Gozo & Comino
Island of Gozo
Gozo is known to provide a tranquil haven for a tempo and scene change. The charm of Malta’s sister Island is immediately apparent; it’s greener, more rural and smaller, with life’s rhythms dictated by the seasons, fishing and agriculture.
Steeped in myth, Gozo is thought to be the legendary Calypso’s isle of Homer’s Odyssey – a peaceful, mystical backwater. Baroque churches and old stone farmhouses dot the countryside.
Gozo’s rugged landscape and spectacular coastline await exploration with some of the Mediterranean’s best dive sites.
The Island also comes complete with historical sites, forts and amazing panoramas, as well as one of the archipelago’s best-preserved prehistoric temples, Ggantija.
Gozo also possesses a nightlife and cultural calendar all of its own, with some great dining out.
Isle of Comino
Between Malta and Gozo lies Comino, a paradise for snorkellers, divers, windsurfers and walkers. The Isle’s Blue Lagoon, with its safe bathing in turquoise waters, makes an idyllic day out by boat. Carefree and car-free, Comino is a favourite escape all year round.
