Getting to the island of Gozo requires one to drive up or catch a bus or taxi to Cirkewwa in Malta, that is found on the northern part of the island, just a 5 minutes drive ahead of Mellieha. Upon arriving there, one has to catch the ferry to the island. The pleasant crossing between Cirkewwa and Gozo takes approximately half an hour, depending on wind conditions. The shuttle service schedule and fares for the ferry can be found on www.gozochannel.com.

During the crossing, one can observe the beautiful island of Comino – the smallest island of the Maltese archipelago. Comino is a very popular tourist destination, particularly during the summer season, mostly renowned for its beautiful Blue Lagoon beach and fascinating caves. Comino can be easily reached via a water taxi or ferry service that operate on a regular schedule both from Malta and Gozo.
Driving around the island of Gozo is relatively easy, and it is very hard to get lost on the island. The driving direction is the same as Malta and UK. One needs to be over 18 to be able to drive on the island and also requires the possession of a valid driving licence.
There are a number of bus routes that can take you around the island of Gozo. There is practically a bus route for every place of interest that is found on the island. All routes currently being operated in Gozo can be found here and the bus schedule here. One can also buy tickets online here.
Another means of transport around Gozo is the taxi service, operating from taxi stands in Victoria, at the Bus Terminus and in Independence Square, and at Mgarr Terminal. Renting a car, a motor bike or a bicycle is however recommended, as this will allow you to make the most out of your Gozitan experience.
Finally, prepare yourself for a lot of walking. Trekking around the Gozitan countryside and cliffs is an experience that is surely not to be missed.
For those who are visiting the island through maritime means, make sure that all necessary documentation is at hand.
