Wied il-Ghasri Beach

Situated midway along the north coast of Gozo, Malta’s sister island, Wied il-Ghasri is a rocky coastal gorge flooded by the Mediterranean Sea. At its inland end you’ll find a secluded shingle beach just a few metres wide but several times longer.

The beach can be accessed via a short winding footpath leading from a car park with space for around ten vehicles, with further unofficial parking spots on the side road which leads to it. To then reach the sea, you’re looking at an enjoyable swim down the steeply sloped sides of the narrow gorge, which has few handholds or ways of getting out of the water without returning to the beach. It shouldn’t be tackled during rough weather.

There are no facilities except for the car park at Wied il-Ghasri. Be sure to take protection from the sun and plenty of drinking water.
