[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Manoel island is an interesting and strangely eerie little island inside a narrow bay in Malta. Manoel island is situated right between Valletta and Sliema, two very densely populated towns in Malta.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”1785″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]Manoel island has an old abandoned quarantine building on it, and a few other abandoned government buildings that are in more or less ruins now. There are also some green spots, which is rare for Malta.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1781″ img_size=”full”][vc_single_image image=”1783″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Mama took me, Pompe, to Manoel island to explore. Guess if I was excited?! The first thing we saw was a whole lot of birds in an informal little bird zoo. VERY interesting!
We passed a few small pine trees and I got to play with the pine cones. I set them off rolling down the street and chased after them. And at the waterfront there were so many fun things to sniff!
We spent half a day wandering around the island, looking at the broken down old buildings wondering what had happened there in the past and taking gorgeous pictures of Valletta. Manoel Island is a great outing if you are in Malta.
After this fantastic walk, we found quite a fun party at the only bar on Manoel Island.
Note from mama: Bring water as there is no place to buy water, except from a vending machine at the gates where the guards are.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1782″ img_size=”full”][vc_single_image image=”1784″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Also, I believe you are not allowed to have your dog off leash on the island, even if you see many dogs off leash and it’s a safe place for them to run around and explore as there is no traffic on most of the island.
