What are the most spectacular roads in Malta?

Malta is an archipelago in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast. Located in the southern part of Europe, the roads in Malta offer unforgettable experiences. These routes will show you parts of the island that you might not have seen before. The country has a mostly rocky coastline with few sandy beaches, and through dozens of coastal drives, the Mediterranean Sea will offer you the best views.

One must-visit drive is the road to Dingli Cliffs. Situated in the Northern Region, the road leading to the cliffs, which is known as Triq Panoramika, is fully paved. It’s not an easy drive: it features narrow sections and steep gradients, with ramps reaching a maximum gradient of 12.1%. As you drive to Dingli Cliffs, which marks the highest point in Malta, you'll enjoy panoramic views of the sea. Keep in mind that it can get quite windy on some days.

Malta has had some serious money pumped into its infrastructure over recent years and that includes the roads. At just 27km long by 14km wide, Malta is easy to get around in just a weekend. If you really want only the highlights though, we've rounded up some of the most picturesque routes in the country.

Nestled on the western shores of Malta, close to the idyllic village of Dingli, the Dingli Cliffs proudly claim the title of the tallest elevation in the Maltese Islands, soaring at 252m (826 ft) above the sea level.

Located on the northern coast of the Maltese island of Gozo, the Xwejni Salt Pans are one of the highlights of the island.
