Malta - Day Trip to Comino and Gozo

Victoria, Malta
2 Kudos
Malta made up of three islands why not visit the other two when you have the unlimited bus card right? The bus journey took nearly 1.5 hours to get to the Cirkewwa Ferry Terminal. Once we arrived instead of going into the ferry terminal to purchase the ticket to Gozo, we followed the small signs to the little ticket counter for ferry to Comino.

Instead of round trip to Comino, they have the option to do Malta – Comino – Gozo for €15 per person, not too bad. We boarded this small boat and oh boy the short trip to Comino was very rocky at first and seeing the large ferry vessel from a distance wasn’t even rocking! At one point, I was so scared that the boat might flip; water was coming into the boat!!! We made it to Comino safely phew!

Comino was very busy, I never see so many tourists in Malta! Comino is known for its clear “blue lagoon”, it’s postcard perfect except for the crowds.

There were vendors renting beach chairs (ridiculously priced) and selling snacks and drinks. We went there for photos so we stayed there for a short period of time only. The island is very small and uninhabited.

We waited at the little pier for over half an hour for the boat to Gozo….arrived Gozo!

We took the bus to Victoria, the capital of Gozo. The bus dropped us off at Victoria bus terminal and it was a few minutes walk into the center where we had lunch at It-Tokk.

Then, we walked over to Cittadella. We walked all the way to the back and check out its view…..ancient people seemed to like picking the capital location on top of a hill.The Cittadella is quite small…we finished it in 15 minutes! There is a Mdina Glass shop right in the entrance so we went in and checked it out. They did not have that pink cup  Afterward, we walked back to the station thinking to catch a bus to the Azure Window but the next bus is another 45 minutes away! We looked at the schedule, the frequency is not so good so getting there and back will waste a lot of time. We decided to walk back to the square and check out the shops there instead! We didn’t find anything interesting for souvenir though.

We headed back to the bus station and to the ferry terminal. The bus was completely filled so as soon as the bus stopped, we ran out and join the long queue to purchase the ticket….time is running out! Then another line to board the ferry, OMG, it was so crowded and people were just jamming in! It was crazy but we made it! Goodbye Gozo!

Excellent local food with a nice wine glass chandelier. I ordered the marinated ribs while my husband tried Malta’s local dish – rabbit stew. Both were very good, I had a little bit of rabbit, I know it’s cruel 
