Gozo, Comino and getting around the main Island

Gozo, Comino and getting around the main Island

We are travelling to Malta in a little while, and wonder what the best way to get to Gozo/Comino without using one of the touring companies...we prefer to see things on our own. How easy is it to use public transport/taxis to get to and from the other islands or making it around the main island?

Thanks

Easy to use public buses. A weekly pass is only 6.50.

Another option is to use the open top buses which do circular routes around the main tourist attractions with headphone commentary.

There's a regular ferry service to Gozo from a place called Cirkewwa at the North of Malta plus various boat trips to Gozo and Comino, and around the harbour etc.

The answer to your question is contained in this TA article - tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g190313-s302/Island… . Basically you need to take a bus to the ferry at Cirkewwa, then when you get to the other side either take one of the open top hop-on hop-off tours or catch an ordinary bus to the Capital, Victoria.

There are two companies operating Ho-Ho tours on Gozo but the version offered by Malta/Gozo Sightseeing (the Green Bus) is slightly easier to use because all the buses take the same route every 45 minutes. In my opinion this is the best way to see Gozo because although the ordinary bus network on covers most of the Island, most bus routes only run once per hour and you always have to change buses in Victoria, which makes trying to visit several places in one day by public bus a bit of a challenge.

Note that you need to buy a separate day ticket to use the public buses in Gozo - the day/weekly tickets you buy on Malta aren't valid there.

To visit Comino you need to take a boat trip from Mellieha or Cirkewwa - to find out more please type "Comino" into the search box above your original post, as there is plenty of advice about this on TA.
