Tal-Mixta Cave

Tal Mixta

Tal-Mixta is an impressive cave rising about 100 metres above the sea. From the cave you can see the popular orange-red Ramla beach.

This is a great spot for view lovers and keen photographers, as this cave is one of the most photogenic spots in Gozo.

Directions to the cave

There are two ways to reach the cave.

The first, less convenient but all the more fun, is to walk from Ramla Bay itself. There is a narrow footpath that leads to the cave, and the walk from the eastern end of the beach to the top will take even untrained individuals a maximum of 25 minutes.

The path is also suitable for families with children (without a stroller), the last few metres are more dusty and extra care should be taken. If you hike in spring, you'll enjoy a path surrounded by flowering yellow plants and the ubiquitous cacti.

The other, slightly more convenient option is to drive above the cave; you can park right next to it.
