Gozo is the second largest island in the Maltese Archipelago and does not have its own airport. It is connected to Malta with a 20 minute ferry ride. Therefore when coming through the airport or travelling by land, one has to take the ferry from Cirkewwa harbour and then continue by land in Gozo from Mgarr Harbour. We had a little more space this year and introduced some new ideas to get even more out of this spectacular setting. Camping areas will now be fully shaded to shelter campers from the sun in those late mornings. Besides Camping, we are also offering cabins for 2 persons sharing on sailing boats anchored in Ramla Bay besides various other accommodations on the island.
- Getting to the FestivalThe only way to get to Gozo is by Ferry or boat.

Sunscape wants to minimise the cost of travel for you guys as much as possible as well as thinking of the environment around us! We’re keen to help Sunscape to emit less carbon and we’d like to think you are too! There are people coming from far and wide so we’re sure that you can find a ride no matter where you are from! When car-sharing, make sure you know the identity of the person or persons you are sharing with. Take a note of their home telephone number and leave details of the lift-share, the driver and passenger’s number(s) and home address if possible with friends and/or family. Take your mobile phone with you. If you are at all uncomfortable with any arrangements, or the condition of the vehicle being used, then make other plans. All arrangements which you make are private arrangements between you and other sharers. The Festival does not arrange lift-sharing or have any liability to or for lift sharers. You may arrange this securely here

CARS AND CLIMATE CHANGE CO2 is the main cause of climate change and arguably the single biggest pollution threat that humankind faces today. Road transport accounts for around 25% of emissions. The least polluting cars emit around 100g of C02 per km, while the most polluting emit around 520g. Click here to find out how your car compares. The main ways to cut emissions are to drive less, reduce fuel use by choosing more fuel-efficient vehicles and by car-sharing wherever possible.
