Last Sunday I went out for a walk with two of my grandchildren and their dog Benji. We sought and found a lovely location which I would suggest to anyone looking for new spots around the Island: Migra l-Ferha…..It is a place of wild natural beauty where it is possible to detach oneself almost completely from the signs of busy human activity and immerse oneself in a timeless landscape which has changed little across the millennia.

Most of the western coast of Malta is made up of high cliffs very often plunging sheer into the deep blue Mediterranean. There is history attached to Migra l-Ferha . According to a local legend, Count Roger the Norman landed here in 1091 with an army of men and freed the island from the hated Moors. Of course, no commander worth his salt would anchor his ships beneath such inhospitable cliffs and then lead an army of men and horses up the steep slopes. So although we know that Count Roger did come to Malta in 1091 he must have landed in a much safer place.

Our departure point started at an area known as ‘Tal-Fiddien’. The spot is notorious for its tranquil green fields which shimmer in Spring due to natural fresh water speeding through the limestone layer. If you are a tourist taking this walk, look out for these landmarks: The 16th century church of St. Martin: The church was built by Count Navarra and is today at the center of folklore and religious activities during the feast of St. Martin held in November. Then there is the ‘Qlejgha’ plateau, a crescent-shaped limestone plateau about 170 meters above sea level. Another location is Wied il-Buzbiez: Literally translated to “the Valley of Fennel” filling the surroundings with the pleasant smell of the highly aromatic fennel herb and finally a spectacular view of Filfla: now a protected natural reserve.

Our chosen route was generally easy to walk yet caution is advised in areas containing cliffs especially in winter months with higher wind speeds. Standard walking or hiking gear is sufficient for anyone taking this trek. This walk kept all of us active, happy and healthy. At first we thought that walking Benji was going to be frustrating, but he gladly joined in our adventure. After all Benji is a Brittany dog, very energetic and versatile, regarded as a hunter dog.

Some added information. Migra Ferha is a unique and unspoiled DIVE and it is only for the experienced and very fit because of the 150 steps that are to be taken in consideration if one wants to reach the entry/exit point below the Dingli Cliffs. Both the start as well as the end-point of the walk are accessible through public transport.

We came down here to look at a Game of Thrones filming location. It was certainly an interesting drive through the countryside, and online articles did little to help find the spot. We were happy to finally find the spot, there is a bit of a car park that lets you know you have arrived. Nice to walk along the cliffs, and such a rugged coastline was quite unique.

Went there for an hour or more, watching the sun fall below he horizon. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The coast is dramatic but I didn’t walk far, just watched the waves and the sun.

A perfect venue for trekking along the cliffs edge to Ras-Id-Dawwara. Beautiful Gorge leading down towards the sea with steps cut in the rock. Possible to swim down the bottom if sea is not rough.

I recommend this place to people who like hiking for long distances. You will find there natural beauty and wonderful scenery and there will not be as many tourists as in other places in Malta
