Things to do in Gozo

Top recommendations from locals

From sightseeing to hidden gems, find out what makes the city unique with the help of the locals who know it best.
Island
“Gozo is the second largest island of the Maltese archipelago. If using public transport you can get the bus to Cirkewwa and from there the ferry across to Gozo. There is also a hop-on hop-off option you could look into. In Gozo visit Rabat (the Basilica of Saint George) & Cittadella, the Ta' Pinu Sanctuary, Ggantija temples. Stop for a photo of Ramla l-Hamra at Calypso's Cave and in Dwejra where the famous Azure Window stood - you will still be able to see the Inland Sea and get a boat ride from here- and the Fungus Rock. If you have a rented car you should also pop down to see the salt-pans past Marsalforn.”
