The gardens are beautiful all the year round but if you go in the spring or summer they are fantastic

Visited these gardens in the grounds of the presidential palace in malta during November 14. Lovely surprise. Free entry to a few acres of typically maltese gardens with a very good restaurant/cafe. Small pets corner including deer, ponies and llama. A great place to have a relaxing stroll on a warm day. Great for adults and children.

I have regular visitors to Malta. Some of the younger people want to sunbathe and swim and that is fine. Others like to explore the culture and relax and these gardens are ideal for them. Great trees, lovely swans, fountains/ponds, etc. Especially with the kitchen gardens at the top beyond the Palace itself.

very well worth a visit to these amazing gardens. Being a local, it's always been a place where one can definitely fine silence and peace to relax. The Palace is magnificent and full of history and tradition.

The gardens and villa are stunning. If you cross the road at the end of the walk through from gardens there's a lovely play area with restaurant and an amazing collection of animals.

Extensive botanical gardens with many specimen trees. The ponds are all occupied - carp or koi, goldfish, swans both black and white, ducks and best of all, turtles! A squad of friendly well-fed cats keep the undergrowth vermin free. Orange trees, pomegranate trees, fountains, shady walkways - a lovely place to spend an hour or two.

As anyone who'se been to Malta in the summer can testify - it gets very hot. A welcome retreat from the harsh stone and heat are the Presidential Palace Gardens at San Anton in Attard. Over 400 years old and established during the time of the Knights of St John, the gardens are a mature example of varying flora and... More

The gardens are really pretty and well looked after. The paths are a bit uneven, but adds character to the place:) little paths go off to little pools of turtles or ducks.
