A view of Malta

The Location.

A jewel in the Mediterranean Sea.

The island of Gozo is the second largest in the Maltese archipelago, a group of islands in the heart of the Mediterranean.

More tranquil and serene than the main island of Malta, Gozo offers a laid back pace of life as well as scenic views and the beautiful crystal clear waters of the Med. The island is steeped in myth and is often referred to as "Calypso's Isle" as it is believed to have been the setting for Odysseus' encounter in Homer's The Odyssey.

In spite of its small size, Gozo has a surprising abundance of historical sites, coastal towers, churches, as well as one of the archipelago's best preserved prehistoric temples, "Ggantija".

For the more intrepid explorer there are many walking trails to enjoy and for the diving and snorkelling enthusiast, Gozo and the Maltese islands are peppered with very popular dive sites suitable for all levels of expertise.
