What to see in Mġarr

Mġarr, nestled in the heart of Gozo, Malta’s sister island, is more than just a picturesque harbour town; it’s a gateway to an array of enchanting experiences. This charming port, with its azure waters and scenic backdrop, offers visitors a unique taste of Gozo’s tranquil beauty and rich cultural tapestry.

One of the most captivating experiences near Mġarr is a visit to the Ggantija Temples. Located a short drive from Mġarr, these megalithic temples are among the world's oldest free-standing structures, predating Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids. The Ggantija complex comprises two temples, surrounded by a boundary wall, and is a testament to the island's prehistoric inhabitants' architectural prowess. Walking amongst these ancient stones, one can't help but feel a connection to the distant past. The site also includes an interpretive centre, where visitors can learn about the temples' history and the people who built them. This UNESCO World Heritage site is not just an archaeological wonder; it’s a journey back to the dawn of civilisation.

Another must-visit destination near Mġarr is the stunning Ramla Bay. Known for its distinctive red sand and crystal-clear waters, Ramla Bay is arguably Gozo’s most beautiful beach. A short drive or a pleasant hike from Mġarr will lead you to this natural paradise, perfect for swimming, sunbathing and simply relaxing. The beach is flanked by Calypso’s Cave, believed to be the same cave mentioned in Homer’s Odyssey, adding a layer of mythological intrigue to your visit. The bay’s unspoiled natural beauty makes it a popular spot for both locals and tourists and its spacious expanse ensures it never feels too crowded. Whether you’re looking for a place to unwind or a spot for a family day out, Ramla Bay offers a serene escape.

For those interested in experiencing Gozo’s vibrant culture and history, a trip to the Citadel in Victoria, the island’s capital, is highly recommended. A short journey from Mġarr, the Citadel, also known as the Cittadella, sits atop a hill at the centre of the island, offering panoramic views of Gozo’s hills and valleys. This fortified city dates back to the Middle Ages and has been a bastion against invaders throughout Gozo’s history. Exploring the Citadel’s narrow streets, ancient buildings and the stunning Cathedral of the Assumption is like walking through a living museum. The Citadel also houses several museums and cultural sites, including the Gozo Museum of Archaeology and the Old Prison, making it a hub for understanding Gozo’s rich and diverse history.
