2nd to 9th May 2015                    Map of Malta                                          All photos by Hetty

Malta is only 17 miles long by about 9 miles across at its widest, but it takes longer than expected to travel around, especially by bus.

It has a rocky coastline, high cliffs and scattered sandy beaches. It has hills, but the maximum height on the island is only about 250m, 820ft, at the Dingli Cliffs.

We stayed at Bugibba, near shops and the bus station. It is good to get on the bus at the beginning of the journey, as you should get a seat.

In date order:
