More Info

Our training session takes place in the newly revamped Pjazza San Guzepp (Qala square), one of the main touristic hubs on the island. As soon as everyone is confident with their segway, we head up the hill to Triq il-Mithna, and are welcomed by the mouth watering smell of an old wood stove bakery, one of the last remaining on the island. Here we can stop to buy some freshly baked traditional "Qaghaq" (sweet sesame rings).

This route will take us out of the urban area and into a beautiful local farming zone called Ta' Tocc. This relatively unexplored part of the island, situated on its very eastern tip, enjoys some of the most spectacular views of both the North coast and the Gozo channel, and on a clear day it is not unusual to see the island of Sicily on the horizon!

Pjazza San Kurraw is our next pit stop before proceeding down the road leading to Hondoq ir-Rummien Bay. The crystalline water, identical to the Blue lagoon of nearby Comino, makes Hondoq Bay very popular amongst the locals especially in summer-time.

Heading back up, and before re-entering Qala Square, we take a detour to Triq il-Wardija, and the island of Comino is within touching distance from here. Further down, Triq ic-Cawl is arguably one of the most breath taking streets in Gozo.



Optional Route

Start/Finish: Mgarr Harbour - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Start your tour from Mgarr Harbour and add some postcard photos to your tour when passing through the stunning Belvedere overlooking the Harbour. Along the way up the hill to Qala, we will also take time to visit the beautiful Yacht Marina in Mgarr, Fort Chambray and the popular all year round Christmas Village called 'Bethlehem' in Ghajnsielem which attracts tens of thousands of visitors in the Christmas month.

Tour Main Points

  • Pjazza San Guzepp

    Starting Point - 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. The village parish church is dedicated to Saint Joseph, and was built by Dun Guzepp Diacono, between 1882 and 1889. Its style is baroque, as in many other churches on the island.

  • Triq il-Mithna

    In this narrow little street we find two very interesting pieces of Maltese history - the oldest wood stove bakery in Gozo, and the island's best preserved windmill. There are at least 69 surviving stone windmills in the Maltese islands. Almost all were grain mills. Out of the 54 windmills in Malta and 15 in Gozo, only 3 of these mills have still sails.

  • Ta' Tocc

    This area enjoys some of the most beautiful views of the North coast and on a clear day it is not unusual to see the island of Sicily on the horizon!

  • Pjazza San Kurraw

    The chapel in Pjazza San Kurraw, dedicated to the Immaculate Conception is one of the oldest chapels in Gozo.

  • Hondoq ir-Rummien Bay

    Hondoq ir-Rummien, a beautiful coastal area and bay in Qala Gozo, is one of the few remaining tracts of open countryside left in the Maltese Islands. The sea in this area boasts some of the cleanest, clearest water in all of Malta and Gozo, attracting locals and divers alike. An area of outstanding scenic beauty, it is also a vital habitat for dwindling communities of rare plants.

  • Triq il-Wardija

    Heading south, we soon reach Triq il-Wardija, and the island of Comino is within touching distance from here. Further down, Triq ic-Cawl is arguably one of the most breath taking streets in Gozo.
