About Gozo

Gozo is a small but mighty place, with plenty to delight those on holiday in Malta.

Although it's the second-largest of Malta's islands, it's really quite compact at just 26 square miles, and is relatively untouched as well, highly regarded for its pretty and dramatic landscapes, from the hills to the coast.
