So after being disappointed in the Buskett Gardens (not worth going out of your way for) me and my partner went to the San Anton Gardens. We took dozens of pictures here of the flora and fauna. They have a small maze which is fun for children and playful adults. From the gardens you can reach the presidential palace which... More

As these Gardens were just over the road from our hotel, we spent a pleasant afternoon admiring the gardens and water features -a refreshing change from the busier,more bustling holiday resorts. The gardens were peaceful and we enjoyed visiting a small chapel near the Presidential Palace. A relaxing afternoon but I'm not sure it would be worth travelling here unless... More

I used to go and spend 2 hours around this garden and enjoy my canon camera. You will find a lot if things to experiment with. This Garden is also a great family place. Avoid very sunny days. Also a place that is good for pre wedding photography with a lot of fountains and green passage ways

Place where you can rest from the Maltese heat. Probably one of the most green places in Malta. And very relaxing.

The historic San Anton Gardens in Attard are an attraction in themselves with their formal baroque lay-out and ancient trees and shrubs. The various side sections offer areas where one can enjoy a quiet interval surrounded by greenery and the soothing sound of splashing fountains. The 17th Century Palace of San Anton offers another attraction to history buffs.

Lovely gardens easily accessible from the main road in front of the Corinith Hotel & 100 yards from bus stop. Mostly trees & shrubs with 2 fountains, one with swans and ducks swimming around and the other with dozens of turtles basking in the sunshine. The paths are easy to walk on and just follow each one to another garden... More

Very pleasant place to walk in the evening after a long hot day. Attached to the Presidents Palace, with a very good eatery across the road behind the Palace. Plenty for kids to do.
