Travelling to Gozo

Good Afternoon,

Myself and my girlfriend are visiting Malta on the 28th June and spending the first 3 days at the Grand Hotel in Gozo before spending a week in Sliema.

Can anyone recommend the best way to get to the ferryport from the airport? Is it easier to get the hotel to book it for us or just to get our own taxi? We land early enough in the day so if there is a bus that goes to ferryport I wouldn't mind getting that to see the island. (cost is not a problem and not in a rush).

Also any recommendations for nice cafes (for lunch) or Restaurants (for dinner) would be much appreciated and also nightlife (I believe Paceville is worth a look).

Sorry so many questions but very excited as we are hoping to get married here next year, so nice places to get hitched also a big bonus.

Thanks in advance.

Would suggest pre-booking a transfer to Gozo, as luggage on the bus could be a problem. If you are not pre-booking then make sure that you take a taxi from the booth in the airport, there you pre-pay the fare and that way you will not be ripped off. You are given a ticket to hand to the driver and all is needed is a tip.

You are talking about staying in Sliema and going to Paceville for night life, I cannot guide you on night life as I am too old. However nearby is St Julian’s with plenty of restaurants, I have found the following good:-

Barracuda, 194 Main Street, Saint Julian’s, 21331817


Underneath the Barracuda is Piccolo Padre, 195 Main Street, Saint Julian’s, 21344875


Paparazzi Restaurant 2137 4966 159, St. Georges Road, Paceville


Hard Rock Café 23722253-7

Level 2, Bay Street Hotel Complex, St. George’s Bay, St Julians
