Country Walks

The Islands offer walkers some of the most stunning views anywhere in the Mediterranean. The first thing to do is to decide what sort of view you prefer – dramatic cliffs plunging into waves, the rocky, scrubland or hidden, lush valleys. En route, you’ll come across mysterious, prehistoric sites, cave chapels and secluded palaces of the Knights.

Gozo in its entirety is excellent walking country. We’ve mapped only three routes, but other areas such as Ta’ Dgiebi, near San Lawrenz, the Gordan Lighthouse near Ghasri, Honoq ir-Rummien near Qala and San Blas Valley near Nadur are all excellent walking areas. The Island is criss-crossed by tracks and lanes. The possibilities are endless. Don’t miss tiny Comino , ideal for a good day’s hiking and the ultimate in solitude and views.

Xaghra Area 6 km

From the village of Xaghra walk eastwards into lush green valley. A rustic path follows the water course down to Ramla l-Hamra (The Red Sand Beach). Return from the beach by road to the village of Nadur.

Sannat 6km

From the village of Sannat, walk to Ta’ Cenc Hotel and take the country road leading south east to the open scrubland and the southern cliffs. 2km west of Ta’ Cenc is the valley of Mgarr ix-Xini and the sea inlet of the same name. Return up hill along the valley by the road which leads to Xewkija.

Mgarr Harbour Area

From Mgarr Habour walk up hill a short distance to Fort Chambray. This large fortress, now being renovated and converted into a resort, was built in the 18th century by Bailli Jacques-Francois de Chambray. Rough paths down Chambray Hill lead to the little bay of Xatt l-Ahmar (The Red Shore) and to the southern shoreline of the Island.
