More Info

Departing from Mgarr ferry Terminal, the gateway to this paradise island, we head up the scenic Belvedere overlooking the harbour and Gozo channel accompanied by views of our sister islands in the Maltese Archipelago, Malta and Comino.

This road brings us to Qala, one of the most beautiful villages in Gozo, also the location of one of the most sought after tours in our list... A glide around this beautiful village takes us from the main Pjazza to Ta’ Tocc farming area, renowned for the unparalleled views of the north Mediterranean Sea.

Our next destination is Nadur, one of Gozo’s famous three hills and home to three of the most beautiful bays on the island, namely Dahlet Qorrot, San Blas and Ramla. Nadur is also the place to go to if you’re looking for an authentic traditional culinary experience in one of the iconic wood stove bakeries. Here we will stop for a mouth watering ‘ftira’ and some refreshing tea before heading to arguably the best hidden secret on the island – the cave overlooking Ramla bay. No words can describe the splendour of the view from here!

With views of the lush green valleys beneath us, we continue down to Ramla l-Hamra bay – which literally translates to ‘red golden sand’. This is the largest bay on the island, spread with red sandy dunes and shallow crystalline waters.

By the way, congratulations are in order, for you have made your way across the whole length of the island!

After a short walk on the sand, we hop back on our Segways and immediately head deep into the remote valley between the steep hills of Nadur and Xaghra, where we will stop to pick some wild prickly pears or pomegranates (in season). From the farmed orchards of this valley come most of the local fruits, such as plums, peaches, apples, oranges and lemons.

Slowly re-entering civilization, we pass through the oldest village in Gozo, Xewkija. The huge ‘rotunda’ dome of its church is the biggest on the island and dominates the whole village. The silhouette of this dome with the sun dawning behind it towards the west will create a fantastic photo opportunity.

Upon commencing our way back to the harbour, we will pass through the outskirts overlooking the valley of Mgarr ix-xini, recently made famous for being the set of the Hollywood blockbuster ‘By the sea’ starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. This area is also renowned for its rich historic sites including the ‘cart ruts’, dating back to the Roman Times and Fort Chambray, built by the Knights of St John.

Note:

  • For people residing in Gozo, this tour can also depart from Xewkija Pjazza.
  • We normally operate this tour once a week, therefore pre-booking is necessary. A minimum number of 2 guests is required.

Tour Main Points

  • Mgarr Ferry Terminal

    Starting Point - Mġarr is not only the main harbour, but also the largest fishing village in Gozo. In addition to the ferry terminal, a yacht marina is also located in the town. Mġarr is overlooked by Fort Chambray, constructed in 1749 by the Knights of St. John.

    Fact: The Gleneagles bar, which stands next to the original jetty in the harbour, was constructed as a cabin for ferry passengers in 1732 and fashions a sloping roof which is unique on the island.

  • Qala

    Qala is the easternmost point of Gozo - the village furthest from the capital Victoria and nearest to the other main islands in the Maltese archipelago, Comino and Malta. Its name is both Arabic and Maltese for sheltered haven or bay, and this is reflected in its coat of arms - a local boat sailing on rough seas.

  • Nadur

    Nadur in Maltese means 'look-out' and is derived from the Arabic word 'Nadara'. It is rich in various historic aspects, comprising of two watch towers built by the Knights of St. John during the Ottoman era – Ta' Sopu and Ta' Kenuna Towers, and its 3 popular beaches are a summer destination for locals and tourists alike, with San Blas bay being nominated as the most beautiful bay in the Maltese islands! Also the promenade overlooking the Gozo Channel near Ta' Kenuna Tower offers one of the prettiest views you'll ever see.

  • Ramla il-Hamra

    The biggest and busiest bay on the island and for good reason. The crystal waters and red sandy dunes sheltered in between the hills of Nadur and Xaghra offer a fantastic leisure zone for all the family.

  • Xewkija

    Ix-Xewkija lays half way between Mġarr Harbour and ir-Rabat and is best known for its awesome rotunda, the circular church at the centre of the village. Gozo's largest church, its dome is a distinctive landmark visible across much of the island. It is claimed to be the third largest unsupported dome in the world (28m in diameter and 75m tall), was built in the 20th century and is dedicated to St. John the Baptist.
