Things to do in Gozo
Small but mighty… that’s Gozo! Although tiny, there are actually lots of incredible things to do in Gozo, right the way through from cultural activities to coastal water adventures. It’s great for all the family.
- Hop on the ferry at Cirkewwa in Malta and take the short journey past Comino to Mgarr Harbour on Gozo. The capital, officially called Victoria but known locally by the original name Rabat, is home to the impressive 16th century citadella which has been at the heart of activity on Gozo since prehistoric times.
- While Gozo is small — inhabited by just 40,000 Gozitans — it’s home to a remarkably large number of churches; 46 to be exact. Some date back thousands of years, such as the UNESCO listed Ggantija, a 5500 year old complex in Xaghra believed to be the second oldest man-made religious building in the world.
- Gozo, beyond its gorgeous history and ancient ruins, offers some of the best diving spots in the Mediterranean. In fact, one of the best things to do in Xlendi, and other places such as Marsalforn, is diving into the clear waters. The Blue Lagoon and P31 patrol boat off Comino are also great local dive sites.
It’s good to strike a balance during your holiday, exploring the island’s captivating heritage, and indulging in the relaxing luxury of the many Gozo beaches that can be found dotted along the coast.
- One of the best beaches in Gozo is Ramla Bay Beach with its jaw-dropping red sands (the name translates to ‘Red Sandy Beach’). It’s rarely crowded here as the local area of Xaghra is largely undeveloped. Make sure you visit the fantastic Calypso Cave, which is great for thrill seekers.
- Xlendi is home to a lovely pebble beach, with stunning cliffs and an assortment of caves, Here, you’ll find some of the best snorkelling spots on the island, and you could easily spend a few hours exploring the depths before sampling the local foods. You can reach the resort by car through Munxar or Fontana.
- Marsalforn is one of the most popular resorts on Gozo. Home to fantastic Gozo beach hotels like San Andrea Hotel, this north coast village welcomes visitors from all across the world during the summertime. The beautiful promenade here snakes its way around the crystal clear waters of the bay.
