Gozo

Gozo is the sister island of Malta. The island lies only a few kilometers away from Malta. Despite being similar the island has a different flair from Malta, besides the island more vegetation, therefore much greener than Malta.

A few characteristic comparing Malta and Gozo:

  Malta Gozo
Population: approx. 385,000 approx. 27,000
Size: 316 square kilometres 67 square kilometers
Capital: Valletta Victoria (Rabat)


Why visit Gozo?


Gozo has something to offer which Malta does not have. For example on one hand the Azure Window, a naturally formed arch on the coast. On the other hand the capital Victoria with the small romantic lanes and the large bastions, from which one has an excellent view of the whole of Gozo and parts of Malta and Comino. Then there is the beautiful beach, the Ramla Bay, and the historical temples of Ggantija. In addition the flair of the island and the inhabitants is a completely different one than in Malta.

Ferry to and from Malta

Ferry to and from Malta

One can reach Gozo easily from Malta with the ferry. There are two operating routes from Malta to Gozo. The first and most commonly used is from Cirkewwa (Malta) to Mgarr (Gozo) and the second is from Sa Maison (near Valletta/Malta) to Mgarr (Gozo). Both routes are operated by the enterprise: Gozo Channel Ltd. The routes operate once per hour and the crossing lasts only 20 - 30 minutes. ... more

Pretty Bay

The Pretty Bay is next to the city centre of Birzebbuga (or better the city centre is next to the bay). The beach is very beautiful and the water is crystal blue.

The Popeye village

The movie about Popeye (starring Robin Williams in his first ever movie!) was shot here in Malta in 1980. Only for the movie a whole village was constructed. The village is still there, north-westwards on the island - unfortunately it’s not easy reachable.

Prices in Malta

The cost of living is comparably average. Approximately 2/3 of the products consumed have to be imported from abroad. Unfortunately, the small market allows many monopolies to emerge.
