The Maltese archipelago’s island of Gozo mixes tranquillity and beauty with culture, history, and identity.

The earliest free-standing megalithic temples are the Ggantija Temples in Xagra, which are UNESCO World Heritage sites. Gozo, a 67-square-kilometer island in the Mediterranean, with a 7,000-year history. Gozo is supposed to captivate anyone who steps foot there with its pristine beauty and genuine charm that other areas have lost.

Gozo is the place to be if you need to find calm in the midst of a turbulent world. The island, which appears to have been lost in time and space and has maintained a certain allure that draws people captive to its beauty, is best described as idyllic. From its little villages with their enormous baroque churches to the imposing Citadel with its cathedral honouring Our Lady’s Ascension, this charm can be found everywhere.


Gozo appears to be an other world. One may have believed that its joy and peaceful atmosphere were lost treasures to the passage of time. It’s the same query that Ulysses would have asked when, according to tradition, he halted from his travels in Gozo after becoming enamoured with the nymph Calypso. With its unspoiled beauty and undiscovered harshness calling out to be explored, one will undoubtedly stay enthralled today and wonder whether Ulysses’ captivity was on purpose. There is no doubt that the tired traveller will find comfort on this tiny island.

A picturesque ferry ride that lasts 25 minutes connects the island to the main land of Malta and departs once every hour. Sustainability has been at the forefront of the island’s efforts in tourism, a sector that substantially contributes to the economic life in Gozo and is connected to 96 other European airports via the Malta International Airport.

Gozo is concentrating its efforts on creating small and sustainable niches, like strolling, cultural tourism, and adventure sports like diving, kayaking, and climbing. Three yearly international music festivals, three full-fledged operas with world-famous performers, and two opera houses in Victoria are just a few of the highlights of Gozo’s robust cultural calendar.

Indeed Gozo can be proud of its two opera theatres which the islanders built with much fervour, given their enshrined love for culture and the arts.


It is amazing how much culture, history, and natural beauty can be found on such a little island. Those that manage to visit Gozo are in amazement of how a small area of land can provide such a rich experience; as a result, many keep coming back, and the fortunate end up making it their permanent home.


One of the family-run estates dotted throughout the island is open for visits. You can sample local wines and agricultural items including tomato paste, jams, fruit, and olive oil that are made in the area. Since they have frequently been cultivating the land for generations, the family in charge of these estates are quite passionate about what they do and will give you an honest explanation of the produce. In addition, if you visit Gozo during the fruit-harvesting season, you may still run into farmers along several of the valleys of the island.

All around the island, there are a number of well-established walking paths. In addition to offering breathtaking views, the coastline itself is a rich source of history and tales of triumph and failure. Some of the salt pans date back to Roman times, and there is an old legend about a wealthy watchmaker who attempted to continue enhancing his wealth by producing salt in 1745 but failed.

However, Gozo is much more than this. Gozo’s coastline, countryside and surrounding seas can be considered a playground for the more adventurous. Diving, kayaking and climbing are actively enjoyed in Gozo with diving the most popular, as one can find some internationally-renowned sites. There are also a number of scuttled wrecks along the island’s coast. Climbing is also a common pursuit, as the island’s sheer cliffs lend themselves perfectly for this kind of sport all year round

Gozo never ceases to astound. Gozo’s cultural calendar is packed with events, so enthusiasts of all things cultural may be confident that their wishes will be granted there. The three operas and the annual international cultural festivals are among the attractions.



Gozo’s tourism industry has expanded significantly over the years as more people become aware of this rare treasure of an island shrouded in legend and beauty. In Gozo, tranquilly and beauty come together in a natural and inspiring way. Its picturesque landscape, stunning beaches, and sheer cliff edges make it the perfect getaway for thrill seekers.

A stroll through the countryside or coastline, which is peppered with lovely and ancient watchtowers that formerly served as a warning when plundering corsairs first appeared, can be the perfect way to cap off a lovely day. The kindness of the residents and the unique local fare, such freshly baked ftira or local wine, at one of the old pubs strewn around the villages, fascinate visitors to the island.

Local artisanal goods can be found in intriguing workshops all around the island as well as in the Ta’ Dbiegi crafts hamlet. The magical beauty of Gozo has inspired an upsurge of artists, who have created an intriguing new line of goods that are uniquely Gozitan while still standing apart from traditional crafts.

Autumn is the ideal time to visit Gozo because of the pleasant temperatures, warm, clear waters, and deserted beaches. When the water temperature averages a relaxing 23C and the coastal areas are delightful havens of unspoiled nature, beaches remain busy far into November.


Because it is safe and offers a wide variety of activities, the island is a fantastic vacation spot for families as well. The youngsters will have a great time kayaking to one of Gozo’s bays while admiring the breathtaking coastline and the exquisite water. There are a variety of outdoor activities available, including boat rides, segway tours, horseback riding adventures, boarding, bicycling, and diving. The island of Gozo has something for everyone to enjoy and will keep the whole family occupied in nature, which is what really matters.

The Knights of St. John originally ruled over the Maltese Islands, as is well known. Considering that our flag features the Maltese Cross, their heraldic emblem. But that just makes up a small portion of the intriguing history of Gozo, which dates back 7,000 years.

The strategic Mediterranean position of Gozo has played a significant role in shaping its eventful history. There have been dreadful sieges and subsequent invasions. But Gozo’s history is also one of perseverance and respect for the past.

Fortunately, much of our past can still be seen in the architecture, scenery, traditional culture, native food, and language of Gozo. We are surrounded by history, and learning about Gozo’s past can be enjoyable for the whole family.


Around 5000 BC, settlers from Sicily are thought to have become the first inhabitants of Gozo. The famed Gantija temples, which were built between 3600 and 2500 BC, provide Gozo with some incredible evidence of this rich Neolithic community.

gozo history

This megalithic temple complex is almost 5,000 years old, older than Egypt’s famous pyramids, and is included as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The complex’s walkway leads you through the temples, which are located just outside of Xaghra.

Additional traces of our old Bronze Age society can be found farther south, close to the breathtaking cliffs at Ta’ Cenc. Three tombs at Ta’ Cenc have been dated to between 2,500 and 1,500 BC, and some traces that appear to have been cart ruts have been carved into the limestone plateau.


Around 1500 BC, the flat-topped hill that would ultimately become The Citadel, or Cittadella in Victoria, was the site of Gozo’s first defensive structures (Rabat).

gozo history

The Phoenicians, who colonised Gozo around 700 BC, made the Citadella’s defences stronger. 500 years later, in 218 BC, the Romans land on Gozo and start erecting stronger structures and fortifications. The Citadella merges with a community called Gaulos. The Byzantine Empire of Greece eventually displaced the Romans in 535 CE. They supported the growth of Christianity in Gozo during their approximately 400 years of power.

The Gozo Museum of Archaeology in Victoria has a large collection of artefacts you may view if you’re interested in learning more about this time in Gozo’s history. And why not challenge the children to locate the Roman inscription on a piece of limestone that was eventually used to construct the Cittadella’s main gate?


After a siege in 870 CE, the Aghlabid Arabs drive out the Byzantines and add Malta to their kingdom, which already includes sections of northern Africa, Sicily, and southern Italy. Islam is expanding.

The Maltese language, as well as our place names and surnames, are influenced by the Arab culture. Ghawdex, the name they gave to Gozo, is still in use today. There are distinct Arabic flavours in our local food as well.

Look for the exquisitely carved Maymnah Stone when you’re in the Gozo Museum of Archaeology. During the Ottoman era, they engraved an Islamic inscription on a Roman tablet and used it as a tombstone.


The Maltese Islands were incorporated into the Kingdom of Sicily in 1091 CE, two centuries later, and Christianity was reinstated in Gozo.

Between 1200 and 1500 CE, a number of European kings, including the Swabians from Germany, the Angevins from France, and the Aragonese from Spain, leased Malta and Gozo as feudal estates. In turn, each nation contributed aspects of their culture and cuisine to Gozo.


After being driven from Rhodes by the Ottomans, The Knights of Malta (Hospitaller Knights of the Military Order of St. John) establish a base in Malta in 1530CE. This is an important development.

gozo history

The knights constructed several homes, forts, and even jails while they were in Malta and Gozo. There is still a collection of 16th century houses from this era in the Cittadella. One of them, the Gran Costello Historic House, is a museum where you can learn about Gozo’s long-standing farming culture.

Consider adding the Old Prison Museum to your agenda; keep an eye out for some extremely old graffiti that has been etched into the walls. Additionally, you will undoubtedly encounter the Fort Chambray, which looks out over Marra Harbour, as well as the Isopu watch tower, which is situated between San Blas Bay and Dahlet Qorrot and was also constructed by the Knights.

We advise visiting the Citadel Visitor’s Center first to learn more about the site’s history and what to expect before you explore the Citadel.


The worst siege in Gozo’s eventful history took place in 1551CE when the Ottoman Turks invaded the island with 145 ships. Gozo residents were under siege in the Citadella and were subjected to a barrage of shipfire. The Cittadella suffered severe damage, and other houses and churches were also destroyed. Numerous Gozitans were taken prisoner and sold into slavery, but it’s estimated that just 300 managed to escape.

If you visit Victoria and stroll around the Cittadella, keep an eye out for the memorial marking this horrific incident, which has an eternal flame outside the Citadel’s gate.

The Xaghra Historical Reenactment Organization brings history to life every September by staging a number of parades and activities to commemorate the great siege of Malta (the main island) that took place in 1565.


The Maltese Islands were conquered and controlled by the First Republic of France under Napoleon, ending the Knights’ 268-year reign over Gozo. There was an uprising within a few months, which developed into a two-year blockade of the French troops. The British, Neopolitans (Sicily), and Portuguese were helpful to the Maltese.

The Maltese Islands become a British protectorate after the French surrender in 1800 CE, and on July 23, 1813, Malta becomes a Crown Colony. Italian is replaced as one of the official languages in 1934 by Maltese and English.

The recognisable old red telephone boxes you’ll find all across Gozo are one of the most obvious reminders that the British previously controlled the island.

If you happen to be in Victoria in the middle of August while visiting Gozo, you can take in the Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition, which is held annually since 1855. It is a celebration of local agricultural products, and you will witness farmers enthusiastically competing to win medals for the best honey, fruit, vegetables, and even cattle. It is said to have been inspired by the Victorian Great Exhibition in London in 1851.


Britain created a naval facility in Gozo because of its strategic location in the Mediterranean between Sicily and North Africa. Malta served as the headquarters of the Mediterranean Fleet during World War 2, which made it a target for German and Italian forces.

Despite 154 days and nights of continuous bombing in 1942, which is nearly unimaginable, the Maltese Islands refused to capitulate. The Maltese people as a whole were subsequently given the George Cross by King George V on April 15, 1942. Additionally, our flag proudly represents this.

gozo history

Between 1941 and 1942, around 170 open-air air raid shelters were built on Gozo. Twenty of them, including two sizable shleters at the base of the St. Martin’s and St. John’s demi-bastions at the Cittadella, were in Victoria. You can go see these to get a sense of what life must have been like back then.

Malta officially became independent from British sovereignty on September 21, 1964. Every year, the Maltese Islands commemorate this important day with a public holiday and several cultural activities. And Malta became a republic ten years later. Then, Malta formally acceded to the EU in 2004.



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.



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. 



Invoking an optimal way of living with an excellent quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality.

A contemporary, ultra-modern, ground-floor apartment that is frequently connected with pleasure and leisure is situated on top of the red sand beach of Ramla, just outside the bustling village of Xaghra. You’ll step into a roomy, opulent atmosphere that surrounds you right away. A big private patio with a five-seater hot tub, outdoor furniture, sun loungers, a gas BBQ, and a large parasol is accessible from the floor to ceiling glass doors that flood the home with natural light. This private patio shares a level with a small gym, a sizable public deck area with numerous sun loungers, and a sizeable pool.


Four bedrooms, a kitchen with a microwave, a flat-screen TV, a seating space, and four shower-equipped bathrooms are all included in this apartment’s amenities.

Offers both a car rental service and bicycle rentals, and local riding may be enjoyed.


An elegant and contemporary Gozitan holiday rental with private pool and hot tub.

situated next to the iconic vista of “Calypso Cave” and the most well-known red sand Ramla beach, on the outskirts of the bustling Xaghra hamlet. SiKu is a holiday rental that is ideal for unwinding and relaxing by the pool or to enjoy the seclusion of a spacious back patio that features a warm 3-seater hot tub, sunbathing areas, covered lounging areas, and an outdoor dining space complemented with a charcoal grill and an olive-tree garden.


The apartment comes with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, bed linen, towels, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, a dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, and a patio with pool views. For added convenience, the property can provide towels and bed linen for an extra charge.



A romantic getaway is all about focusing on your significant other while escaping the hustle and bustle. Gozo is a terrific spot to spend quality time together while participating in hobbies and interests that bring you closer, whether you’re attempting to renew a relationship or celebrating a significant milestone in your journey as two.


You can choose from a wide range of lodging alternatives in Gozo to meet all of your needs as a traveller. Choose between an intimate stay in a rented farmhouse or villa or a magnificent 5-star hotel. A wide variety of guesthouses, self-catering apartments, and B&Bs are also available.



It can be difficult to imagine that Gozo, a small island, has such a rich cultural heritage. You will cherish the pleasure of exploring the town of Victoria, the Citadel, and the different villages and hamlets on the island. It is particularly noteworthy that the island has a veritable musical programme, including international music festivals and an opera season, in addition to the customary summer Mediterranean feasts. Nature and the sea are nearby, beyond the culture. In Gozo, you may genuinely have it all!



In Gozo, seeing the sunset is rather simple. View stunning sunsets from various viewing points and allow them to uplift your spirits. Beautiful displays can be seen along the island’s western shore in places like Xlendi, Dwejra, and Xwejni. But the sunsets over higher ground in Gozo, such as the cliffs on the island’s southern side and hilltops like Xagra, Nadur, and the Citadel, are just as ominous.



Vincent Van Gogh, a famous painter, famously penned: “For my part, I know nothing with any confidence. However, the stars themselves inspire me to dream. Gozo is known for its immaculate beaches, clear waters, exciting festivals, and picturesque historical settings. But as night falls, another breathtaking sight is in store: a starry sky that can be seen from many different spots all over the island. Because Gozo is a small island with a rocky, undeveloped, and unspoiled shoreline, it offers a unique opportunity for nature enthusiasts, stargazers, and astronomers to see the most incredible dark skies above an open sea.


Stars, planets, space stations, the yearly Perseid meteor shower, eclipses, and of course The Milky Way over Fungus Rock may all be seen in places like Dwejra.

Enjoy the fact that you are at a unique location where you can still see The Milky Way in all its splendour as you observe the night sky in Dwejra.


Make a reservation at one of the cosy eateries with sea views to enjoy the flavours of Gozitan cuisine. Although local ingredients and the characteristic Mediterranean seasons are the foundation of Gozitan cuisine, the chefs there will pleasantly surprise you with a diverse menu.

gozo holiday

Gozo is a great place to go on a date any time of year. After all, it is the island where, according to Homer, the siren Calypso enchanted the brave Ulysses for a long seven years!



Small though it is, the Mediterranean island of Malta is likely to be more cultural and cosmopolitan than you could ever imagine. In a single day, you could swim at sandy or rocky beaches, admire scenic countryside views, delve into Malta’s turbulent past, and dine at Michelin-starred restaurants. All are within quick and easy reach!


Malta has practically constant sunshine, but the seasons still change. Summers that are pleasant and ideal for the beach, springs that are dazzlingly colourful and bright, moderate winters, and cosy autumns. Malta is certainly endowed with beautiful weather, which makes it a desirable trip year-round, peak season or not.


Whether travelling alone, with family, or with friends, there is a complete programme of social events. You’ll never get bored in Malta thanks to events like the Strawberry Festival in the spring and the Notte Bianca cultural all-nighter in the fall, as well as the monthly village feasts in the summer and Easter Week (with its big processions and open-air exhibitions of traditional art).


Malta is the perfect vacation spot for tourists from various backgrounds.

Do you yearn for a slower tempo? You’ll adore Malta’s proximity to the sea, its opulent spas, its authentic food, and its exquisite natural beauty places.

These characteristics can be seen throughout the island in cities and villages such as the fishing hub of Marsaxlokk, Mgarr with its breathtaking countryside and sea views up north, Siggiewi and Zejtun down south, and, of course, Lija, Attard, and Balzan, also known as the Three Villages. And there are a tonne more contenders besides these few.


Alternately, if you’re a party animal who enjoys the energy of the city, Malta has enough to offer you as well. Imagine modern, high-rise buildings, 5-star hotel amenities, shopping centres with high-end and designer goods, and hip bars and clubs where you can party till the sun comes up. The well-known entertainment districts of St. Julian’s, Paceville, Sliema, and Bugibba, as well as the areas around them, are just waiting to be discovered. Award-winning international food is also available, whether for fine dining or casual eating, all of which attest to Malta’s strong cosmopolitan side.


Malta makes up for its small size with culture and history. In its small island setting, Malta manages to fit three UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Malta is home to the legendary Megalithic Temples, the al Saflieni Hypogeum, and the capital city Valletta, which was founded by the Order of the Knights of St. John and is even older than the Pyramids. St. John’s Co-Cathedral, the Grandmaster’s Palace, the Manoel Theatre, and the National Library are among its collection of magnificent Baroque structures.

And let’s not forget the Three Cities, which are located across from the Grand Harbour from Valletta’s Barrakka Gardens. Alternately, go even further back in time with a vacation to mediaeval Mdina or the Cittadella in Gozo if you enjoy fortified cities and desire the most Instagrammable twisting streets possible.


Although many visitors on Malta holidays will perhaps take the ferry to enjoy a day trip to the island of Gozo, others will choose it over Malta itself as their preferred holiday base. As a holiday destination in itself, Gozo remains unspoilt and relatively undiscovered and is a perfect location to relax and unwind!

Holidays to Gozo are well suited to couples looking to get away for a few days in the sun as well as family holidays where you can relax and unwind. If the thought of getting away from it all on a secluded beach under the Mediterranean sun appeals to you then choose Gozo!

Much of Gozo’s nightlife lies within its hotels and tranquil restaurants which feature plenty of Gozo’s favourites like fresh fish, olives, figs, honey and cheese all of which are produced locally. For a night out it would be best to take the ferry to Malta and head out in Valletta or Paceville.

Gozo holidays offer a spectacular contrast to a break in Malta. in Gozo you can take in some truly majestic countryside dotted with stone farmhouses and sweeping pastures combine with interesting rock formations, caverns and caves and some of the bluest water you’ll ever see.

It’s once again that time of year. Your thoughts begin to move to escape the worst of the impending winter as the days get shorter, the sun has sunk into hiding, and the air grows chilly.

We have a suggestion for you if you don’t enjoy skiing or long flights to the tropics. Why not try out our lovely island of Gozo?

On Gozo, the winters are consistently warm, averaging between 12 and 15 degrees Celsius from November to the end of February. Additionally, it is typically much dryer, with plenty of sunshine and blue skies, making it ideal for outdoor activities like cycling and hiking.

The streets of our nation’s capital Victoria will serve as the stage for a five-day festival including vibrant floats, incredible costumes, dancing, marching bands, and much more.

And for something completely different, we advise going to the village of Nadur to take part in the nightly Spontaneous Carnival. People can be seen here donning bizarre costumes and ugly masks because this festival is all about disguise.

If you’re still hoping to feel the warm sun on your skin, it could be difficult to locate a bright vacation spot throughout the winter. Even locations for common summer activities could be difficult to come by. One island, Gozo, has sunshine virtually all year long.


If you’re asking what you should do during winter, there’s one suggestion – go visit Gozo. The island is Malta’s second-largest. Numerous locations for activities including hiking, diving, and culture are found there.

gozo holiday

What’s amazing about Gozo is that whether it snows or pours outside, Gozo is probably showering guests with sunny days, keeping it a haven for fall and winter travellers.

If you choose to travel to Gozo in the winter and find this hard to believe, here are some things you can try.



The seas surrounding Gozo are among the top diving locations in the world because of their moderate temperatures and good visibility. The vibrant marine life and underwater scenery in the waters of Gozo will wow you.


Swim through corals that are vivid shades of yellow, orange, and pink. Perhaps you’ll even run into a friendly seahorse!

Around Gozo, there are more than 50 recognised dive sites. Divers have a variety of alternatives, such as shipwrecks, reefs, and caverns. In Dwejra, the Blue Hole dive is the most well-liked.

Huge vertical tube-shaped rock structures may be seen there, and a cave teeming with marine life can be found at the bottom of this shaft.


Hiking adventures are among the nicest things to do in the winter. Tourists can go on “nature” treks in many beautiful places in Gozo.

The Ta’en Cliffs, the Dwejra area, and the saltpans region near Xwejni are some of Gozo’s most popular hiking destinations.



In Gozo, Christmas is a very popular festival. It’s a fantastic opportunity for visitors to learn about Maltese culture. One of the main attractions is the Gajnsielem Nativity Scene, which takes place over the Christmas holidays and concludes on Epiphany and transforms Ta’ Passi into the Bethlehem Nativity Scene.

For everyone taking part in the Christmas activities, ages-old traditions and customs are also revived. You can also taste traditional sweets, participate in local customs, and practise traditional crafts during this period.


During the winter, Carnival is observed. Even while virtually every community hosts carnival celebrations, Victoria and the village of Nadur are where the majority of the action takes place.

The carnival in Victoria is typically a spectacular and colourful occasion with dance groups, parades, and floats where people party for three days straight while dancing to music and donning costumes. The carnival in Nadur, on the other hand, is a spontaneous sort of celebration, and it borders on being grotesque, humorous, and occasionally macabre.


Check out the annual carnival in Nadur for a one-of-a-kind winter experience because of its distinctive character. The traditional kukkanja, a form of competition in which competitors attempt to climb up a greasy pole to collect as many tokens as possible, is still held in villages like Xaghra.


It’s also advised to stroll around the Gozitan towns, visit the gorgeous churches, keep an eye out for the charming chapels, and take in the tranquilly of the old-fashioned neighbourhoods.


Visit one of the cafés or bars in one of the quaint village squares for a quick snack or light lunch. You’ll discover along the way that Gozo has a history that cannot be disregarded.

Ggantija Temples, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is a thousand years older than Stonehenge, is one instance. Make sure to sample some Gozitan food at one of the many eateries to round out your village tour.


Gozo offers more than just adventure. In actuality, Gozo is home to many vacation homes. In Gozo, there are a tonne of possibilities, so whether you want a seaside view or a rural countryside setting, you’re sure to discover the ideal lodging.



Even in the winter, Gozo is the ideal destination. Whatever your preferences, Gozo has something to offer you. So keep Gozo in mind the next time you’re looking for somewhere fresh to travel to in the winter.

Take note of the various activities you can engage in, such as scuba diving, swimming, wandering through historic towns, celebrating Christmas, and having a good time at exciting carnivals.

Additionally, if you ever feel the need for some downtime, you may always choose upscale accommodations to make your trip to Gozo truly unforgettable.
