Walk to Mgarr and board a ferry to Comino, the tiny island between Malta and Gozo. Once you have seen its famed and stunningly beautiful Blue Lagoon, stroll around the island which is car-free for some solitude and stunning views. When you reach Saint Marija Bay you can stop at the charming little beach and eat a picnic lunch. On arrival back at the harbour, board a ferry back to Gozo and walk back to your accommodation in Qala. A truly lovely day that you will relish.
