Gozo lies to the north of Malta and is about half its size. It offers a gentler alternative to the larger island, as it has a slower pace of life and exudes a more traditional feel.
Holidays in Gozo are popular with divers and snorkellers, who will love to explore the warren of lagoons and caves that lie amid its turquoise waters. It has some wonderful coastal resorts, such as Xlendi and Marsalforn. Families, couples and peace-loving travellers will love the year-round warm temperatures and beautiful beaches.
The main hub of the island is Victoria, which can be easily accessed from all beach resorts. Here, visitors can amble around the charming streets or watch the world go by from a sleepy pavement café.
Gozo is also home to some amazing historical sites, such as the world’s oldest man-made structure at the Ggantija Temples.
