterranean, dramatic cliffs plunging into waves, the rocky, scrubland of the garrigue or hidden, lush valleys,you'll come across mysterious prehistoric sites, medieval chapels and secluded palaces of the Knights.

Gozo is extremely popular with both locals and tourists alike for its serenity and quiet beauty. Often referred to as “the land where time stood still", Malta's sister Island is excellent walking country.

One of the best walks is along Dingli Cliffs. It's truly spectacular to watch the sun set over the sea from the highest area in Malta where the land falls away at a spectacular 220m height. These cliffs offer remarkable coastal views.

The island of Comino was once reportedly the hideout of pirates and smugglers and is only 2.5km by 1.5km in size, so it's ideal for a good day's hiking and the ultimate in solitude and views.
