Where to go on Malta's Gozo island

Gozo is the rural sister island of urban Malta. With tranquil bays and postcard-perfect views from restaurant terraces, Gozo is an ideal relaxation destination, but it's also rich with history and great for sightseeing! Here are a few of its delights.

Ggantija Temples

If you only see one sight in Gozo, make it this one! The Ggantija Temples are thought to be world's oldest freestanding monuments – beating the Pyramids and Stonehenge!

Kerċem

This tiny village has been inhabited since as early as 5000 BC. It's now a haven for artists and provides some of Gozo's most picturesque landscapes and hiking trails.

Nadur

This historic village is where the Knights of Malta surveyed the passing of ships between islands. You can see right across the whole archipelago!

Ir-Ramla il-Hamra

The sea here is shallow and gentle, with the red sand surrounded by grassy cliffs. Ramla Bay is one of Gozo's best beaches, and can also be seen from the Calypso Cave in Xagħra.

Victoria

Crowning a hill at the island's center, Victoria – or Rabat – is Gozo's capital. Head to its Citadel to discover an old town of labyrinthine streets and historic buildings.

Xagħra Stone Circle

Dating back to 3000 BC, Gozo's stone circle is older than Stonehenge. A chambered tomb was also discovered at the site, and predates the circles by roughly a millenium!

Our insider tips

Where is it?

Gozo is Malta's northwesternmost major island, just south of Sicily in the Mediterranean Sea. Malta is actually made up of three main islands – Malta (the largest), Gozo, and Comino (the smallest) – and several smaller, uninhabited ones.

Can you fly there?

Not directly. You will need to book your flights to Malta International Airport in Luqa, on the main island (Malta itself). From there, allow about an hour to reach Cirkewwa Harbor, where you'll be able to board one of the regular ferries to the island of Gozo.

What people are saying about Gozo

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed this day trip. It was the highlight of our holiday - so lovely and relaxing, but also lots of fun. The Captain, Owen, was warm and friendly and personally greeted each person who came aboard. Owen also knew a lot of local history. Cushions were provided, as was snorkeling gear at no extra cost. Food and beverages were available to purchase and were surprisingly affordable. The other crew members were also friendly and always happy to provide help when needed. The boat itself was more beautiful (felt like a mini pirate shop) than some of the bigger boats running similar tours. Of course, Comino and the Blue Lagoon were just beautiful and we enjoyed snorkeling. We spent our time either sunbathing on the boat, or snorkeling/swimming in the sea. You can also jump off the boat into the sea if you're brave enough! All-in-all, a fantastic day for a really good price. I would highly recommend.

Awesome cruise- so worth the little money spend. You’ll get a good atmosphere on board and to see most of the islands. Nice day trip and thanks for keeping up the offer even during Corona. I enjoyed it a lot and would’ve been a shame to miss out on it caused by the circumstances

Definitely worth it. A shame there were no life vests or floaters available for non swimmers. If it a sunny day, don't waste your time going to gozo like I did. Just stay at Blue Lagoon. Gozo can't wait for another day trip.

The crew mates are very friendly. Great trip if u want to spend some time swimming and enjoy the beautiful views. It’s very windy and the sun is burning, so remember to bring a jacket and don’t forget to bring ur sunscreen.

Really nice trip seeing some beautiful beaches. The transfer to the Meeting was not pro actively organized. Check out what you want to do before booking the transfer to the city in Gozo. It was cool but nothing Special.
