GOLDEN BAY HIKE & RUN ca 10km | ca 120 min | The Tal MAJJISTRAL Natural Park, along the southwestern coast of Malta, is famous for it’s glorious views. This is what I want to you to experience: enjoy the early morning or the sunset while crossing rocky costal trails, dusty country roads and small hidden paths. I’m NOT taking you on a super challenging trail run, not al all. This is going to be a mixed route-experience where we alternate easy run with satisfying hiking moments. This experience is about ten kilometers long (10km) and will be completed in about 90 to 120 minutes depending on our pace. We will run at your favorite pace, no hurry and no rush. We will meet on Riviera park just a few meters away from the Riviera Bus Stop, which will be our start and finishing point . We will start with reaching the cliffs close to Tuffieha Watch Tower. From this point we will proceed all along the coast line till we reach Ghajn Znuber Observation Tower where we will turn back. Once we reach Riviera Park again we will descend to Tuffiieha Bay and watch the sun as it dives into the sea. Il the "good season" time and if weather is ok you can also have a swim (so bring your swimsuit and your towel) or you can enjoying a drink in one of the coolest beach bars in Malta.
