Gozo's where to go-go for the perfect beach vacation

Surrounded by the crystal-blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, Gozo is the second-largest island making up the country of Malta, after the island of Malta itself. Inhabited since roughly 5,000 B.C., today just over 37,000 Gozitans call it home. More rural than its sister island, Gozo is a tranquil oasis of rolling hills and sandy beaches. A Gozo vacation rental will put you on the doorstep of some of the best diving in the world. Thought to be the legendary island where Calypso detained Greek king Odysseus in the famous Homeric myth, one visit and you, too, might never want to leave.

Go deep and work on your tan among the Gozitans

If you're into diving, or just always wanted to give it a try, you're in luck—Gozo is renowned as 1 of the prime diving spots in the world. You can perfect your technique off the shore or at the island's inland sea. If dry land is more your speed, there are plenty of pristine stretches of sand where you can kick back, work on your tan, or catch some stunning sunrises and sunsets. Sports fanatics are also in for a treat, because the island has its own soccer and rugby clubs.

Get lost in a land of ancient temples and Hollywood sets

Between the ancient Ggantija temple complex and the Megalithic Temples of Malta, you'll find some of the world's oldest structures just a stone's throw from your Gozo vacation rental. For more recent history, check out the Citadel perched on a hill overlooking the town of Victoria. The Xwejni Saltpans are fascinating to explore, and you might even catch some sea-salt harvesting in progress. A visit to the island of Malta will treat you to the Malta National Aquarium and Popeye Village. Originally used as a set for the 1980 movie, today it offers a theme park and boat rides.

The weather in Gozo will make you want to go

Leave all thoughts of winter behind when you head to your Gozo vacation rental, because the only white stuff you'll see here is the sand. Highs hover pleasantly in the 70s and 80s from May to October, with low 90s not uncommon in the hottest months of July and August. You'll see the coldest temperatures from December to March, when lows dip into the upper 40s and highs just barely top 60. The water temps are just as pleasant, topping out in the low 80s in the peak summer month of August. Just don't forget the sunscreen.

Discover an island off the coast of an island

The second largest of 3 islands making up the Malta archipelago, Gozo is roughly the size of Manhattan, but couldn't be further from big city life. Known for rolling green hills that are so scenic they featured them on the country's coat of arms, rural Gozo is a calm oasis of fishing and agriculture. Plenty of sandy beaches line its shores, and the bays are home to diverse marine life. Even more can be found in the island's inland sea. Caves connect the interior to the coast, where you'll find the Mediterranean waters and sea life that draw divers from all over.
