The start of the walk is on the road from Siggiewi to Ghar Lapsi. We park our cars at the junction with the last road on the right just before the Dar Tal-Providenza homes.
Following a narrow lane, we come to a scenic road with nice views of Filfla. Passing the Annunciation Chapel, which has an underground spring, we walk up a rough track that wind uphill. At the top we find the remains of a Bronze Age village where we can see a number of 3000-year-old silos, dug in the ground for the storage of grain and possibly water. We meander on the garigue for quite some time and set our site on the Laferla Cross in the distance.  From here on the route is downhill as we make our way back to our cars.

We walk away from the village, up a narrow track to the top of the hill, where we turn right onto the Delimara road. We pass the fort, (dated 1881) and the lighthouse and follow the low cliffs to the foreshore towards Delimara Point. Turning north, we follow the east coast of the peninsula passing salt pans and many bays until we reach “Il-Hofra z-Zghira”. We leave the coast and climb to the top of the ridge where we turn left along the tarmac road that takes us back to where we left our cars.

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.
