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.
- 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.
