Surrounded by azure Mediterranean waters, diminutive Gozo is just 5km/3mi from its livelier sister island Malta. Here, the pace of life is leisurely, the welcome is genuine and the people are friendly. The tranquillity, combined with the island's size makes Gozo perfect for gentle exploration on two wheels. Quaint villages, Baroque churches and traditional farmhouses blend naturally into the picturesque landscape and complement the unique coastline and amazing UNESCO world heritage sites.
This short, leisurely route combines a mixture of coastal tracks and quiet roads and take in panoramic views from the Ta'Cenc plateau as far as Malta and Comino. Visit Calypso's Cave overlooking the red sands of Ramla, reputed to be Gozo's best beach, and the UNESCO recognized temples of Ggantija. Travelling west towards San Lawrenz the 350 year old salt pans come into view where it's still possible to see locals scraping up the salt crystals. Finally, visit the ancient citadel and narrow alleyways of the capital, Victoria, as you return to Sannat along one of the island's most attractive trails.
Your first hotel, the Ta'Cenc Hotel, is a hideaway resort situated on the outskirts of a sleepy village. It includes a spa, several pools and sun terraces, and restaurants offering traditional Gozitan cuisine. At Xaghra you stay just outside the village, with views over the valley. The service here is friendly and the swimming pools are inviting after a day in the saddle. A touch of elegance awaits you at San Lawrenz. The spa at the Kempinski Hotel is reputed to be one of the best in Europe! Have a leisurely swim in one of the pools or just relax with a sundowner in one of the bars.
