    PUBLIC TRANSPORT

    Public local transport is the cheapest way of going around Gozo. Its limit though, is its restricted time-table which at times can be infrequent. Gozo buses are painted grey with red stripe on each side and can carry approximately 50 passengers. The cost per trip does not exceed € 0.47

    Gozo route buses serve villages around Gozo from the central Victoria Bus Terminus in Main Gate Street. They are identified by the number they carry on the front. In Summer, buses operate trips to Dwejra and Ramla Bay, while they increase the trip frequency to Marsalforn and Xlendi Bays

Trip frequency is reduced slightly in winter and the service may even be suspended due to bad weather.

    The ferry to Gozo

    4 more images

    Gozo is reachable from the island of Malta by ferry boat that that crosses on a regular basis between the port of Mgarr on Gozo and Cirkewwa on Malta. This service is used for goods, tourism and ltransfer for locals as many of themwork or study in Malta. Due to its frequent use residents of Gozo are able to use the ferry at a lower fare.
    The ferry carries passengers, cars and tracks and despite the crossing lasts no more than 20 minutes, the ferry facilities are great (apart from them being kept in clean condition)
    There are scheduled departures (less in winter) but in case of high traffic they run more frequently.

    If you're not too fond of travelling to Gozo by ferry, or would like a special kind of trip, Harbourair Malta has introduced a seaplane service between Malta (Valletta Waterfront) and Gozo (Mgarr Harbour). The trip costs Lm 15.00 (USD 48 / EUR 35) and lasts 20 minutes.

    Reservations may be made on the Harbourair website where you will also find a time-table. Harbourair also operate scenic tours between July and September around the two islands...sounds like fun to me!

    Gozo Channel Ferry

    by cherrybug Updated Jul 5, 2007

    The main ferry service from Cirkewwa (Malta) and Mgarr (Gozo) runs frequently throughout the day and during the summer season all through the night too.

    The ferry transports passengers and their cars from island to island and takes approximately half an hour.

    There is a cafe on board serving drinks and snacks and plenty of space to bathe in the sun on deck.

    A return fare is Lm 2.

    Car Hire Essential

    by cherrybug Written Jul 4, 2007

    Mr George Grech (see accomodation tip) very conveniently sorted out our car hire for us.

    The young guy from the hire company came to our accomodation on our first morning to drop off the car and picked it up from there on our last day. We went for the cheapest smallest car on offer but others are available.

    A car is highly advised as a way of exploring this lovely island. The roads are easy to drive on (they drive on the left) and most places are relatively well signposted. Be warned though - all the petrol stations are in one area (Victoria) so make sure you don't run out.

    Cost for this car was 10.50LM per day but that was with accident insurance.

    Parking is free on Gozo though time limited between 7am and 1pm.

    Victoria Bus Terminus

    Victoria Bus Terminus, located close to the central Pjazza Indipendenza, is the departure point to all villages and beaches of Gozo.

    Despite the fact that the bus service is quite good, it is not very frequent.

    From Victoria Bus Terminus there is also the possibility to take the taxi.

    Bus in Mgarr Harbour

    From Victoria Bus Terminus to Mgarr Harbour the route is directly covered by the bus no. 25 or by the bus no. 42/43 via Nadur and Qala, with the famous Maltese buses, this time painted in grey with a red central stripe.

    The Bus Terminus is right next to the ferry stop and the service is timed with the ferry's arrival and leaves Victoria Bus Terminus half an hour before the ferry's scheduled departure to Malta.

    Ferry to Gozo

    With a long time tradition, the regular ferry service from Malta to Gozo stops to Mgarr harbour.

    The link between Malta and Gozo is run by The Gozo Channel Company Ltd and the tickets that can be bought in Cirkkewa Harbour prior the departure are also valid for the return.

    The trip takes around 30 min and a beautiful view of Comino Island (the third inhabited island of the Maltese archipelago) can be admired.

    Ferry to Gozo

    The easiest way to go to Gozo is by ferry. But if you prefer, you also can go there by helicopter!
    There's a ferryboat connection between Cirkewwa on Malta and Mgarr Harbour on Gozo. In summer, they depart about every 45 minutes. It takes 30 minutes to go the other island, and there's a restaurant, restrooms and lots of nice places from which you can enjoy the view around!

    A return ticket costs 2 LM. Interestingly they didn't check the ticket again on the way back from Gozo. You can check out the current rates on their webpage.

    Cruising to Gozo!

    Gozo Ferry

    A short 20-minute ferry ride from Malta transports you to Gozo. The trip is very pleasant, unless it's done on a stormy day in winter, when it can be a little bumpy, however, being one who has always suffered from sea-sickness, I can assure you that you will survive!

    The best way to tour Gozo is by car. You can hire one in Malta and travel with it on the ferry, or hire one as soon as you arrive in Gozo. Travelling on the ferry with your car is quick and easy and only costs Lm 6.75 for a standard car including one driver. Extra passengers, or passengers without car, cost Lm 2.00 per adult ticket. You purchase your return tickets at the ticket booth just before you board the ferry at Malta. The car tickets are valid for seven months whilst the standard fare (adult ticket) is valid for return for one year.

    The ferry service is available all year round from Mgarr Harbour in Gozo and Cirkewwa, Malta. A timetable and more info. can be found at the link below.

    Best option to explore Gozo

    by tophat30 Written Mar 22, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best option to explore Gozo is by hiring a 4x4. There's much to explore off the beaten path such as temples and caves. As most of the land has steep hills I don't recommend bicycles .Buses are unreliable to say the least. Most of bus services end at 1900.

    Spontaneous Shelter !!

    If you're driving in Gozo and you'll notice an oncoming vehicle bigger than a car ( i.e. van,bus, truck) approaching you from opposite direction, I advice you to give way even if it's your right of way. They seem to thing that the bigger the vehicle: the stronger they are. They never give way. In driving's terms the Gozitans are the local Rednecks.
