The Island of Gozo region
Gozo is a quiet and rural island. Mild winters and loads of sunshine means it is surrounded with vineyards and olive groves. It's fascinating history and architecture give it a flavour of its own.
In the spring there are lovely walks and when the sun's too hot there are secluded bays to discover. Lots of snorkelling, scuba diving, or hire a boat for the day and go round the island or to Comino. Visit the fishing port of Mgarr and go by ferry or sea plane to Valletta - the Grand Harbour is amazing.
During the summer every village has a fiesta, so every weekend there are fireworks with each village trying to outstrip the other.
Xaghra has a busy, vibrant square with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to explore.
You will find good fruit and veg vans (well stocked with seasonal produce) in the village square early in the morning and the fishermen are often there too. The village is well located for access to all parts of the island.
There is a nightclub in Xlendi, carved into a cave, called La Grotta - a spectacular location for those who enjoy loud music and dancing.
