An island break on the Maltese archipelago of Gozo will be hard to resist if you are seeking out a paradise that blends stunning scenery with culture and history. Sitting just off the Sicily coast, Gozo is one of 21 sublime islands in Malta. Holidays to Gozo will appeal to people of all ages and tastes, what with the island being home to scuba diving sites, blissful beaches, Roman ruins, and scenic hiking trails. Whether you arrive by sea or air, Gozo’s natural splendour will leave you open-mouthed.
Home to some 37,000 people, the island is the second biggest after Malta, and its character is just as big. You might recognise the shape of its hilly terrain from the Gozo Coat of Arms. Cliffs, caves, lagoons, and neolithic temples entice visitors to this Greek getaway, and that’s without mentioning the pleasant Mediterranean climate. Discover the ruggedly spectacular landscape for yourself by booking a holiday to Gozo.
Your guide to Gozo holidays
Home to The Citadel, St. George's Basilica, and Our Lady of Ta' Pinu Basilica, Gozo is an island with plenty of natural and manmade attractions. A geologic formation known as the Azure Window was once the focal point of Gozo Island. Although you can still visit it by boat, most of the limestone arch rests beneath the ocean after it collapsed in March of 2021.
Board the Gozo Ferry for a coastal tour of the island, where scuba and snorkelling are two types of water sports on offer. Renting a kayak is a good idea if you wish to get up-close to the caves and cliffs at Xlendi beach.
Sandy beaches, pebbly beaches, rocky beaches - you can take your pick when on a Gozo holiday. San Blas Bay is an isolated beach in the Gozo region that backs up onto lush green countryside. The clear water and rocky coastline at Marsalforn Bay and Qbajjar Bay make these areas perfect for snorkelling.
Look out onto Comino Hondoq ir-Rummien from picturesque Hondoq ir-Rummien beach, or catch a tan at Dwejra Bay. Scattered with pebbles is Dahlet Qorrot Bay, which is almost as scenic as the pebbly beach in the Ghasri Valley.
