Any of the towns and villages of Gozo are a good choice. The island is small, the attractions are numerous, and the distances between them are little. However, vacationing in a town with a variety of attractions makes for a more laid-back and enjoyable experience. For this reason, Xaghra is the best town in Gozo for accommodations during a vacation.
There are numerous crevices and whole temples that have graced the village of Xaghra for millennia. The Ggantija Temples, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, predate the pyramids in antiquity! An interactive tourist centre that transports you through time has recently been added to the temple area. Another site you wouldn’t want to miss is the Ta Kola Windmill. Discover a different world as you learn about earlier customs and how villagers sustained themselves. You can enter both with a reasonably priced Heritage Malta pass.
You could be taken aback by the sheer number of organisations and clubs as you go around town. Volunteering and social life are both very vibrant here. You are more than welcome to stop by the Band Club for tea or a cold beverage, and the vibrant Football Club bar broadcasts all games. Be prepared for a serious blend of partying and religion if you’re going in September. The local festa (feast) is held on September 8th, but festivities begin a good fortnight before. A stunning display of coordinated fireworks takes place on the seventh.
BARS AND RESTAURANTS
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, there is activity in Xaghra Square. In addition to casual cafes and bars that also provide breakfast and snacks, it is home to award-winning restaurants. You’ll undoubtedly see several retirees whileing away their time sitting on chairs in the square; they’ll be more than happy to chat and share stories from “the good old days.”
Xaghra is fortunate to be bordered by three bays that provide a variety of attractions. Looking for some shallow water and sand? Ramla Bay, without a doubt! Prefer a remote location with crystal-clear waters? To truly unwind on an island, take a stroll to Ghajn Barrani Bay and go swimming there. You want to sunbathe, then have a drink or dinner by the water. The ideal destination is the seaside town of Marsalforn.
A hilltop town with panoramic views is called Xaghra. It is encircled by three bays—Marsalforn, Ghajn Barrani, and Ramla—as we’ve already mentioned, as well as by rich valleys tucked between hills. Most places can also see the Citadel. You really can’t go wrong with lodging in Xaghra.
