Location description from owner

The Island of Gozo region

Gozo is an enchanting, and relatively unspoiled, Maltese island where life moves at a leisurely pace. It is greener and more rural than Malta, having a magnificent and tranquil landscape with deep valleys and picturesque hilltop villages with imposing baroque parish churches and charming rustic farmhouses. The dramatic coastline has tiny creeks, turquoise bays, majestic rock formations, stretches of limestone criss-crossed with salt pans, and high cliffs falling in sheer drops into the clear waters.There are excellent safe beaches of red sand, particularly at Ramla Bay and San Blas Bay, and many other secluded places for swimming, diving, and snorkelling. Ramla is Gozo's largest sandy bay and one of the most beautiful on the Maltese Islands. The beach here is of a deep, reddish-gold hue. The bay is surrounded by countryside and nestles below steep terraced hills and the mythical Calypso's Cave.Ramla Bay has been voted by international travel journalists as one of the finest beaches in the Mediterranean. Gozo's longest and best red sand beach offers splendid views, a summer snack bar, water sports, sun beds and umbrellas. Its sister beach San Blas is considered even more beautiful by many and is much more secluded. The tiny island of Comino has some of the clearest waters and best swimming in the Mediterranean, as well as boasting a series of enchanting inlets and crystal caves.There is a lot to see and explore on the island, for example, there is the imposing Citadel with its numerous museums, the Gaantija megalithic temples dating from about 3600 BC, Ta Pinu Basilica which is a famous centre of pilgrimage, and the spectacular natural phenomena of the Inland Sea and Azures Window at Dwejra. The people are welcoming and friendly, and, if you want to get away from it all, you can. Gozo has all the essential ingredients that make it an ideal relaxing holiday destination. Ggantija Temples in Xaghra, Gozo, are one of the most important archaeological sites in Malta. The origins of Ggantija date back to the Ggantija phase (3600 – 3200 B.C.). John Otto Bayer was the first to excavate the temples in 1827. Extensive archaeological and restoration work was carried out in the early 20th century to ensure their preservation.Gozo boasts three main ports: Xlendi, Marsalforn and Mgarr. Both Xlendi and Marsalforn are only used for small pleasure boats making them excellent night spots for eating out. Marsalforn is a stretch of beach lined with small bars and restaurants and is only a small drive away from the islands salt pans, which are a great spot for bbq's and watching evening sunsets.Xlendi is also a great place to eat out and features magnificent views from a stepped walk up the cliffs. It has many places great for swimming and starts getting lively early evening.

Gharb

Found in the Gharb area is the Inland sea, Azures Window and Dwejara boast some of the most spectacular natural features on the island. These magnificent sites are just moments from Gharb. This location is renowned for excellent swimming and diving.Another site not to be missed is the main church in the village square in Gharb. it has fantastic carvings in the Baroque style.
