Lovely well maintained gardens to walk around. Not huge, possibly not worth a detour to go to but if you have time then do! They are next to president house.

Lovely large, colourful and well laid out gardens.Fish ,various types of ducks/swans and turtles in the numerous ponds.Farm animals for the children to visit and also good play areas.Good food from the café which is also ridiculously cheap.Unbelievably no entrance fee.Well worth a 2-3 hour leisurely visit

The highlight of my visit to the San Antonia garden was the turtle/terrapin pond which is free to get in. Its a beautiful garden and there are plenty nice benches to sit on if you want to just sit there and relax and take it all in. Interestingly there are statues of King George a gift given to Malta by... More

Lovely, free garden with some beautiful trees, ponds with ducks, swans and Terrapins. Easy to get to from Valetta on bus 53. There are lots of areas of seating, in sun or shade and a cute little maze.

We visited the gardens on a wet morning whilst waiting for our room at the Corinthia Palace, and despite the showers, were very impressed by the size, layout and diversity of the gardens. They are beautifully maintained, and there is a surprise around every corner. I am sure it is worth a visit at any time of year.

San Anton gardens are set over a considerable area full of pathways, trees, flowers and fountains. It is a great place to visit on a winter day or a great alternative to the seaside on a hot summer day due to the many shades the trees create. The gardens have a serene atmosphere and kids will love running up and... More

Make sure you pop in if in the area. Its a pretty garden with lots of different trees, shrubs and flowers. Plenty of benches to sit and admire things and a few peacocks wandering about.

These gardens are well worth a visit. Easy to reach, the bus from Valletta stops just up the road.Formal gardens with water features and an Aviary.There is a tea roomand a kids area as well. The grounds have been used for filming for TV programms like Sinbad.

A fabulous place to see specimen trees, find a quiet corner and enjoy the quiet, say "Hi" to a Terrapin in the terrapin pool or chat with a cat.. Maybe watch the swans, a white pair or the shy black swans, and afterwards take a stroll to the President's Kitchen Garden for a lite bite and stroll around the vegetables.... More
