“BEAUTIFUL VIEW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

A stroll to Hastings Gardens will provide you with a fantastic and unique view of Valletta and beyond. The Gardens themselves are quite pretty; however the views are the jewel.

“Fantastic views towards the centre of the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

There is some building work going on at the moment around the old city gate area, so access is not possible from that direction currently. The view from the gardens is amazing as you are so high up. You can see the back of Manoel Island and all the harbours on that side of Valletta, and on a clear day you can see Mdina. There are some interesting statues in the gardens and close up views of the ditch fortifications. Plenty of seats but nowhere to get a coffee.

“Alternate view to north of malta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is a good place to see the sunset and take some lovely pictures. It is difficult to acces at moment due to renovations on the new entrance to Valetta in time for the 2018 city of culture but worth the detour.

“Views worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Gardens in Valletta are not large compared with UK. Hastings Garden is well worth seeking out as the views from the walls are well worth seeing. Due to the building work going on in readiness for the Valletta being 2018 City of Culture, there is some work being carried out in the 'Ditches', but overall worth a visit.
