Kercem Holidays

Holidays in Kercem - Perfect for scenic walks and bike rides

Kercem, located just 5 minutes from the capital city Victoria, is an ancient village offering a quiet secluded base, set amongst some of the most beautiful scenery on Gozo. Located in the south-east of the island, Kercem lies between the picturesque Lunzjata Valley and the stunning cliffs of Xlendi, and is a rural retreat, perfect for scenic walks and bike rides.

Kercem lies just south-west of the capital of Gozo, the relaxed little sister island of Malta. The village is only minutes drive from the shops, restaurants and sights of Victoria and a short drive from the charming seaside resort of Xlendi, which offers excellent swimming, snorkelling and diving in crystal clear waters, as well as peaceful waterside eateries. It is also close to Sannat and Gozo’s dramatic Ta’ Cenc cliffs. 

Kercem itself is a quiet Gozitan village with its own parish church and village shop. It is joined to the neighbouring village of Santa Lucija, which is smaller and more historic with a pretty little chapel and traditional rural feel. Beyond St Lucija is one of Gozo’s more fertile areas – very pleasant for country walks.
