Gozo

Online since: 09. April 2013

Gozo

Gozo is the sister island of Malta. The island lies only a few kilometers away from Malta. Despite being similar the island has a different flair from Malta, besides the island more vegetation, therefore much greener than Malta.The Gozo channel ferry connects both islands and operates regularly. The ferry needs only 20 minutes from Mgarr (Gozo) to Cirkewwa (Malta) or back.

Why visit Gozo?

Gozo has something to offer which Malta does not have. For example on one hand the Azure Window, a naturally formed arch on the coast. On the other hand the capital Victoria with the small romantic lanes and the large bastions, from which one has an excellent view of the whole of Gozo and parts of Malta and Comino. Then there is the beautiful beach, the Ramla Bay, and the historical temples of Ggantija. In addition the flair of the island and the inhabitants is a completely different one than in Malta.
