Gozo is the small island 6km off the coast of Malta. Access can be made using the Gozo Channel ferry which departs from Cirkewwa on mainland Malta to Mgarr on Gozo. Ferrys run approximately every 45 mins and the journey takes between 20 - 25 minutes depending on weather conditions. Alternatively you can take a trip on the seaplane. Farming and fishing is the main activity of the islanders and the majority of Gozo's villages are set on hilltops leaving the slopes and valleys for the cultivation of fruit and vegetables.
