The next part, from Marsalforn to Ramla l-Hamra, was the hardest part of today’s walk. Most of the group walked beneath the cliff, with the sea on the left-hand side, sometimes just a few inches away. All the Gozitans we met while scouting the walk had told us that it was not possible to walk along this stretch of the coast. In fact, part of the walk is not possible if the sea is rough, and some parts of the ledges are very slippery. Still, we walked all the way to Ramla l-Hamra, with the last section mostly along boulder scree beneath crumbling clay cliffs.
A small part of the group elected to use the safer, although still difficult, route, along the top of the cliff, then down to Ramla.
At Ramla we were met by Lino Bugeja with a car full pizza ordered from a well-known Nadur bakery. It took quite a while for all the ramblers to arrive, in small groups, tired but satisfied to have made it.
After a longish break at Ramla, we struck inland to make our way back to Ghasri. We walked for a short distance along
