Gozo has no airport so visitors arrive in mainland Malta by sea or air in the modern plush port or airport. From there one would hire a car, or take a taxi, coach transfer or public transport to Ċirkewwa where the ferry departs for Gozo. Trips to and from Gozo are frequent and run throughout the day and night, although the night service is less frequent.

The trip from the port in Valletta Harbour or airport (Luqa) to the ferry point (Ċirkewwa) in Malta takes approximately 1 hour.  The ferry trip to Mgarr Gozo takes about 25 minutes and from Mgarr Harbour to the St. Patrick’s Hotel, in the seaside resort of Xlendi, about 20 minutes by car.

The Gozo Garage, the foremost car hire and handling agency in Gozo offers the most competitive and reliable services for all transfers, tours and car hire needs. Gozo Garage is the sister company of the St. Patrick’s Hotel.

If travelling by public transport, please refer to the timetable on their web site www.arriva.com.mt .  Take bus number 301 or 303 to Victoria (Rabat). From there take bus number 306 to Xlendi. The bus will stop you right in front of the hotel entrance.
