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

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.

What people are saying about Gozo
We had a really nice day! The captain was a very pleasant person and informed us constantly was left and right. Very nice and helpful team! The prices were lower as we expected and the beaches were also beautiful, not reachable for those in rolling chair and for the blue lagoon I wish I had the stone beach shies because on the stones the slippers were not helping and barefoot was not so nice, but the water, amazing! Amazing experience!✨
Really good tour, smaller authentic boat with all the facilities you would expect- including snorkel equipment, drinks and food, toilet and outdoor shower. The crew are very nice and the whole experience felt safe. Would do it again!
Very nice experience! Our driver, Charlie, was the best! He really has a passion and proud of informing others about Gozo during the trip. We are very grateful and wish him the best!
