 Gozo (Ghawdex)

Gozo, the second largest Island in the Maltese Archipelago with a population of less than 30,000. The capital city of Gozo is Victoria. In maltese Gozo is called Ghawdex (pronounced aww-dash). Gozo is a whole new experience of its own and merits a holiday all for itself. You can get a taste of Gozo in a day or two, but you'll probably want more of it. Food, architecture, the people, the scenery, all are quite different from Malta. What is most evident in Gozo is that the Gozitans care more for their envoironment, and normally Gozo is always a few years back from Malta. A maltese going to Gozo already feels he is cut away into a quieter life.

Gozo is greener than Malta and the scenery around the coast is fantastic. There is too much to say about Gozo in this one page, but if you're looking for a truly quiet holiday then consider staying there for a week or so. The Island has alot to explore, the restaurants are good and the people are very helpful. It is ideal for trekking & cycling and there are enough country paths to explore to last you a lifetime.

Ferries to Gozo leave regularly from Cirkewwa. You can board the ferry by car or as a passenger. A bus service is available in Gozo, but to make most of your visit hiring a car is recomended.
