Two great ways to discover any island and the island of Gozo in particular are on foot and by boat. Many travellers discover Gozo by boat only during summer.

In fact its beaches, inlets, flat topped hills and valleys make Gozo with its 43 km coastline and numerous country walks a perfect walking holidays destination. Yes, it’s got great walks for walkers of all ages.
Self Guided Walking Holidays in Gozo
If you’re an independent traveller – a couple or a family with children or else travelling to Gozo with friends, you’ll certainly enjoy some of the best walks in Gozo. You’ll find some amazing walking paths leading to gorgeous views to cherish together during your short Gozo walks.
For nature lovers, Gozo has a marvellous landscape, very rich in biodiversity and history. Did you know for instance that on Gozo and Malta there are more than 1100 different wild plants? Even more interesting is that some of these local wild plants are endemic. These are found only here and nowhere else!
Besides, we often notice that visitors plan to discover Gozo by bus or a car. It’s good but remember that nature walks or country walks in Gozo are easily accessible from most of the little villages. Unlike its sister island of Malta, every village on Gozo is surrounded by valleys, terraced fields and walking paths all around. This makes self guided country walking holidays in Gozo very pleasant and within walking distance from your stay.
Coastal walks are probably more interesting and some of the best walks in Gozo. Yes, it can be just our opinion as locals. But seeing our guests’ feedback after staying at our Gozo self catering accommodation with sea view and brand new boutique style Xlendi Beach Central Apartment, it certainly is.
Coastal walks are not only great to discover the local biodiversity which is even more fascinating near the coast. But you can also discover at your own pace the pretty Mediterranean sea view panoramas. Of course you won’t miss either the spectacular rock formations, the Gozo cliffs, sea level caves, secluded beaches and inlets.
