When: The sun can help make everything better, and luckily, Gozo isn’t shy when it comes to sharing the rays. Visit in May and get a warm glow to see you through the rest of the dreary British summer.
Where: As the island’s so small, you can choose anywhere and still be able to make time to see everything. For convenience though, we’d recommend Xlendion. Found in the south-east of the island, you’ll be in a great location to lay by the beach or peruse the town centre of Victoria.
Why: If you’ve got a big decision to make, if you need some time to reflect or just to get your bearings, Gozo is the place to do it.
When: If you’re not going on a group holiday for all-night parties, then you must be going to lie on a beach and grab a tan. Head on in the height of summer when the sun will be shining at about 30C.
Where: If Gozo is still firmly top of your list, then head to Xaghra in the centre of the island so you’re not far from all of its best bits.
Why: The island of Malta is better for groups than Gozo, with the town of St. Julians becoming bigger and bigger in the nightlife scene. Top DJs flock to the town to put on night after night of unforgettable parties. If you and your mates just want to chill, then sure – Gozo is for you!
When: Spring, summer, autumn, winter ... whenever you like. Of course, it’s easier to be all loved up if the sun is shining rather than when you’re a bit a soggy (although rainfall isn’t too common, even in the colder months), but hey ho – you go when it suits you!
Where: Absorb the beauty of the harbour at Mgarr and see that beauty shine from each other’s faces. Alright, we might be going a bit far there but you get the picture. Alternatively, stay in the north so you can discover those concealed coves hand in hand.
Why: Discover this hidden part of the world together. There’s nothing more romantic that stolen glances across an undiscovered bay or in an intimate restaurant ... okay, we know we’re being mushy, but you’re going to love it!
When: Gozo has got pretty spectacular weather year-round, but if you want guaranteed sunshine, the summer months are your best bet. Trust us – when the sun hits the ocean waves, your breath will be taken away – especially if you’re admiring them from the cliff top at Xlendi Bay.
Where: The town centre is a great choice for families to stay, too. Only a short distance from the breath-taking Temples of Ggantija and with a range of quaint restaurants, cafes and shops to explore, you won’t have to travel far for day trips or feeding the little ones’ tums.
Why: A Gozo holiday will be one you’ll never forget – so much so, you can expect your kids’ kids and their kids to be taken back here, generation after generation. History meets beauty and culture meets intrigue – Gozo has it all.
