Heaps of history
For one small isle, Gozo packs in sights that spin a tale of its rich past. Let’s start with Victoria, the beautiful hilltop capital with a maze of honey-coloured medieval streets and centuries-old ramparts. Then there’s the megalithic temples at Ggantija that date back thousands of years and the beautiful towering churches that pepper Gozo’s countryside.
Gozo is gorgeous, fact. Just look at its coastline and you’ll see what we mean, with its plunging cliffs, sweeping beaches and crystal-clear sea. Red-tinged Rambla Bay is one of the best for relaxing on soft sand, while Dwerja Bay’s the place to go if you love underwater adventures – sea tunnels and caves await. Xlendi Bay’s aquamarine waters aren’t to be missed either.
Beachside shacks, seafront fish restaurants, family-run bakeries, shady terraces – you’ll find them all here, so take your taste buds on a truly Gozitan adventure while on the island. Seafood, local produce and Italian-influenced dishes dominate menus, so expect to sample fish soup, handmade ravioli, rabbit stew, cheese platters and more. Nom.
