Itinerary

Expand All
1 Start Gozo.
An arrival transfer (including the ferry journey) is included from Malta Luqa Airport to the hotel in Gozo. Those who wish to take advantage of this transfer will be met at the airport by our taxi and taken to the ferry terminal. From here the crossing to Gozo is approximately 25 minutes, and from Gozo ferry terminal you will be transferred for the remaining 10 minute drive to the hotel. The evening is at your leisure to settle in and unpack.
2 Coastal walk from Mgarr port to the narrow creek of Mgarr ix-Xini.
Mgarr is Gozo's port, full of traditional and colourful luzzu fishing boats and dominated by the 18th Century Fort Chambray, built by the Knights of St John. The path from here hugs the coast as far as the narrow creek of Mgarr ix-Xini, where Turkish raiders landed in 1551 - the perfect place for a picnic and swim. From here you follow an old mule track up through the hotel's rocky grounds with fine views across to Malta, stopping to explore the remains of a Copper Age temple and Neolithic dolmen.
3 Walk via Basilica Ta' Pinu, a Baroque church and stunning cliffs of the north coast.
The north-western corner of the island is only accessible on foot, along easy farm tracks. The first stop is the remarkable neo-Romanesque basilica Ta' Pinu, a huge national shrine built on the site of a miracle in 1923. Your route then leads through unique ravine-like wieds to Gharb with its stunning Baroque church (1699) and traditional stone houses. The final stretch takes you along the striking cliffs of the north coast where you are rewarded with fantastic views across Gozo's famous salt pans. Two walking options: 3.5hr, distance 12km/7.5mi or 4hr, distance 14km/9mi.
4 Hike to Xlendi bay.
The cliffs near Sannat are the highest and most dramatic cliffs on Gozo and in late spring they are alive with Mediterranean shearwaters. The route takes you past breathtaking views towards Comino and Malta and down through tamarisk trees to the gorgeous Xlendi Bay. Then it's up through the terraced fields, bright with poppies and fields of gladioli cultivated in rows like Provencal lavender. Two walking options: 2.5hr, distance 9km/5.5mi or 3hr, distance 10km/6mi.
5 Free day; optional visit to Victoria or Ramla Beach.
Today you could perhaps take a ride on one of Gozo's quirky buses to Xaghra to start your morning, as you head towards the Ggantija Tombs, a massive free-standing temple of 6m-high monoliths, and Calypso's Cave. Lunch on Ramla Bay, undeniably the best beach on the island, then perhaps head on to the lively capital of Victoria for the afternoon. The bustling market square, used as a meeting place since Roman times, is dominated by the medieval citadel, with spectacular views over the whole island. But the real charm lies in the maze of tiny back streets clustered around the Basilica, with carved stone balconies, flower-decked doorways and statuettes of the Madonna in street-corner niches.
6 Punic burial site and the Inland Sea.
The walk today takes you to the west coast and the fascinating Punic burial site at Wardija Point. There's a mythical feeling here, like being on the edge of the world. Narrow stone-walled lanes lead down to bamboo groves and to Fungus Rock (named after the 'magic' plant which grew there) and the Inland Sea.
7 Qala to Nadur via Dahlet Qorrot harbour and the hidden beach at San Blas Bay.
Starting from Qala, it's an easy stroll to Dahlet Qorrot, a tiny harbour with gaily coloured boat houses. Then it's on through fragrant lemon groves, vineyards and past fig and peach trees to San Blas Bay, a hidden beach with gorgeous ochre-coloured sand. Your final stop is Nadur, where the spectacular views at the end of the day are a great finale to your week.
8 End Gozo.
The tour ends at our hotel after breakfast, however a departure transfer back to Malta Luqa Airport by road and ferry is included for those who wish to take advantage of this.
