The trio of Maltese islands is situated bang in the middle of the Mediterranean. Gozo forms part of that trio: the middle sister, it is smaller than Malta and bigger than Comino. It is 14kms long and 7kms wide meaning you will have plenty of time to explore the character and topography of the whole island during your stay here.
Gozo still evokes a sense of magic and myth, it is a place for history lovers to come and explore an almost untouched island brimming with stories of a bygone era. Life here is at a pleasant and sleepy pace, all wrapped up in a welcoming and harmonious environment.

The Island of Gozo region
Gozo, which in Maltese is called Ghawdex (pronounced: Awdesh), is a derivation of other older names such as Gaulos. It has an area of 67 square kms, is 14 kms long and 7 kms wide. With a coastline of 43 km, it is the second largest island of the Maltese Archipelago that, together with the smaller isle of Comino and the main island of Malta form the Republic of Malta. Gozo is popularly called The Island of Calypso, that is a nickname originating from the Greek mythological location of Ogygia referred to in Homer's Odyssey. In this epic poem, the fabled island was controlled by the nymph Calypso, who had detained the Greek hero Odysseus for seven long years as prisoner of love.
The Maltese Islands are situated in the centre of the Mediterranean - 93 km south of Italy and 290 km north of North Africa. Gozo lies about 5 km in the North West of Malta and the distance between Cirkewwa in Malta and Mgarr Harbour in Gozo, involves a 25 minute ferry crossing. It therefore enjoys warm summers and mild winters and this makes it the ideal holiday destination at any time of the year.
In comparison with mainland Malta, one finds a more varied geology and larger relief contrasts, with typical flat-topped hills. Over 31000 people inhabit the island and this amounts to one-twelfth of the overall population of Malta. When compared to the overall area of the Maltese Islands, Gozo covers approximately one-third of that area. This means that the island of Gozo is not overpopulated, and therefore greener and quite more peaceful.
The climate is warm and healthy with mild, moist winters and dry, hot summers. Frost and snow are unknown. Rain falls only for very short periods, averaging 583mm in a whole year. Temperatures for the November – April average 14°C, and 23°C for the May – October period. Average daily sunshine hours for winter are 6.5 hours, and for summer 10.5 hours.
The hottest period is from mid-July to mid-September. Gozo’s perennial sunshine and unpolluted sea make it a holiday destination to which tourists like to return year after year.
