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. It is also notable that the island’s calendar of yearly events includes not only typical summer Mediterranean feasts but also a veritable musical programme including international music festivals and an opera season. Beyond the culture, nature and the sea are just a step away. Gozo is truly a case where you can have it all!
Sunset watching is pretty easy in Gozo. Experience beautiful sunsets from different vantage points and let it inspire your souls.Magnificent displays can be witnessed along the coastal areas on the western side of the island like Xlendi, Dwejra and Xwejni.But equally suggestive are the sunsets from the higher points of Gozo like the cliffs on the southern side of the island, the hilltops like Xagħra, Nadur, Żebbuġ and the Citadel.
The artist Vincent Van Gogh once wrote: ‘For my part I know nothing with any certainty. But the sight of the stars makes me dream.’ Gozo, is synonymous with pristine beaches and crystal blue seas, lively festas and historic landscapes. Yet, when the night falls, another amazing spectacle awaits – a star-lit sky that can be enjoyed from various locations around the island. Because Gozo is a small island with a rugged, unspoilt and under-developed coastline, it gives nature lovers, stargazers and astronomers the rare chance to witness the most amazing dark skies over an open sea.
Locations such as Dwejra are a fantastic place to see stars, planets, space stations, the annual Perseid meteor showers, eclipses and of course The Milky Way over Fungus Rock.
While witnessing the night sky in Dwejra, appreciate the fact that you are in a rare location where you can still see The Milky Way in all its glory.
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.
Gozo is indeed a romantic destination all year round. After all, it is the island where Homer says the nymph Calypso captivated the hero Ulysses with her magic for seven long years!
