  • Gozo is not as small as it seems on the map. Rent a scooter and make the most of your day traveling around this beautiful island.
  • Take a ferry to Comino and explore the tiny island by yourself.
  • Popeye Village is probably one of the most beautiful hidden gems in Europe.

  • There are not many exchange houses in Malta. Take with you a credit card without foreign fee and avoid running out of cash.
  • Most locations in Valletta, Silema or St Julians offer free WiFi. Still, you can get a prepaid SIM card with 1GB internet at the airport for only 20 EUR.
  • If you spot the Coffee Circus bicycle, stop and have some coffee. It is probably the best coffee I’ve had on the island.

  • The ferry between Malta and Gozo starts operating at 5:00 and departs every 45 minutes until midnight.

  • Finish your day drinking a glass of wine in some of the hip and cool bars at the coast of St Julian´s or Silema.
  • Start your day at the Tigne Seafront in Silema, one of the coolest locations in Malta, and take a swim in front of Valletta.
