We hired quad bikes and headed up to Wield il-Ghasri and it was one of the highlights of our week in Malta/Gozo. You have to take the trip - we can't stress enough! It is beautiful, relaxing, and so exciting to swim in!

Albeit becoming popular it`s still somehow off-the-beaten-track place. The really narrow canyon/gorge offers great place to swim and chill out especially if you walk around salt pans before. I have no problem with the rocks or stones as some other reviews are mentioning.

This is a 20 min walk from Qbajjar along the salt pans and beautiful rock formations. The gorge itself is simply stunning and, when we went, it was very quiet. After a quick swim and snorkel we walked around the corner to another swimming place...More

Although mentioned in our guidebook, it is a little off the beaten track and not easy to find, there were no signposts as we approached from the salt pans near Marsalforn and only guessed we were nearby when we saw a few cars parked up....More

It is awkward to get to, bicycles you can hire, quad bike hire, or even a return journey taxi, none are expensive. But make sure you go !
