Gozo and tiny Comino provide a tranquil haven for a tempo and scene change.
The charm of Gozo is apparent the moment you arrive there. Greener, more rural and smaller than Malta, life on Gozo moves at a leisurely pace, the rhythms dictated by the seasons, fishing and agriculture.
In winter and spring, the Island is covered with flowering herbs and lush crops. In summer, it's awash with oleander, bougainvillea and geranium.
Gozo is steeped in myth. Thought to be the legendary Calypso's isle of Homer's Odyssey, it's a peaceful, mystical backwater. Baroque churches and old stone farmhouses dot the countryside.
Gozo’s rugged landscape and spectacular coastline await exploration. Choose from rocky inlets to red sand beaches or sail, snorkel, dive and fish. Gozo has some of the Mediterranean's best dive sites.
But there's more. Gozo comes complete with historical sites, forts and amazing panoramas. Plus one of the archipelago's best-preserved prehistoric temples, Ggantija. Not to mention a nightlife and cultural calendar all its own, and some great dining out.
