We used the Sunflower Malta walks book, Walk 8 – 5.9 miles, ascent 625 ft, nominally 2h 35m

We took the bus from Bugibba towards Targa Gap, and got off at the Rihana bus stop at Wiel l- Arkata

Gosh it is hot – 29 degrees C, but it was only 19 degrees in Italy yesterday!

There is no breeze and little shade, so even a slope is hard work.

How do the vines grow when it is so dry? It is only May but the crop are ready to cut
