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!

Azure Window

This huge limestone arch at the gorgeous Dwejra Bay is one of Gozo's foremost natural attractions. It's a favorite among scuba divers, but hurry – it's close to completely eroding!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Planning Your Gozo 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.
