Of the three islands that make up the Maltese archipelago – Gozo, the second largest, is the jewel in Malta’s crown. I went there to find out more, with a little band of travel agents and the Maltese Tourist Office. This small island is a relaxed hideaway, and only a 20 minute ferry transfer or 10 minutes by seaplane from Malta itself – we tried one in each direction. It’s perfect for walking and cycling, while the warm safe waters of the Mediterranean and safe waters have some fantastic diving. It’s great for sailing, fishing and a whole variety of watersports. It was only May and it was already in the high 20s!
Gozo has lots of history and culture too. There are the Ggantija temples, the oldest free standing religious structures in the world, built around 5,500 years ago! Then there are some wonderful natural structures too, for example, Dwerja, an impressive Azure window – a natural arch, about 20 metres high, is just one of many unusual and fascinating sights.
And did I mention the food? The Gozitan cuisine is typical Mediterranean with a twist. I tried “Gbejniet”, a hard white cheese traditionally made from unpasteurised goat’s milk, dried in baskets and served with olive oil. I had this with “hobz” a crispy Gozitan bread – delicious!
Gozo has everything to make a perfect holiday – the weather, the beaches, the food, and the sightseeing, as well as some great activities, jeep adventures, abseiling, and even taking a boat to nearby Comino for a swim in Blue Lagoon Bay.
And finally, before I headed back to the “rat race” I had a relaxing massage at the Kempinksi Hotel’s Ayurveda Spa. Mmm Mmm!
Could Gozo be for you? I’m just dying to share my experiences with you!
