Gozo Island, a beautiful paradise

Ochre tones that contrast with the blue sky and the endless sea. Gozo is a paradisiac island and it only takes around 20 minutes to get here by ferry boat from Malta.

The landscape is an admirable green which contrasts with the old churches and the tiny streets. Smaller, more rural and less crowded than Malta, Gozo offers numerous possibilities.

Victoria

Gozo capital, also known by the locals as “Rabat”, is home to some really interesting places as Cittadella.

The Cittadella is a small fortified town located in the centre of Gozo, on a hill overlooking the capital town of Victoria. If you want to stroll in the late medieval era, take a look at this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Located in Dwejra Bay, the most famous “postcard” of Gozo is the Blue Window also known as Azure Window. The erosion of wind and sea created a natural arch in the middle of the rock that resembles a window overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

 

Rambla Bay & Calipso Cave

For those seeking beautiful seascapes Ramla Bay is one of the most famous beaches of the island mainly because of the red sand.  From there, you can see the mythological cave known as Calipso Cave. Many people believe it was in this cave that the nymph Calypso kept Odysseus prisoner for several years, as recounted in the poem “The Odyssey” by Greek author Homer. The cave is small but over an amazing view for the bay.

Blue Lagoon, Comino
