Beaches on our doorstep

Gozo’s tiny size is a blessing in disguise as everywhere is within a few minutes reach! This might contribute to one of the many reasons Gozo is a unique destination that can be enjoyed ….

At Abraham’s farmhouses we are proud that from our location perched on the hilltop village of Xagħra, we have at least 4 incredible beaches literally on our doorstep.   Naturally there are a great many other beaches along the coast of Gozo!

Starting from Marsalforn which is literally down the slope on the northern side of Xagħra, Marsalforn is one of the popular tourist zones of the island. Originally a fishing village, the beach offers a sandy shore and rocky areas from which to swim off and enjoy snorkelling. Marsalforn is also a great place to spend the evening amid the bars and restaurants along the promenade.

Next on the line is Ramla l-Ħamra bay. The unique red sandy bay is a favourite because of the wide expanse of red sand. The beach, which is also a Natura 2000 site, is also famous because legend has it that the cave on top of Ramla was the abode of the nymph Calypso.   Between Ramla l-Ħamra and Marsalforn, there is also one hidden beach – Għajn Barrani, a site that is completely unspoilt. This beach is completely off the beaten track but well worth the visit.

Yet another picturesque beach is San Blas, a beautiful cove which one can reach through Nadur.  The road to San Blas is a steep one and this makes San Blas a more peaceful spot.

All these beaches are just a couple of minutes away from our farmhouses. Enjoy a holiday you will never forget. We’re ready to welcome you to one of our farmhouses where you can enjoy the experience of authentic Gozitan living, a step away from the mesmerising turquoise waters of our beaches.
