I am 74 with poor knees and wondered what the terrain was like in Malta for getting about.

1. Re: Terrain.

A lot of Malta is fairly flat but there are very hilly parts .

Valletta has a long mainly flat main street but the side streets that reach down to the sea are quite steep.

Sliema and St Julians are easily walkable as are Bugibba and Qawra .

There is more than enough flat areas to suit you.

Many people with walking difficulties , including wheelchair users come to enjoy all Malta has to offer.

Most of the resort towns have flat areas along the coastline, but if you venture a few yards inland it can quickly become quite steep. Choose accommodation on or near a coastal promenade if possible.

If you decide a location we can advise you further. Similarly, if there are certain places you hope to visit, we should be able to tell you how accessible they will be.
