If you head up to the north of the island, not only is the scenery drastically different, but you can find a lot of interesting things to see and do. Once you have done the sightseeing, the chances are that you will need a beverage to refresh yourself and the area of Bugibba, Qawra and St Paul’s Bay do not disappoint. With a truly enormous range of bars, bistros, and cafes to choose from there is a little something for everyone. Check out the Elvis tribute bar, glam it up in the casino, or just sit and watch the waves crash on the shore as you sip a cocktail at sunset- whatever you fancy, the choice is yours.


The capital of Gozo has some great bars to go out in, if you’re looking to go to Gozo you should check it out. There are also a couple of nightclubs in Gozo that put on special events and parties throughout the year and are well worth the ferry ride across the channel. Gozo is a beautiful place – smaller and quieter than its sister island of Malta, but nonetheless, it still has some super options when it comes to enjoying yourself!
