What To Expect

After pick-up from your location in Malta around 9:ooam, we will start on our journey to the Cirkewwa Ferry Terminal; located in the North of the country, to take the 09:45am ferry. Once we catch the ferry we have around 30 minutes to reach the island of Gozo.

The Citadella - Located in the Capital of Gozo, this imposing fortification is built strategically on a hill giving a dynamic view of the whole island and its landscape. The ramparts are a vantage point for the onlookers and photo enthusiasts. Its roots date back to the late medieval times, but the hill has been settled since Neolithic times.

One can spend time wondering along the narrow street and the ramparts, or choose to visit the Fort Visitor centre located in the ditch (accessible for all).

One can also choose to go down the hill and try the local pastizzi - a local pastry delight filled with peas or cheese.

You are advised to have lunch at this time - ample time will be given to see the site and eat.

Xerri's Grotto
Xerri’s grotto is an underground site in Xaghra, Gozo. This cave was discovered in 1923, underneath a house, while the owners were digging for a well.

This small cave is known for its unusual yet colourful alabaster stalactites and stalagmites. There are a few attractive calcification formations that range from a height of 25cm to a metre.

The entrance is via a 10 metre spiral staircase, and the cave is artificially illuminated. The owners give you a quick tour, highlighting the geological structures that were created over the millennia. The cave is open from Monday to Saturday from 09:00 to 18:00 and the entrance fee is €2.50 for adults.

Ta' Pinu National Shrine
The Sanctuary of Ta’ Pinu is an architectural masterpiece built in an isolated site in the island of Gozo, in the valley between the villages of Gharb and Ghammar. It is a shrine to Our Lady of Ta’ Pinu, that welcomes all the visitors who wish to pray or simply admire the splendid sculptures and craftsmanship of designs on the Maltese stone inside the church.

Xlendi Malta Bay Gozo is located at the bottom of a very steep valley starting from the village of Kercem.

During the descent down to the Bay one can appreciate the greenery all around and the deeper one descends into the valley, one may also notice the abundance of cane growing in the valley, depending on the time of the year arriving at the car park soon after.

Due to its geological formation and the shallow sloping pebbly beach, the Bay used to be a sleepy fishing village where to date some fishermen still keep a few of the remaining boat houses.

The promenade, although small, is very pretty, especially in summer when it is lined with tables close to the seashore where one can enjoy a relaxing meal close to the water’s edge.

This would be the last stop for the day, at around 04:10pm the group will gather again to head to the Mgarr ferry to catch the 04:30pm ferry to Malta.
