Accommodation to suit your taste and budget
In Gozo, you will find a variety of accommodation options that fit the many different requirements of travellers. Stay at a luxurious 5-star or 4-star hotel, a charming or sleek and stylish boutique hotel or opt for an intimate stay at a rented farmhouse or villa. You will also find a great selection of guesthouses, self-catering apartments, and B&Bs.
History, nature and the sea
Sometimes it’s difficult to believe that the small island of Gozo is so rich in history and culture. Exploring the town of Victoria, the Citadel and the various villages and hamlets of the island is an experience you will treasure. Beyond the historical aspect of the island, nature and the sea are just a step away. Gozo is truly a case where you can have it all!
Seek out the sunsets
Sunset watching is pretty easy in Gozo. There are many places where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset, perhaps on top of the list are Dwejra and Xwejni Bays.
Book one of the cosy sea-view restaurants and savour the tastes of the traditional Gozitan cuisine. While Gozitan cuisine is firmly embedded in the local produce tied with the typical Mediterranean seasons, Gozitan chefs will pleasantly surprise you with a wide spectrum menu.
Take a boat ride
You cannot visit Gozo without enjoying a boat trip around the coast. Boat trips depart from Mġarr Harbour, Xlendi, Marsalforn and Dwejra. Enjoy a day out at sea, explore the many secret coves and savour these moments with your loved one.
Take a boat to the island of Comino and explore the island. In summer, the island’s turquoise waters are a real mecca for tourists but in winter the solitude and silence of the place mean that you will truly enjoy quality time for two. Walk up to the coastal tower of Santa Marija and feast your eyes on the views across the channel and stroll down to the Blue Lagoon.
Active Holidays for Two
Indulge in outdoor fun activities with your significant other. Gozo provides the opportunity to try hiking, biking and abseiling, but you might also be interested in sea sports including diving and kayaking.
As we come closer to February, Gozo will start preparing for Valentine’s Day celebrations. But Gozo is not only a romantic destination during this month. After all, it is the island where Homer says the nymph Calypso captivated the hero Ulysses with her magic for seven long years!
