Itinerary and Duration

 

  • Hondoq ir-Rummien – Qala (15 mins)

One of Gozo’s charms, a small sandy beach with clear waters, enchanted by stunning views of Comino and Malta.

 

  • Ta’ Kenuna Tower & Botanical Garden – Nadur (45 mins)

Next, the driver will take you to the village of Nadur, where the famous grotesque carnival is held every year in February. You will pass through the Nadur Belvedere, on the way to Ta’ Kenuna Tower. The tower was built in the British era and was used to pass on signals to ships and other posts via a telegraphy link between Gozo and Malta. The driver will stop you here to visit the tower and the botanical garden that surrounds the tower. Here you can find a number of plants native to the Maltese Islands.

 

  • Calypso’s Cave – Xaghra (15 mins)

Small cave overlooking the golden red sands of Ramla Bay. Legend has it that this is the same cave referred to by Homer in The Odyssey where the nymph goddess Calypso kept Odysseus as a prisoner of love for seven years.

 

  • Xwejni Salt Pans – Marsalforn (15 mins)

Beautifully designed in geometric patterns, 3km along the coast in Marsalforn, the place where most locals get their table salt from.  

 

  • Wied il-Mielah – Gharb (30 mins)

The Arch at Wied il-Mielah is the new attraction following the fall of the famous Azure Window. One can also witness here the magnificent coastal views the island has to offer.

 

  • Ta’ Gurdan Lighthouse – Ghasri (30 mins)

The driver will stop you at the bottom of the hill near the lighthouse, which overlooks the traditional small village of Ghasri. There is a stunning 360 degrees panoramic view from the top. If you’re lucky to find the lighthouse attendant there, he may even allow you to take a look inside, and perhaps climb the spiral staircase to the top of the lighthouse.

 

  • Ta’ Pinu Shrine – Gharb (30 mins)

Famously known for the miracles attributed to the grace of Our Lady of The Assumption to whom the previous chapel was dedicated. People from all over the world visit the shrine for offerings and blessings. The newly built church, built around the old chapel, is a splendour on its own with sculptures and craftsmanship in Maltese stone, also with mosaic walls outside of the church. A series of 14 marble statues representing the Via Crucis or Way of the Cross run up the hill opposite the church. More time can be given here to climb up the hill and enjoy the view from the top.

 

  • Dwejra Tower, Fungus Rock, Inland Sea – San Lawrenz (1 hr)

There’s a lot happening in this area. The driver will drop you here to explore the area on foot. This is the location where the beautiful Azure Window stood prior to her fall during a storm in March 2017. This is also the famous location from the Game of Thrones’ Dothraki Wedding scene. You can also visit the medieval tower (entrance at a donation). This tower was used in the times of the Knights to guard Fungus Rock from anyone trying to collect the fungus melitensis (Maltese Fungus) which was believed to have unique medicinal properties.

 

  • Ta’ Cenc Cliffs – Sannat (30 mins)

Probably the best spot on the island for sunsets. There’s a short 10 min walk from the road to the cliffs, where you can witness the majestic cliffs that surround the island. Just sit there to wind up your day in the quite surroundings hearing the sounds of the sea gulls.
