Why You Should Go to Gozo

While tourists flock to the island of Malta for year-round sunny weather, beautiful clear and warm waters, and a lively atmosphere, visiting its little sister Gozo, is like stepping back in time. Steeped in history stretching back 7,000 years, with each passing invader leaving their mark, the narrow streets are lined with stunningly preserved and maintained original limestone buildings.

Gozo is not only a beautiful un-commercial holiday destination, it also offers some of the best diving in the Mediterranean. With incredible drop-offs, caves, tunnels, grottos, and spectacular underwater scenery that extends over more than 50 dive sites, this tiny island is a haven for learners and experienced divers alike.

Planet Dive Holidays’ Top Tips

The Diving in Gozo

Gozo’s water clarity and great year-round conditions make it the ideal diving destination, and what’s even better is that it’s within easy reach of the UK and most major European airports – so it’s perfect for quick breaks. The dive sites are richly varied, with a range of tunnels, caves, and arches for more experienced divers, and interesting, yet easy, diving which is sure to get beginners hooked. This is also a great place to introduce your family to the wonders of the underwater world.

Some memorable sites include the Blue Hole, a naturally formed rock arch with a cave at the bottom, where seahorses are regularly found; Cathedral Cave with its beautiful damselfish; Zurziep Reef with its large numbers of schooling fish and shallow caves; and Xlendi Bay Tunnel, a popular night diving spot packed with golden zoanthids, red starfish and sponges, green and purple algae and plenty of bristle worms.

Visiting Gozo

The towns on Gozo are beautiful and traditional by day, and come alive in the evenings with the sound of clinking wine glasses and laughter. As the island of Gozo is so small, you could visit a different town each night, where you will find an abundance of traditional restaurants and small bars, along with a few fancy wine bars. Gozo also has a number of unique and stunning small boutique hotels that combine fantastic hospitality with amazing attention to detail. Charming and chic, these properties offer luxury amenities and a high standard of accommodation at great value for money. For the perfect experience, combine your stay on Gozo with a few nights in the historic capital city of Valletta on Malta, located close to the airport.

Contact Planet Dive Holidays, whose staff have first-hand experience of the destination and can provide expert advice tailored to your needs.
