If you’re a fan of sunsets, then you will love sunsets in Malta. I have an entire section dedicated to Maltese sunsets, so be sure to check that out. Today I’m bringing you one of the lesser impressive I’ve witnessed, but still one that was super pretty and made me glad I was 15 minutes early to my meeting.
When I’m alone, I walk so fast that I inevitably get to my destination as a sweaty mess, but this annoying habit meant I was super early for a meeting recently, so I stopped and chilled out for a while, watching the sun begin to set from the Independence Gardens in Sliema. This is a really pretty little garden, right on the seafront. It’s got greenery, a cat village (yup, we love those in Malta) and it’s the perfect spot to sunbathe in the summer and watch sunsets in the winter.
I think I actually prefer sunsets when they’re a little cloudy, it gives some nice texture, dimension and unpredictability to the whole show. Colours can change in an instant, light can be thrown here, there and everywhere, with awesome rays shooting from behind the clouds.
I wasn’t the only one who had stopped especially to see the golden sunlight glistening on the water. A few people were laying on the rocks, clearly after a day of relaxation, whilst some others had stopped on their way to somewhere, just to watch a while.
If you’re missing greenery and beauty in Malta, then this isn’t a forest, it’s not paradise, but it’s a gorgeous little slice of each, slap bang in the middle of some fairly built up towns and absolutely worth a few hours of relaxing wandering, swimming and taking in the view.
