The Island of Gozo region
The Maltese archipelago lies at the centre of the Mediterranean, consisting of three islands: Malta, Gozo & Comino with a total population of 400,000. The relationship between the Islanders and the various nationalities that occupied Malta over the centuries has created a marriage of styles and traditions, giving the Islands a fascinating eclectic culture.
GOZO, or GHAWDEX [Awdesch] as it is locally known, lies 20 minutes away by ferry from Malta. Measuring about one third the size of Malta it has a character quite distinct from Malta. Flat-topped hills and intensely cultivated fields characterize the landscape whilst the coast has rugged cliffs, steep valleys and beautiful inlets. Baroque churches and old stone farmhouses dot the countryside.
With mostly sunny weather, expansive beaches, a thriving nightlife and 7,000 years of history, there is a great deal to see and do. With a little help from any guidebook, captivating places of interest are immediately identified.

It is the second-largest village in Gozo, with a population of 4,200 people and is only four kilometers from Victoria the capital city of Gozo.
It is home to various historical sites, amongst which are the famous Ggantija temples. Their markers erected the two Ggantija temples during the Neolithic Age (c.3600-2500 BC), which makes these temples more than 5500 years old and some of the world’s oldest manmade religious structures. They have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Xaghra, overlooks Ramla Bay. It’s particularly golden-reddish sand makes this beach unique. Roman remains lie beneath the sand and the famous Calypso Cave overlooks the western side of the beach. According to tradition, this is the cave referred to by Homer in The Odyssey. The nymph Calypso lived in this cave and it is where she entertained Ulysses for seven years before he resumed his journey.
Xaghra also overlooks the village of Marsalforn, the most popular tourist resort on the island. It is well served with restaurants, bars and beaches. The village has also become the premiere diving centre on Gozo, with several scuba diving schools locating on the sea front.
Sites to visit in Xaghra: Ta Sansuna, Xerri’s Grotto, Ninu’s Cave, Kola Windmill, Ggantija, Stone Circle, Santa Verna, Museum of Toys, Calypso Cave, Xaghra Church.

We had a wonderful holiday on the Island of Gozo staying at one of Abraham's places- Gellewza in the village of Xaghra. Abraham and his lovely wife Michelle on hand to deliver shopping and arrange transport and make all arrangements. Very smooth transfers etc. Accommodation wonderful and of extremely high standard.
Would recommend without hesitation. The village is beautiful and friendly, we were there during the run up to the festival in Xaghra and the atmosphere in the centre was wonderful. Victoria is also well worth visiting, especially the Citadel and Ricardo's. Ramla beach is a must, probably one of the best beaches we have ever been too. You don't need to hire a car, taxi's and mini buses can be booked for the day and or evening at reasonable prices. There were many restaurants to visit all within easy reach by taxi, all very good standard.
