I have just returned from a two week holiday in Malta and found the Sunflower guide invaluable. I had heard that people either love or hate Malta and without this guide I would probably have been in the latter category as first impressions on the journey from the airport to the hotel were not favourable. However,being based in Bugibba, every single walk in the book was accessible by the excellent bus network. We actually completed 17 of the walks in the book and visited areas well away from the tourist trail, meeting very few other walkers. OK, so inland Malta cannot compare with the beauty of Britain's National Parks but it has its own charm and the coastline is absolutely stunning. On three occasions we went over to Gozo which is especially beautiful. By the end of two weeks I had grown to love Malta!
I'd just like to add that, as GPS settings were quoted in the guide, I took mine with me and found it really useful for keeping track of walking times and distances - also for checking our position and direction of travel when in doubt and would advise anyone else to do the same.Malta, Gozo and Comino (Landscapes)
