GETTING TO GOZO
You can travel to Malta with over thirty different airlines from all over Europe and beyond. Gozo is accessed via its larger sister island Malta, via a short 40-minute transfer from Malta’s modern Luqa International Airport to the ferry terminal at Cirkewwa.
A 25-minute ferry journey then takes you across the channel between Malta and Gozo to Mgarr Harbour which is just five minutes from Lellux Guest House.
Malta has a charm of its own and and the journey is an enchanting introduction to the scenery and atmosphere in which you will be immersed in Gozo.
The bus service is good with a regular service from all villages on the island in and out of Victoria the capital (which is known locally as Rabat). The bus stops just a few steps away from our front door. From the Mgarr ferry port you need to catch the 303 to Qala.
There are several easy ways to transfer to Gozo from the airport depending on your budget. A direct transfer, where you and your luggage are picked up by car from the airport, enjoy the ferry journey to Gozo and then are delivered to the door at Lellux is probably the easiest way.
A cheaper option is the split transfer, where the difference is that you travel on the ferry as a foot passenger with your luggage, and then are picked up by a different vehicle in Gozo and transported to your accommodation.
Some guests like to travel from the airport by bus, to see the sights of Gozo on the way. This is a cheap way to travel, but can take a long time and the buses can be busy.
If you need help booking a transfer please let us know and we will be happy to help you make arrangements.
Hiring a car can be one of the best ways to explore the island. We recommend a car with air conditioning between June and September and that you book early for those times because demand is high.
It can be a lot cheaper to hire a car from a local company on Gozo, rather than from the airport. We will be happy to put you in touch with local car hire companies to make a booking.
For the fit and healthy visitor, bicycles can be hired. Cycling is a great way to explore the island, especially in the cooler months. You can book your bikes before you travel or when you arrive and they will be delivered to the door at Lellux!
