We hired quad bikes and headed up to Wield il-Ghasri and it was one of the highlights of our week in Malta/Gozo. You have to take the trip - we can't stress enough! It is beautiful, relaxing, and so exciting to swim in!

It's a bit rough getting there (no bus going anywhere nearby) but it's worth every drop of sweat. The beach is beautiful and we didn't see a single jellyfish. However, I would recommend some boots because it's a bit rocky at first and with strong...More

This is a 20 min walk from Qbajjar along the salt pans and beautiful rock formations. The gorge itself is simply stunning and, when we went, it was very quiet. After a quick swim and snorkel we walked around the corner to another swimming place...More
