Especially in these last years, the Maltese archipelago seems to have become a really popular destination for young people. During the summer months, in particular, Malta gets crowded with people, a real melting pot of all the ages, full of people with a great desire to have fun, be it on the small districts of the Maltese nightlife or on the beaches that run along the east coast. A small microcosm, suitable for different pleasure. But for those who still want something different, far from the chaotic nightlife, and with a decidedly rural atmosphere, Gozo island is the answer. A “raw pearl” on the north of Malta.
As in a time machine, yet in a matter of only twenty minutes, the ferry boat departing from Cirkewwa we’ll take us to Mgarr, leaving behind, even if just for a few hours, the pressing Maltese modernity. We’ll be catapulted into a small, rural world, suddenly feeling a nice, relaxed atmosphere.
Stepping down from the ferry boat, we can find the urban bus stop, as well as private companies that allow us to enjoy a panoramic tour of the island at affordable prices.
For those who want to feel completely free, renting a quad – also at affordable prices – will allow them to explore truly unspoiled places, such as the beautiful and wild coves. It’s even possible to witness the hatching of the turtles’ eggs, or else, to visit small caves accessible only with a fishing boat.
