Għadira Nature Reserve

Għadira Nature Reserve

Explore Malta’s wildlife with your kids.

The Għadira Nature Reserve is one of Malta’s few safe havens for birds. As a protected area, birds may stop to rest at the Għadira Nature Reserve during migration season. As many birds are victims of hunting, having a protected area for migrating birds is very important, not only for the birds but the Maltese environment as well. The Għadira Nature Reserve is a great place for kids to learn about birds, their natural habitat and their right to fly freely.

The Reserve hosts a beautiful combination of biodiversity and nature. The area not only offers solace for migrating birds but is also home to a variety of flora and fauna, some of which is rare and endangered. The Reserve offers a great opportunity to educate yourself and your family about nature firsthand, with wild birds and plants within easy reach. 

On your visit, you and your family can roam the reserve freely. However, volunteers are on hand to accompany you on your trek as well as to provide any information you may require about the birds and the reserve. 

The Għadira Nature Reserve is open to the public during the day from November to May, and entrance is free. 

You can find the Għadira Nature Reserve across the road from Għadira bay, Malta’s busiest beach, which makes it a perfect place to visit before or after a day at the beach.
