Gozo is the rural sister island of urban Malta. With tranquil bays and postcard-perfect views from restaurant terraces, Gozo is an ideal relaxation destination, but it's also rich with history and great for sightseeing! Here are a few of its delights.
This tiny village has been inhabited since as early as 5000 BC. It's now a haven for artists and provides some of Gozo's most picturesque landscapes and hiking trails.
This historic village is where the Knights of Malta surveyed the passing of ships between islands. You can see right across the whole archipelago!
The sea here is shallow and gentle, with the red sand surrounded by grassy cliffs. Ramla Bay is one of Gozo's best beaches, and can also be seen from the Calypso Cave in Xagħra.
Crowning a hill at the island's center, Victoria – or Rabat – is Gozo's capital. Head to its Citadel to discover an old town of labyrinthine streets and historic buildings.
Dating back to 3000 BC, Gozo's stone circle is older than Stonehenge. A chambered tomb was also discovered at the site, and predates the circles by roughly a millenium!
Gozo is Malta's northwesternmost major island, just south of Sicily in the Mediterranean Sea. Malta is actually made up of three main islands – Malta (the largest), Gozo, and Comino (the smallest) – and several smaller, uninhabited ones.
Not directly. You will need to book your flights to Malta International Airport in Luqa, on the main island (Malta itself). From there, allow about an hour to reach Cirkewwa Harbor, where you'll be able to board one of the regular ferries to the island of Gozo.

What people are saying about Gozo
The tour was good and well organised. Comfortable boat but P.A system was not brilliant so missed a lot of the commentary. The stop to swim was beautiful and everyone took advantage of this , in beautiful clear blue water. Comino was a bit disappointing as over crowded. Deckchairs and an umbrella cost 15 euro. The food vans although convenient were didn't compliment the beautiful location . Gozo trip was good. We visited Xlendi. The beach here was tiny but nice restaurants and you can swim in the sea via small ladders from the waters edge. . All in all a decent day out at a very reasonable price.
This tour is a good introduction to the island of Gozo. Our guide Regina was very good. The Ferry Terminal is extremely busy with other tours as are the major sites included in the itinerary. The optional short boat trip to the caves is a must. I agree with other reviewers that it would have been better to have had more time at the ancient sites and miss out on the shopping. Lunch, as it is on all these types of tours,was pretty basic but there was more than enough to eat and there was insufficient time and possibly choice to eat independently.
We picked up the Bus at a well marked stop outside of the Valletta city gate. Some of the other drop off/pick up points were not so well marked and you needed to have a clear mental map in your head. A flyer for each location maybe priced at one Euro would be useful for those without this ability. Very good tour despite some reckless driving on one of the buses. Can thoroughly recommend this as an informative day out.
Precooked before we left home based on previous reviews and didn’t let us down. A very good way of seeing the rest of Malta as it made the various stops to pick up other passengers. It’s a long, jam packed day and not for the unfit, however it’s a tour not to be missed if it’s your first Malta holiday. Our guide Mario was so passionate about teaching us about his eclectic country - we were all eager to learn.
The hornblower tour is something different! It's a small boat with room for sunbathing and with a glide to go in the water. The other boats you see are huge boats where they squeeze as many people as possible together... The crew is lovely and friendly! Also the personal touch with our driver on Gozo, Edward, was so nice. It made our day even better. By far the best experience of our holiday!
