Ferry to Gozo

The main island of Malta is just 25 minutes away by ferry. Take a day trip to the mainland, then return to the calm of Gozo – the place the Maltese come to relax. Ideal for a holiday, Gozo is small enough to be easy, large enough to have plenty to do; developed enough to be comfortable, not so developed with a jealously preserved character.

Gozo is unlike anywhere else on earth – discover it yourself. You will be very welcome in Gozo!
