Ghasri Valley

Ghasri Valley is a breathtaking spot with fantastic waters and a small pebbly beach

Ghasri Valley, or Wied il-Ghasri is a breathtaking, narrow creek that seems right out of a postcard. Ghasri Valley’s narrow cove is approximately 300 metres long with a winding inlet and rugged, impressive high cliffs on both sides and about 100 steps down.

The crystal clear blue waters have their source at Dbiegi Hill and go to the open sea with plenty of marine life, especially on the cliff sides. The pebbly beach at Wied il-Ghasri Bay is quite small and only accommodates for a few sunbathers, however visiting this fantastic creek is a must. Ghasri Valley has calm waters and is truly a unique and beautiful hideaway, however be careful for occasional swells.

Wied il-Ghasri is popular with both snorkelers and divers who come to explore the underwater caves, especially the famous Cathedral Cave, located between Reqqa Point and Forna point. 

In winter and spring, when the weather is a bit cooler Wied il-Ghasri or Ghasri Valley is a beautiful place for country walks or cycling.

How to get to Ghasri Valley:

Ghasri Valley can be accessed either from the village square in Ghasri or from Marsalforn. If you are coming from Victoria, take the right in the village square roundabout and left at the first stop sign. After a short drive you will arrive to a small chapel where you have to turn right. Keep driving (slowly) on the narrow road until you see a smaller road going to the left where you can park and walk to the creek (3-4 min) From Marsalforn you need to drive or walk past the salt pans after Xwieni Bay and from there it is around 30 minute walk, as there are no buses going there. As you arrive to the small road on your right, you can walk to the creek.

    Aside from the beautiful scenery & the dramatic way the valley meets this little inlet, we didn't dare venture down to the valley below or to swim in the water. Why? The filth. We were shocked to see rubbish strewn everywhere on the ground. Worse was the rubbish that was floating on the water. It really made the valley & gorge unappealing, especially after experiencing so much beauty & clean waters/and elsewhere on the island.

    Ghasri Valley is the place of adventure and beautiful nature. There are some very good places in India famous for deep valley and ghats. This is the places best for adventure travel and trip.

    This was one of the most beautiful places we visited in Gozo! The valley was so beautiful and we did some good snorkelling. We went by car and it was a bit tricky to find, i would not go by foot during summer. Were were only a few people on the beach and it was not crowded at all.
