When you’re visiting Malta, you shouldn’t leave at the two smaller islands: Comino and Gozo. Comino is free of cars and has the wonderful blue lagoon as its main site. Gozo is much larger, offers amazing flat-top mountains, rocky beaches, and lots of history. If you want to get there you need to take ferry boats, all starting in Cirkewwa at the northern end of the main island.
As no cars are allowed on Comino you can board a passenger ferry at the ferry terminal where boats to both islands start. There is a parking area, a ticket booth and a small coffee bar. The ferry is not operating during bad weather and you can only find out by driving there and seeing the closed ticket booth.
The Gozo ferry can be boarded on foot or by car. Just line up with the other cars: there is only one route, and you don’t need to buy a ticket in advance – they’re sold solely on the Gozo side when you enter the harbor by car. On the ferry friendly staff will direct you to ensure the available space is used to full extent. This includes that you might need to drive onto an upper level. All very easy and hassle-free.
