Go, Go, Go… Gozo!
Gozo, Malta’s sister island, is jam-packed with beauty. The natural scenery is magical; the historic locations are practically within walking distance from one another. Beautiful beaches; the clear blue Mediterranean; cliffs rising gently up from the secluded bays… fortified walls with their majestic look…
Check out Gozo’s most popular sites to visit when planning your trip to this unique island:
Gozo Citadel has recently undergone a major restoration-revamp. This quaint city surrounded by siege-proof walls is simply gorgeous. From The Citadel you will take in breath-taking views of the island of Gozo. Visiting this historic site lets you travel in time – back to World War II, and even prior to that, in some locations.
Fishing For Compliments!
Visiting Xlendi is a must when planning your trip to Gozo. Surrounded by high cliffs, this bay was once a key fishing village, essential to the economy of the Island. Xlendi is the place to go for the traditional Maltese cuisine experience, with an emphasis on delicious seafood.
Sands of Time!
The Ramla l-Ħamra is Gozo’s most famous beach; the combination of red sand and the bright blue sea is a sight for sore eyes. It is the perfect spot during the summer months for a day out with the children – a day to be spent swimming in the shallow pebbled sea, enjoying an ice cream and basking in the sun. This beach is the ideal venue for a stunning beach wedding. The distinctive red sand and exceptional scenery will be an incomparable setting for your wedding photography.
Besides beaches and historic buildings, Gozo also features unique churches.
One that is of significant importance to both the Maltese and Gozitan population, being Ta’ Pinu. It is a pilgrimage shrine where people from near and far congregate to pray.
The surroundings of this magnificent sanctuary have recently been adorned with a mosaic that features the 20 mysteries of the Rosary. Ta’ Pinu itself has also recently been refurbished, and it is looking more beautiful than ever!
