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

    1. 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

    2. 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

    3. 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

    4. 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

    5. 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.

  • 6. 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!

Frequently asked questions about Gozo

Planning Your Visit

  • 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.

This was fantastic- the upper deck loungers were lovely and the boat was so clean - we opted for the BBQ and the food was amazing! - the locations we visited were great and you can hire snorkel equipment for 10 euro deposit- lots of different drinks on board and great music - we did arrive early as suggested on other reviews and we were glad we did so we got a great spot on the top deck! Would highly recommend

We had a fantastic experience and would fully recommend to others. Segways are easy to ride and the tour was around quite roads and paths. We especially enjoyed seeing the countryside and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. He was brilliant. Many thanks again.

Very enjoyable day! The views are incredible. The veggie barbecue was nice think it was coleslaw, pasta, salad, couscous and some bread. cocktails were affordable on board and very tasty. Would definitely go again

It was one of the greatest experience of my life. Everything was together. The weather, the see, the places, the catamaran as a perfect place, good drinks.

Great guide - good collection from hotel. Good coach drivers - very informative
