Part of the Maltese archipelago, Gozo is the second-largest of the seven-island chain and basks in the Mediterranean off the coast of Sicily. More rural than its sister island, Malta, Gozo has a population of 31,000. Home to some of the oldest religious structures in the world, the fascinating Ggantija temples, the island offers dramatic orange-red sands and perfect snorkeling waters at striking Ramla Bay. Rickety buses ply Gozo's roads, making getting about the island an exciting component of your trip.

We also have two I.G.T. wines which certify that they have been produced from Gozo grown grapes.Therefore when you are visiting Gozo come and visit us at Ta’ Mena Estate for free wine and food tastings. We promise that you will not be disappointed!
Excellent time spent touring the farm, tasting the food, drinking the wine and buying some treats to take home. Josef is incredibly knowledgable and interesting. His passion for local produce and sustainable farming shines through everything he says and does. Tasting the wines and understanding a little about their production along with a buffet produced from the farm was a very enjoyable afternoon. One extra tip. If you want to talk to each other go to a bar. It was very irritating to have Josef repeatedly drowned out by a very small but rude and noisy group on our tour. He has a vast depth of knowledge that he shares generously, please have the manners and respect to listen to him.

Customers are kindly requested to book us at least a day before so that we can give them all our attention. If however, they are short on time, they can still contact us and we will do our best to accommodate them the best way we can. All wine tasting sessions are conducted in the afternoon. During winter and mid season tours are conducted at 4.15Pm and when the hot season starts vineyard tours are done at a later time. It is our policy that when the weather permits all wine tasting sessions are conducted at the vineyards at Gharb. Further details will be provided once booking is confirmed.
Wine tasting at Tal Massar was a fantastic experience: Anthony is passionate and knowledgeable, with a strong leaning towards the science of wine production. I gained great information on why it is important to slightly stress vines by avoiding over-irrigating (too many low quality grapes would be produced) and the science behind which variety will grow in which climate and soil. Anthony told us he set up the winery and vineyard about 12 years ago and it is astonishing to taste such fantastic, complex, wines from such a young venture. Having now tasted several (many... ) wines from around Gozo I can safely say that Tal Massar's products stand out a long way above the rest. The red Garb especially so. Anthony also produced a tawny Porto that he has made which, in my humble opinion, ranks amongst the top two that I have ever tried. Possibly, it tips the post into first place. The venue is very well organised with a tasting room, nibbles (the homemade sun-dried tomato and basil spread on local bread is heavenly) and facilities available. Recommended to everyone who visits Gozo.

The Spoonman’s Shop is a local artists gallery in the heart of Victoria. Our work consist in woodwork, paintings, ceramics and small handmade souvenirs. I am fascinated by the neolithic pottery so you will find some nice replicas here. I design wooden spoons with stories, wooden bowls, crosses and small decoration. Having my chisels in our shop I will be happy to present my craft.
This beautiful shop had amazing hand made jewellery and crafts. We bought a lovely hand painted magnet. It was unique and different from the usual souvenir shop choices. The owner was super friendly. You should visit this place if you have planned a trip to Gozo.

We enjoyed walking from Mgarr harbour along the cliff top walk to Hindoq with spectacular views out over Comino and Malta beyond. Hondoq itself is a lovely small bay with a restaurant which gets busy in the summer season but is very quiet at the time of year we were most recently there (January)

Visiting this Basilica you will see the beautiful paintings on the ceiling and the magnificent gilded things it has got. What about the beautiful statue of the Patron Saint of St. George. If you want to celebrate a nice feast with the well welcoming people of this parish church you have to come on the second week of July to enjoy this feast. A whole week of festivities , marches around the streets of Victoria the Capital City and enjoying the fireworks.

The ferry crossing from just north of Mellieha Bay in Malta to Gozo runs a sleek and efficient service everyday from early morning until late evening. There is no need to book in advance, just return up and board. The crossing itself is very fast (around 15 mins) and ferries depart every 30 mins; so you never have to wait long. The walk on passenger cost of Euro 4.65 return is very reasonable. Note: you only need to buy a ticket for the Gozo to Malta leg; when travelling from Malta to Gozo no ticket is necessary just board the ferry.

Extraordinary Ta Pinu Basilica, described as the most beautiful church in Malta, is a shrine and a pilgrimage destination. The beautiful interior and amazing mosaics in front of the church are worth seeing. The story of Carmela Grima and later history of the site are compelling. Take the walk up the hill across from the church to see the marble Stations of the Cross and the amazing view in all directions from the top of the hill.
