Experience Gozo like a local. Learn everything you need to know about Nadur, Gozo.
Getting to Nadur
Nadur is one of the largest towns in Gozo located in the eastern part of the island. Known as the ‘second city’, and famous for hosting the Gozo Carnival, it spreads along a high ridge to the east of Victoria and is a hub of activity throughout the year. It takes just 10 minutes from the Gozo Ferry Terminal by car and is well connected by bus. Take route 303 from the ferry or 302 from Victoria.
Staying In Nadur
Staying in Nadur makes sense if you love a traditional village square, with plenty of restaurant choices. There are plenty of BnBs in the area plus an Open Market on a Wednesday morning which brings the town to life. If you love to walk, there are some fabulous trails in this part of town. Nadur is also known for its top-quality citrus fruits which are produced in the fertile valleys of San Blas, not far from the square.
If you are in Nadur head to San Blas beach -but be wary of the steep hill to reach the bottom (and more importantly the way back!). If you want to give the hill a miss, head to Daħlet Qorrot. It’s a popular spot, ideal for sunbathing and swimming. A little way further, you will reach Qala, and the wonderful Hondoq Bay Beach. Discover the ultimate list of Gozo’s beaches here.
