Please do not step on the slopes - Ghajn Tuffieha

Climbing these slopes is very dangerous and critically increases the erosion process.

Please help us to protect the area by using the indicated path


About erosion: The archipelago of Malta is made of calcareous and clay rock formations and it is characterized by high coastal erosion. The clay has a softer consistency than the limestone. The power of the sea and the climatic conditions (mainly temperature, wind, humidity and exposure to the sun) act differentially on these rocks; in fact clays are being eroded faster than the limestone.

Sliding down along or climbing this clay slope induces the removal of clay sediments which fall downwards by gravity. These sediments are then removed by the sea.

Thank you for your collaboration.
