Gozo Jeep Safari Locations

mgarr

Mgarr harbour is the first location where you land with the ferry boat. It was always the main link between the islands due to be a natural harbour. It is popular for this reason and also as it is a fishing port for the several fishermen that lives on the island.

This place is very active all day with cars, coaches, locals and tourists, business, but still very serene surrounded with hills and blue sea. A location for beautiful photos mostly from high ground. The port today has berths for yachts, fishing boats and other vessels used for trade. Various restaurants and bars are found here apart from the Grand Hotel at the top of the valley.

Qala

The village of Qala is located at the farthest eastern location on the island. From here you can observe the incredible sea views of Comino and Malta. You will never get tired looking at this view whatever season or weather it is. All the village is surrounded by countryside.

The word Qala means port. It has sheltered many people through hundreds of years and is the oldest villages on the island. In a small villages social life revolves around the central village square.

nadur

The village can be reached directly from Mgarr harbour. It lies on the easternmost hill. From the highest point there is a superb view of Gozo and Malta. During the British rule a tower was built as a telegraph link between the islands in 1848. The baroque parish church dominates the landscape lying in the centre of the village.

Nadur is popular for the many activities that are organized yearly. Carnival is the most popular, the Delicata wine festival and the village feast which is held during summer. With this locality we find the popular beaches Ramla l-Hamra, Dahlet Qorrot and San Blas for their beauty and swimming opportunities.

Ramla bay

The Ramla l-Hamra bay is the most popular sandy beach on the island with its popular golden red like sand. It lies at the end a very fertile valley attracting visitors all year round especially in summer. It is very popular for swimming and sunbathing.

The fields spread across the valley are terraced with lined stone walls built by the local farmers over centuries. The valley is fortunately undeveloped although two small restaurants serve the beach visitors.

All the bay and surrounding area are protected by law. Well preserved sand dunes are habitat for a variety of plants and wildlife. The natural reserve is taken care by the Gaja Foundation.

victoria

Victoria is the capital city of Gozo which also incorporates the Citadel which is the ancient fortified city on top of the hill. By time the buildings spread outside the fortifications. All roads from the various villages lead and converge at the capital.

It stands in the center of the island but it is also the centre of everyday activity with the open market, businesses, shops. It is an appropriate occasion to observe the locals go by their everyday lives.

Originally it was called Rabat which name is still used today, The name Victoria was given by the British in honour of queen Victoria Golden Jubilee in 1887.

A visit to the Citadel is a must. Incredible views of the island over the fortification walls. Here you find the Cathedral of the Assumption which dominates the centre, also the archaeology and nature museums, Gran Castello historic house and the old prison.

The present fortification were rebuilt by the Knights of St. John to reflect the modern time warefare of the time. For many years the local population were obliged to sleep every evening within this city as a safeguard from unexpected attacks.

It is included in the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1998 with other sites in Malta.

Here you find a restaurant, snack bar and souvenir shops.

marsalforn

For many years it was a small fishing village beside a natural harbour on the north coast of Gozo. It lies between the villages of Xaghra and Zebbug.

During these last fifty years it grew and spread along the coast as a summer popular seaside tourist accommodation and holiday homes for Gozitans and Maltese. It all spreads up to the Qbajjar and Xwejni areas all along the coast.

Many restaurants line up the main street along the promenade. It is loved for its characteristics and tranquillity. In summer it is popular for swimming, diving, restaurants, bars and walks.

salt pans

Further in from Marsalforn, just after the Qbajjar Bay, you find Xwejni Bay, from here stretching for 3 kilometres, 350 year-old salt pans are found along the coast. All cut from the rock surface a chequerboard of mostly shaped rectangles dott all the area.

They are still taken care by locals to produce salt. During the summer months it is an experience seeing locals scraping, sweeping and collecting the crystals from the dried pans. The salt is stored in rock cut caves on the other side of the road to be sold on the local market.  A great location for photos.

Dwejra Bay 

The Dwejra area is a magical attraction attracting everyone who comes to this island. Dwejra is not only the Inland Sea and the Azure Window which now has colapsed. It extends much further with spectacular cliffs, caves and fresh water pools.

Here you can enjoy the Inland Sea quiet and ideal for swimming. A natural tunnel within the rocks takes you out to the open sea where you can take a boat trip to show you around.

Then the small Fungus Rock sprouting out high. The sea is deep and dark around. In rough weather it is all foamy with strong and heavy waves creates a spectacle.

The Blue Hole is very popular with divers who come from various countries just for this and great for swimmers around here.
