This is a terrific ‘runseeing’ tour of several historical sites at the southern end of Malta, also featuring some great coastal views. It’s nearly all on roads with good sidewalks.
A good starting point is the parking lot near the Blue Wall and Grotto Viewpoint. Start with a short jaunt north on Triq Wied Iż-Żurrieq to a viewpoint, then back south to the Blue Grotto and Sciutu Tower (great views!). Retrace your steps, and then run back up the hill, and turn LEFT, heading west on Triq il-Wied for 2 km to Haġar Qim Park, where you’ll see several archeological sites, including the path to Ħaġar Qim, Mnajdra, and the Tal-Ħamrija Coastal Tower. Retrace your steps, but use Triq Hagar Qim to Triq taz-Zelliega for make the route a loop.
