The Island of Gozo

The Island of Gozo

Set in the midst of crystal clear waters and with warm sunshine for most of the year, the island of Gozo is the ultimate hideaway. It’s no wonder that for more than 7,000 years, Gozo has attracted settlers who seek tranquillity. The megalithic temples of Ggantija, erected between 3,600 and 3,000 BC are considered to be the oldest freestanding structures in the world.

According to legend, thousands of years later, Gozo was home to Odysseus as mentioned in Homer's Odyssey and it was from this era that the name of Calypso's Isle was derived. The legendary cave of Calypso, overlooking Ramla Bay, is still visited by tourists, and Gozo has retained its magic and steals the hearts of many who visit the island today.

Located in the south of Europe, just 70 km away from Sicily, Gozo is famed for its breathtaking Cliffs, the numerous houses of character with its yellow limestone, unspoilt green hills and secluded bays surrounded by deep blue waters. All major international airlines, including have scheduled flights to Malta. From the airport, a 45-minute drive takes you to the Ferry terminal. The ferry passage between the two islands takes approximately 25 minutes and provides a pleasant opportunity to enjoy the views of the Maltese Archipelago, including Comino. Upon arrival in Gozo, a 15-minute drive to San Lawrenz takes you through picturesque villages and countryside.
