We decided to make a little day trip to the island of Gozo on our trip to Malta. Gozo is a 25-minute ferry ride away from the main island of Malta. Ferries go every 30 minutes from Cirkewwa ferry terminal. The price for both ways is just below 5 euros and it is paid as you depart back to the main island from Gozo. If you happen to get seasick, it’s a goo idea to be prepared as the ride can get rocky!
Surely there’s a lot to see on Gozo, but as we decided not to do too many touristy things on our holiday – just so we could focus on each others company and all the wine available. As we arrived, most of the tourists got on a sightseeing bus, but we decided to explore with the local bus. Bus 301 took as half way, from where we switched to 311 that goes all the way to the breathtaking Azure Window (photos above). Over here I also started to understand all the selfie deaths in the media recently, as half of the tourists were literally hanging off the wet and windy cliffs with their selfie sticks.
After staring at all the tourists with their death wishes, it was time for lunch. We were starving, so we decided to stay at the only restaurant right next to the Azure Window. The meal ended up being the best I had all week; local octopus and local rose wine. We thought the restaurant would have crazy tourist prices as it was the only one around, but luckily that wasn’t the case.
