Reasons for trip

Ta' Gurdan lighthouse can be seen from all over the island, standing as a prominent feature on top of a hill.

There is a very narrow steep road from Ghasri up to Ta’ Gurdan Lighthouse. With stone walls and no passing places, we were fortunate we didn’t meet anything. The road widens at top and there is space to park. A rough track with a 'no entry for cars' sign leads up to the lighthouse. The area around is private and there are more 'no entry' signs.

The round lighthouse tower is surrounded by a rectangular building with accommodation and workshops. The area around is scruffy and unkept.

This was the first lighthouse to be built in Gozo in 1853. It is 21m tall and rises 180m above sea level. Its powerful beam can be seen all over the island and up to 50 kilometres away. During World War Two, radar was installed to give the population advance warning of raids. It is now unmanned. There are superb views across the island. While the south and east is built up, the north west corner of the island has no settlement and is just terraced fields.
