What You Can Expect

Gozo Day Trip from Malta

Explore the beautiful island of Gozo on this day trip from Valletta!

Start your day trip with a hotel pickup from Malta, and travel to the port by minivan/bus. Then, board your ferry for your 20-minute crossing to the island of Gozo.

On arrival, step inside your air-conditioned minibus, and then set off to explore the stunning little island. Greener and arguably more picturesque than Malta, Gozo is made up of three rolling hills, with cute Mediterranean villages peppered throughout its landscape.

Admire the scenery on the way to Dwejra Bay and visit a beauty spot called the Azure Window – a rocky arch formed by centuries of gradual erosion. Stop to take pictures from the bay, and hear of the TV shows and movies that the arch has appeared in, like Game of Thrones and The Count of Monte Cristo. Another impressive landmark that your guide will point out is the Inland Sea – a stretch of water separated from the Mediterranean by rocks.

Enjoy a break for a light Mediterranean lunch with wine in a local restaurant, and then continue to Xlendi Bay for a stroll along the seafront, admiring the cobalt sea gently lapping its sandy beach. Head inside a grotto called Calypso Cave , which overlooks beautiful Ramla Bay, and hear of its links to Greek mythology; it’s thought to be the site mentioned in the Odyssey, where the nymph Calypso held Odysseus as a ‘prisoner of love.’

Your final stop of your tour is in the island’s capital – Victoria. In the heart of the town lies the citadel, an ancient fortress (also known as the citadella) that’s believed to have protected the town since the Bronze Age. Head inside the citadel’s walls and visit the theater to watch the Gozo 360 show – a short movie about the island’s history and culture.

Travel back to Gozo port and, after your ferry ride, finish your day trip with a drop-off at your hotel.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

This tour gets you on a 20-minute ferry ride to the nearby smaller but greener island of Gozo. It was full of people, specially because it was Saturday when we visited. But, it was worth it because we saw the beautiful Azure Window!

You might have already seen this Azure Window in Gozo, Malta through Youtube videos of illegal cliff jumpers. Due to erosion, there is the danger of the arch disappearing in a few years so people are not allowed to walk on it. In April 2012 a large piece of rock was dislocated and resulted in the window being made larger and more unstable, as well as a reduction in its nearly perfect oblong shape.

When you arrive, you have to purchase the ticket which I think was less than 5 Euros, and then you fall in line for your turn to ride the boat. People were practicicing scuba diving in the area, and a lot of swimmers enjoying the waters. Then, when your boat arrives, you ride it (with life vest of course) and you pass through this cave tunnel.. This trip also includes going to the Calypso Cave linked to the Greek mythological tale Odyssey and a short "Gozo 360 show" in Victoria which a good 20 minutes or so of relaxing in the ai-rconditioned theatre.
