Saltpans Walk

This circular walk starts and ends in Victoria, the main town of Gozo. From here the walk proceeds to the breathtaking ‘Sara valley’. After visiting Gozo’s oldest basilica, the walk continues to ‘Wied il-Għasri’, a valley flanked by high cliffs, and then to the sea.

Near here is ‘Reqqa point’, with its traditional salt pans where is salt is produced by evaporation of sea water. The walk proceeds to ‘Xwejni Bay’ and then ‘Qbajjar Bay’, where rest facilities, restaurants and public conveniences are available.

Leaving ‘Qbajjar’ behind, the walk takes you along a dusty road through the beautiful Gozitan countryside and valleys. Passing by the watercourses you can observe the diverse flora and fauna associated with these unique habitats. The walk then continues back to Victoria.

The route map in the centre pages of this booklet, together with several stone plinths located along this route, will guide you along the walk, providing an excellent opportunity to truly appreciate the island of Gozo.
