  • Address: Gozo Island, Malta
One of 21 islands that make up the Maltese archipelago, Gozo has been inhabited for thousands of years. Today, visitors come to hike, scuba dive, relax on the beach, and visit the Neolithic Ggantija Temples, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Basics
All roads on Gozo lead to il-Rabat (Victoria), the island’s capital. Not more than 9 miles (15 kilometers) by 4 miles (7 kilometers) at its widest point, Gozo is tiny and easy to navigate. The 5,500-year-old Ggantija Temples are an absolute must-see, with ruins dating to around 3600 BC; another popular attraction is the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of Ta’ Pinu, Gozo’s most impressive church and the holiest site. Visit Gozo as part of a day tour from Malta, or combine your visit with a stop on the island of Comino and its Blue Lagoon. Explore Gozo island’s hidden gems on a quad-bike tour or ATV safari, or book a sunset tour to get a different perspective of Gozo’s most popular archaeological sites.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Public buses from Victoria pass all of Gozo’s major sights. Route 307 is most useful for Ggantija and Ta’ Pinu.
  • Beach lovers and snorkelers should head to Ramla Bay, Dwejra Bay, Mgarr ix-xini cove, or Xlendi Bay.
  • Use your MaltaPass for free entry to the Ggantija Temples and several museums.
  • Most sights on Gozo are accessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get to There
Ferries leaves from Cirkewwa, at the northern tip of Malta, to Mgarr Harbour on Gozo every 30 minutes. Between July and September, the service runs 24 hours a day; from October to June boats operate between 5am and 11pm. Trips take 25 minutes, and all the ferries take vehicles.

When to Get There
Gozo is most crowded in the summer months but can visited year-round. A mild climate means it’s possible to enjoy the beaches (and swim!) into November, and the winter months tend to be cool but sunny. The island may be the most colorful and beautiful in the springtime.

Gozo’s Villages
Gozo is a quiet island whose heart lies in its villages. Il-Qala offers incredible views of Comino and Malta, especially from the Il-Qala Belvedere. The picturesque village of Ix-Xaghra, not far from Ramla Bay, is home to not only the Ggantija Temples, but also the Pomskizillious Museum of Toys and the mythological Calypso’s Cave. L-Gharb is one of the island’s oldest villages and home to Ta’ Pinu, as well as a folklore museum.
