The mighty and impenetrable Ta’ Ċenċ Cliffs have protected the southern coast of Gozo for centuries. Many inhabitants have come and gone over the years, but their beauty is here to stay.

That’s one heck of drop!

Ta’ Ċenċ Cliffs are a 20 hectare linear drop on the coast of Sannat with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea.

Home of the birds

The cliffs are recognised as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by BirdLife International because they support around 1000 Cory’s shearwaters and about 300 yelkouan shearwaters.

An awesome trail

Although unmarked, the trail is an easy one to attempt. Footpaths will lead you to the magnificent cliffside. Breathtaking, isn’t it?
