Soak up village life
While the magic of this hamlet may be in its serenity, there’s still a vibrant atmosphere to enjoy. The quaint square outside the honey-hued church of Saint Lucy is the epicentre of Santa Lucija. By day, browse stalls piled high with colourful fresh produce and by night, watch local musicians perform with much passion.
A stone’s throw away from Santa Lucija is Victoria, Gozo’s medieval capital. Perched atop a hillside, this historic city is a maze of atmospheric alleyways, surrounded by 15th century walls. Roam the ramparts and admire the panoramic views across the twinkling resort and out towards the sea.
Swap the country for the coast and discover Gozo’s gorgeous shoreline. Nearby Xlendi, an idyllic fishing village, is the perfect spot to while away a balmy afternoon. Snorkelling, swimming, sunbathing – you can do it all in this striking coastal location. Dive into the sparkling waters and admire the beauty of the surrounding bay.
