Wied il-Għasri

Wied il-Għasri. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

Today’s blog post is a bit of a bonus as I’m sharing three photos rather than one. Continuing with a series from last month’s day trip to Gozo, these photos are from our second walk that day, in which we explored the lovely valley of Wied il-Għasri. All three photos show the inlet at the downstream end of the valley, an inlet which is popular with tourists, bathers, snorkellers, and divers. And to be honest it isn’t hard to see why. The inlet is relatively long, narrow, and steep-sided, making the waters quiet. It is also a fair distance from habitation (well, as far as one can be in a tiny island like Gozo), so the place feels secluded and peaceful.

The waters themselves are relatively shallow, which I must say is rather unusual for such a steep-sided gorge. Access is fairly straightforward, with an unpaved parking area nearby that can hold several cars, and an easy flight of stairs leading to the bottom of the valley. If I’m there again in the warmer months, I will definitely pack my swimming gear with me.
