Reasons for trip

Most of the coastline of Gozo is surrounded by cliffs with wave cut platforms at the base of them. There are few beaches suitable for the sun-seekers.

Dahlet Qorrot Bay is a delightful small bay on the north east coast. It is popular with fishermen but gets few visitors as there are no tourist facilities, apart from a seat in the shade of the tamarisk trees.

It is a nice drive from Nadur down a very fertile valley with a lot of trees. There are small well tended fields growing a wide range of vegetables. Further down, the valley bottom is thick with bamboos. The valley sides to the south are bare limestone with little vegetation. The valley drops down to a small bay with tamarisk trees and small boathouses and storage sheds carved out of cliff face. There is a certain amount of parking on the small quay and floats in bay to tie up fishing boats.

The sea was very calm, clear and deep blue. A lot of small brown seaweed had been washed up on top of beach after the gale force winds the day before.

On the far side of the quay, steps lead up to a wave cut platform running round the headland and a steep narrow footpath heading up onto the hillside. On the other side of the bay are jagged rocks with a watch tower on the headland.

This is a delightful spot and our favourite beach on the island. We watched a fishing boat return and tie up with a few octopuses, eels and flattish fish.
