Day trip to the island of Gozo (Still dreaming of Malta)

Dear Diary,

Even if winter is getting closer, I still have my trip to Malta on my mind. Spending a week there in July was really something to remember my whole life. If you get there, you should definitely have a day trip to the island of Gozo. For that you need to get to Cirkewwa Ferry Terminal and the boat will take you in 25 minutes to Mgarr Harbour of Gozo. I was there with my mother and uncle Mark who lives in Malta and he was so kind to be our personal guide.

The first place we explored was Xlendi Bay. This is a great place for swimming and enjoying the sun with a cup of iced coffee. I was really impressed by the colors of the water in Malta in general and Xlendi Beach didn’t disappoint as well.

Next stop on our day trip was the stunning Azure Window. I  was looking forward to visiting this sublime work of nature and it was much more magnificent than I imagined.

After all the swimming and exploring we were getting hungry so the next stop was Mo’s Diner at the suggestion of Mark, my uncle. This will remain in our memory as the place where my mother ate her first burger. I have to say that the food here was delicious.

At the end of our visit in Gozo we saw the Victoria Citadel. We walked around and admired this area that is part of the list of the UNESCO World Heritage sites since 1998. The sublime views from the top was the highlight of our day in Gozo.

Enjoy the photos and if you have any thought or questions, please let me know! 🙂
