Gozo, the smaller island of the Maltese archipelago, is around 70 sq kilometres with a population of just over 30,000. Victoria (or Rabat as it is locally known) is the only town and commercial centre of the island and is surrounded by 14 villages, all with their particular character and even accents. Connected to the mainland, Malta, with a very adequate ferry service one can say that Gozo is a “gem ready to be discovered.”
Surrounded by the blue Mediteranean sea the island offers great sites for swimming, snorkelling, diving, canoeing and other water sports. With its many sandy/pebbly beaches the visitor has a good choice where to relax. Gozo’s long history, archaeology, culture, folklore, beautiful landscapes and beaches makes this island interesting and ideal for an away-from-it-all holiday. And together with the many restaurants offering different cuisines, open-air wine bars, pubs and gelaterias, the visitor will quickly adapt to the locals laid-back life style.
