Destination guide

Be on the lookout for the perfect vacation spot

Perched on a hill overlooking the picturesque island of Gozo, Nadur serves as a natural watchtower of sorts for the island. The name "Nadur" aptly comes from the native word for lookout, and the tiny Gozitan village offers all the stunning views you'd expect from a place with such a name. With a year-round population of under 5,000 people, you're sure to find plenty of relaxation and solitude at your Nadur vacation rental. While it may be small, there's no shortage of activities and sightseeing to keep you busy while you're here, as well as some fine shopping and dining to boot.

Things to do

It's a tale of 2 towers on top of a tower

Nadur may be a natural watchtower in its own right, but that doesn't mean there aren't other historic towers to explore. There's the 18th-century Isopu Tower, as well as Ta' Kenuna Tower, a British semaphore tower built in 1848. The baroque St. Peter and Paul Basilica, built in 1760, dominates the skyline, and stands across from a historic stone cross. In Dahlet Qorrot, you'll find fascinating boathouses built right into the cliffs, having been converted from natural caves. Museum buffs should check out the Kelinu Galea Maritime Museum for a range of nautical memorabilia.


You'll be seeing red in Nadur (on the beach, at least)

Being a Mediterranean island, obviously there are beaches to enjoy near your Nadur vacation rental. There are plenty to choose from for working on that tan or enjoying the refreshing seawater, including the picturesque red sands at San Blas. Swimming, snorkeling, hiking, and picnics will fill your days. If you're more of a culture vulture, the island of Gozo has not 1, but 2 opera houses. There's also a lively annual religious festival right in town, so you can celebrate like a local if your timing is right.


Sweet Maltese breezes make for lovely summers

Summer is peak season for Nadur vacation rentals, thanks in large part to the stunning weather. You'll see plenty of sunshine and pleasant sea breezes, as well as temperatures in the 70s or higher from May to October. The mercury peaks in the mid- to upper 80s in July and August. You'll probably want a coat or a sweater if you're coming between December and March, when lows dip into the 40s. The majority of the rain falls in the rainy season of November and December.

Natural features

Forage for fossils along the Mediterranean coast

You may think of beaches when you think of the Mediterranean, but Gozo has a lot more to offer. Of course, there are plenty of sandy stretches (both red and white) to enjoy, complemented by the stunning blue seawaters. But there are also a surprising number of farms dotted throughout the island's fertile valleys, growing apples, peaches, and plums, along with lemon and orange orchards. Rocky Dahlet Qorrot is chock-full of fossils embedded in its limestone cliffs, so dust off your amateur archaeologist hat. The endangered Mistra Rocks ecosystem is home to plenty of animals and shrubs.
