The island (14 by 7 km) is dotted with villages, their skyline dominated by domed, Roman Catholic churches and mediaeval watchtowers and fortifications. Gozo Island has several beautiful beaches, including Ramla Bay with its red sand, and a handful of secluded bays. The mysterious cart ruts at Ta’ Cenc, the Ggantija pre-historic temples and the curious rock formations in Dwejra are three of Gozo’s numerous attractions.
The natural beauty and history embedded in the island’s architecture make Gozo a compelling travel destination. The unhurried, warm hospitality of Gozo’s inhabitants makes you yearn to come back.
The Maltese archipelago is made up of mainland Malta, the sparsely populated island of Comino, a number of small, uninhabited islands, and the island of Gozo, the northernmost island lying approximately 90 kilometers south of Sicily.
The weather in Gozo is distinctly Mediterranean in feel. The Gozo summers are long, hot and dry, with temperatures exceeding 30 degree Celsius. The Gozo winters are short and relatively mild, with temperatures rarely dropping below 15 degree Celsius. It rarely rains on consecutive days, and hardly ever rains from May to August.
Considering the local climate, Spring and Autumn are ideal times to visit the island of Gozo. The temperature is pleasantly warm, ideal for picking up a tan on an afternoon country walk. Summer visits are for lovers of sun, sand and sea; winter travel is perfect for those seeking some relief from the frigid, wet weather back home.
The island of Comino is situated in the middle of the channel that separates Malta from the island of Gozo. The sparsely populated island is the favourite haunt of swimmers, divers, wind surfers and lovers of other water sports. The Blue Lagoon, with its crystal clear blue sea, provides one of the most spectacular sights of the Maltese archipelago.
