Holidays to Gozo, Malta

Overview

Often referred to as Malta’s little sister, most people think Gozo is only worth a day trip but that couldn’t be further from the truth. An island that’s able to hold its own in the holiday stakes, there’s plenty of opportunity to explore the natural beauty of this island. There’s also a laidback atmosphere to this green and lush island where historical sites and culture give an insight into Gozo’s intriguing past.

Beaches

For beaches free of sun loungers and commercial outlets, Gozo’s beaches are the ones to visit. Often set in rural surroundings, these beaches will provide a retreat where you can relax and forget about busy, everyday life, if just for a day. Ramla Bay is one of Gozo’s prettiest with red-hued sand and San Blas bay, which is surrounded by green countryside, is a great place to snorkel and spot local wildlife.

Things to Do

If you like the outdoors, explore the area around Dwerja Bay where The Azure Window is – one of the most popular sights on the island. This huge hole in Gozo’s limestone cliff stands at 50 metres tall and will probably only be here for a few more years as the oceans erodes the limestone away. Dive sites are also popular here with The Blue Hole being one of the most popular for all levels of divers.

Food and Drink

Gozo’s restaurants and bars reflect the island’s peaceful atmosphere and relaxing countrysidewith their low key events during the evening. Restaurants keep things simple with traditional Mediterranean fish, olives, cheese, fresh bread and olive oil among other local dishes and the bars are often those in hotels. The capital, Victoria, does have a selection of bars and clubs if you want to enjoy cocktails into the night.
