Getting around Gozo is simple and easy. During your holiday in Malta you should not miss the opportunity to visit our sister island. You will not be disappointed for sure.

The transport system in Gozo is the same as Malta. But here we are outlining all the ways you can get around the island.

Approaching to Gozo by ferry.

By rented car

Gozo is small, but if you want to see a lot in one day, we highly suggest you rent a car and drive round the island. Touring the island in one day is not easy if you want to see all the sites in Gozo.

Driving in Gozo is the same as driving in Malta with the same laws. There are no speed cameras in Gozo.

Make sure you have a map or you have Google maps on your mobile phone to help you get around the island easily. We recommend you see beforehand where you want to go so that you do not waste time roaming around the island.

The island is full of signs and all roads of the island lead to the capital city Victoria/Rabat. If you have any difficulty go back to the centre and choose the road to the location you wish to visit.

The island's sightseeing tour

An option we recommend you do is take the Gozo sightseeing tour as it goes round the whole island and stops at Gozo's landmarks.

As mentioned above, a map or Google maps is very good to have handy to always keep updated where you are on the island.

You can also purchase a 2-day ticket where this gives you the possibility to see more of Gozo as you will have more time. You can purchase your ticket when you board the bus, but the ticket will be more expensive.
