Gozo offers a year round experience of the Mediterranean lifestyle

Activities to Enjoy

Gozo famously provides an oasis of tranquillity, nature and history. Malta’s little sister island is greener, smaller and more rural with life’s rhythms dictated by nature.

Baroque churches and old stone farmhouses dot the countryside and rugged landscape. With some of the best dive sites in the Mediterranean, Gozo’s spectacular coastlines await exploration. All seasons offer a choice of activities, from biking through the green hills to hiking along the unspoiled landscapes blessed with spectacular cliffs. The island is home to tranquil beaches and secret caves all resting in Gozo’s unique coastline.
