Wardija


Wardija is the limestone ridge nearest to the Great Fault known as the Victoria Lines which almost bisects the island and runs from Fomm ir-Rih in the west until it peters out in Bahar ic-Caghaq.  

Wardija Ridge is a very scenic plateau and is sparsely populated making it an ideal place for hiking as there is lots of flora and fauna, has recently become a protected area. The landscape plateaus support important garigue communities, a type of low, soft-leaved scrubland ecoregion and plant community in the Mediterranean forests and woodlands characterised by rare species.

Other levels of protection have been given to the three valley systems in the scheduled areas, the upper reaches of the watercourse of Il-Wied ta' San Martin and the southern part of the promontory at the area known as L-Argentier.

Wardija forms part of the town of St. Paul’s Bay, a modern tourist area with important traditions, archeology and legends relating to the shipwreck of the Apostle St. Paul, that took place on the coast within the area in 60AD. St. Paul is thought to have brought Christianity on the Maltese Islands.

Wardija buildings include wedding halls with a residential area being mainly for the Maltese upper-class. Accommodation offers self-catering apartments overlooking panoramic views of the sea and the countryside. It is the perfect place for hiking and to get in touch with the nature.
