o Transport provided

The coach drops us close to the Mellieha Bay Hotel. We pass through the entrance of the hotel and soon take a path to the left and immediately right up a surfaced ramp into the trees. At the “Y” junction of two paths bear right which brings us down to a small parking area. Pass through the hotel barrier and at the bottom of the road turn left. Continue along the path to the small pretty bay of Tal-Imgharrqa which we skirt round, but we follow a narrow path just below the road which meanders along the cliff, through trees, until we reach the small chapel of Tal-Madonna. When we reach the Ramla tat-Torri we leave the road and walk across two sandy beaches. At the end of the second beach turn left and up between the boathouses to Armier Bay and Ramla Bay where our transport awaits us.

The coach will drop us off outside St. Matthew’s Church and Il-Maqluba on the outskirts of Qrendi. We take the road to the right of the Chapel and walk slightly uphill where we can soon admire the view towards Wied iz-Zurrieq.  After passing the Lourdes Fireworks factory we turn left where we see Filfla directly ahead.  On our right we can see the remnants of the only double-faced sundial on the Maltese Islands.  After crossing the Siggiewi to Wied-Iz-Zurrieq road, we follow a wide track which runs parallel to Wied Hoxt.  After a while we turn south, go over the shallow hill and soon turn towards the west where we can enjoy lovely views towards Filfla.  Of particular interest is the beautiful arch in the sea near the (recently callapsed) Niffied cave.  We continue towards the Knights' tower where we have our break while enjoying uninterrupted views towards Filfla.  Soon after resuming our walk we pass the Congreve memorial which was erected to the memory of Sir Walter Norris Congreve, Governor of Malta, who was buried at sea between here and Filfla.  Skirting round the south side of the Mnajda Temples we make our way up to the Misqa Tanks – these are old water reservoirs dug by the temple people.  We walk up the causeway and around the perimeter of Hagar Qim to find our transport waiting in the car park
