(4.4/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Majjistral Park in the Maltese Islands - A place where wild nature, labyrinthine boulder screes and aromatic garigue blend in with the rural nature of the area with its small cultivated parcels of red earth, kilometres of traditional dry stone walls and corbelled stone huts. The natural, geological and archaeological heritage features are set amidst a unique landscape with far reaching views.

Established in 2007, the National park extends along the coast from ir-Ramla tal-Mixquqa (Golden Bay) to Il-Prajjet (Anchor Bay) l/o Mellieha.
