PHOTO GALLERY:
6 hours walk along the Eastern Coast of Gozo
March 2004


Page Description

Map of Eastern part of Gozo
This photogallery consists of many photos from a holiday to Gozo that I and my girlfriend Malin did between 18-21 March 2004. The photos are mostly taken for a special planned event that is a long walk of about 12-14km we made around the Eastern Coast of Gozo with our friends Simone camilleri and her boyfriend Piotr from Ludz. (click on icon to view the way we walked on a large detailed map). The walk started from Hondoq ir-rummien, to Ras il-Qala, ghar dorf, Dahlet Qorrot, San Blas, Mistra Rocks, ir-Ramla, and finally Marsalforn. This walk took us 6 hours, and was a mixture of exercise, adventure, wonderful views and fun.

This particular page contains 10 photos taken during the walk from the Mistra Rocks to the Rdum il-Kbir as indicated in the map here. For each photo below, there is a brief text explaining the photo. Names are taken from a map. Also one can click on the photo to view a large format high resolution photo (1500x1100 / about 300kb filesize) or click on the text-link below every photo to view a medium sized compressed photo (1000x750 / 120kb filesize). Enjoy this photogallery which involved so much work and time [MarZ]

The way was always harder and harder. Our walk was very slow now while we zigzagged along these huge rocks. Sometimes we had to hop between two separated rocks and so we had to be very careful to keep balance. Despite this, I made all my way through these rocks with my camera in my hand. I was risking a lot - but i was always used to this type of exercise.

The way was finally clearing a bit, and started to get a bit easier. Along our way we noted these 3 camps on a grassy patch.

Finally we surpassed the Mistra rocks and we had a relaxed walk along a small path and flat wasteland with plenty of wild grass. Now we increased or speed so as to reach San Blas bay which was very near and so have our next break.

We arrived at San Blas safely and had another well deserved break. This bay is really beautiful, but small. It is very similar to the most popular sandy beach of Gozo, Ramla l-Hamra, (the reddish Sandy beach) with the advantage that there is usually much more less people, but with the disadvantage that there are no pizza-bars, or shops to buy drinks. Although from Dahlet Qorrot to San Blas was a relatively short distance, it took us more than an hour and a half.

We left the sandy bay, and walked along the sea shore. This Photo is a look-back to the path we have walked to reach to San Blas, and the way we walked from there along the seaside.

We started to climb up, because it was impossible to keep walking by the seaside. I took this picture of this cute bay becasue the day before, I and Malin have walked till here and Malin managed to have a short swim in this paradise. I was was too coward to swim because I felt that the water was too cold. I only dipped one of my feet till the knee.

We walked up the slope accompanying the seaside. The slopes had a carpet of these wonderful red flowers, called groundsel, or more commonly known in Malta as "Silla". This is the most common red wild flower in Malta and is used a lot to feed cattle and rabbits. The slope was quite difficult to climb because the plants where very slippery, and there where other spiny plants too.

Yet another wonderful sandy beach, similar to San Blas and Ramla, but this one is very small and cannot be reached since there are no roads or passages to arrive here easily. Unfortunately there are no names of this site on my map.

Here we arrived near some large golden rocks which lines most of the coastline of this area. Their colour is very similar to the golden sand of the beaches shown in the other photos.

More and more rocks but not very difficult to pass by. We started to climb hills again and leave the coastline. Our walk was now again upon vegetative wasteland, and plenty of wild plants and grass.
