Touring Gozo on a tuk-tuk has to be one of the most convenient and fun ways to get around while you’re on the island. They may look small, but tuk-tuks are actually quite comfortable. Most can easily accommodate up to 6 passengers while seated very comfortably, and they drive at a leisurely pace so you can take everything in as you drive through the streets, at the same time your tour guide will be offering you interesting tid-bits about the different attractions as you go along.How fun it can be to explore Gozo in Italy on board of a Tuk Tuk.Take a look at this article to learn all about Mediterranean Island Gozo.

However, the two major conveniences offered by tuk-tuks has to be the fact that they relieve you from the need to wait for bus times or sit through traffic in order to reach each destination on your itinerary. Tuk-tuks meander through traffic easily thanks to their compact size, and as any Gozitan local will tell you, traffic in Gozo can be quite manic.

But the best part is that a tuk-tuk offers you the opportunity to fit a lot more into your itinerary than you normally would if you were to take conventional methods of transport, and you’ll enjoy seeing all the attractions in Gozo which are only accessible by tuk-tuk.

How Your Itinerary Will Look When Traveling By Tuk-Tuk

Some of the first attractions you’ll visit when taking a tuk-tuk tour is the Xewkija Square, which houses the impressive structure of the Rotunda Church. From there, you’ll drive to Malta Gozo towards the majestic Tas-Sanap cliffs, which offer a wondrous sight that is not to be missed, as well as the exquisitely rural and peaceful Xlendi Belvedere, where you’ll get to appreciate sweeping views of the Gozitan landscape at its best.

Even if it’s not part of your itinerary, ask your tour guide to stop by the Dwejra Inland Sea, as well as the ancient region of Xagħra where the Ġgantija Temples and Calypso’s Cave are situated. Both of these attractions are not to be missed, because they’re an indelible part of Gozitan history, as well as world history. In fact, the Ggantija Temples are so ancient that they actually predate the pyramids of Egypt, and Calypso’s Caves are so named because they feature on Homer’s Odyssey epic as the dwelling place of Calypso, the nymph queen who wanted to make Homer her eternal husband.

Of course, no trip to Gozo could ever be complete without a visit to the incredible Wied il-Mielaħ, a massive arch over the Gozitan sea. This sight will literally blow your mind with its sheer size, not to mention the intricately chiseled way in which the arch is cut. You must stop by Marsalforn as well, which is a tiny fishing village with nice colorful boats that are unlike anything you’ve ever seen, and the local market here is also very unique and offers a diverse array of produce and fresh fish to choose from each day. This is basically where the locals converge to source fresh produce each day.

We also highly recommend a stop by the Salt Pans, which have been around for centuries. Here, you can chat with salt harvesters about the history of Gozo and the Salt Pans specifically. While you’re at it, make sure to purchase a bag of authentic Gozitan salt- straight from the source!

Refueling

As part of your tuk-tuk tour, you’ll also stop by Victoria, the capital city of Gozo, which locals endearingly refer to as Rabat. Here, you’ll find a wide array of shops, including restaurants, bars and pubs, so that you can enjoy a wonderful repast as you take a break from your tour. We highly recommend The Boat House, Oleander, Café Jubilee and Arzella, because they’re all ideally located and offer a wide range of cuisine options from Mediterranean, seafood, Gozitan, European, Vegetarian and Vegan.

Take a Dip in the Blue Lagoon

Once you’ve refueled and are ready to get back on your tour, make a stop to the local ferry which will take you to Comino’s Blue Lagoon. Here you can take a dip in the warm translucent blue water or simply bask in the warm Mediterranean sun. The weather in Gozo is usually very pleasant all year round, expect for the winter months, which tend to be very cool, so if you’re planning on enjoying the water activities here, make sure to only travel during the spring or summer months.

After you’ve enjoyed some well-deserved tanning and swimming on the Blue Lagoon, your ferry will take you back on land, where your comfortable tuk-tuk ride will be waiting to pick you up. Thereafter, you can end your tour with some sundowners and dinner overlooking the magnificent views of the Gozitan landscape, after which it will be back to your hotel or villa for a well-deserved snooze.
