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!

It's a bit rough getting there (no bus going anywhere nearby) but it's worth every drop of sweat. The beach is beautiful and we didn't see a single jellyfish. However, I would recommend some boots because it's a bit rocky at first and with strong...More

We took a taxi to the salt pans and then walked the rest of the way to this spot. We were a little concerned about finding it since there were no signs, and there wasn't much out there period. But we had an adventurous attitude...More

This natural beauty is another hidden gem in Wied il-Ghasri, Gozo. A small crystal clear beach between the valley (Wied in Maltese) worth visiting especially in the early morning for a refreshing quiet swim. A bit tricky to get to it since there is no...More

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

Several people had recommended that we go here so we did. First of all, I would recommend that you bring some shoes that you can wear into the water. The stones were quite painful to try and walk on. It was very rough when we...More

After visiting the Wied Il-Mielah close to Gharb, we decided to make our next port of call the Wied Il-Ghasri, as it was in the vicinity. Once at the location, there are a good number of stairs to walk down to reach the tiny shingle...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 !
