Join us on this new and unforgettable cruise that shows you what the Gozitan coastline is all about. You leave from Sliema Ferries at 1030 hrs and cruise towards Malta’s sister island, Gozo. During this cruise you will be able to see the Cliffs of Ta’Cenc. The area consists of garrigue and steep and rugged cliffs, which rise from sea level to a height of 120 m. The cliffs are identified as an Important Bird Area by BirdLife International because they support 800–1000 breeding pairs of Cory’s shearwaters and 150–300 pairs of yelkouan shearwaters. You will also cruise to Dwejra Bay which is the home of the Fungus Rock or, as it is locally known, “Il-Ġebla tal-Ġeneral”.
Until the 8th March of 2017, you could also see The Azure Window, a 28-metre-tall (92 ft) limestone natural arch. The arch, together with other natural features in the area, has appeared in a number of international films and media productions. Following decades of natural erosion that caused parts of the arch to fall into the sea, the slab and pillar collapsed completely in stormy weather on 8 March 2017. Another attraction during this cruise is Ir-Ramla l-Hamra. Ramla l-Hamra Bay, meaning Red Beach in Maltese, is Gozo’s largest sandy beach with unique bright orange-red coloured sand and beautiful blue clear waters. Ramla Bay is also one of the most beautiful beaches in Malta, set in the bottom of a valley with unspoilt wild and fertile nature. During this cruise you will stop in a bay around Gozo (weather permitting) and also at Blue Lagoon with it’s crystal clear waters where you can relax on the boat or lay on the beach.
You will return back to Sliema Ferries around 1800 hrs.
