About Gozo

Gozo Image

Separated from the main island of Malta by a ferry ride and a 5km stretch of sea, Gozo is Malta’s greener more tranquil island. Being a third in size, Gozo is more rural and rooted in tradition yet modern and open to change.

Why Gozo?

Gozo, typically known as ‘Ghawdex’ in Maltese is a tranquil change of scenery from the hustle and bustle that is known to be Malta. In fact, a number of locals and foreigners visit Gozo for a tempo and scene change. Smaller, greener and more rural, the change in atmosphere is seen and felt as soon as you step into Gozo. 

The island is only 14.5km long and is surrounded by tiny villages with typical activities like fishing, agriculture, and each with its own typical Baroque church. 

Gozo holds a special place in its heart for myth, heritage, and history. The greener island is home to the legendary megalithic temples of Ggantija, the walled Citadel, baroque churches, beautiful beaches, countryside trails for hiking and walking, and smaller cities for entertainment like Victoria or Rabat. 

Similar to Malta, Gozo’s weather and climate are very characteristic of the /Mediterranean, with hot and dry summers and short, cool winters with adequate rainfall. 

Although Gozo prevails in tradition and the quieter side of life, it still offers an exceptional shopping arcade, restaurants, bars and exciting nightlife, breathtaking diving sites, and other attractions.
