Bay of Mgarr
This small shore situated in a rocky valley is one of Gozo’s more quieter coves, but still a popular spot for diving and sunbathing. (Though, if you want to avoid laying on the rocky beach bring cash for a lounge chair.) The clear waters are perfect for underwater photographers looking to capture a variety of marine life such as bottom-feeding flying gurnards, scary sand-welling stargazers and even seahorses. This bay is also where Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie shot scenes for their 2016 film, “By the Sea”—something the nearby seafood shack reminds you courtesy of their blackboard menu advertising “Brangelina”, along with various plates of fish like grilled prawns soaked in orange zest served with thick fries.
