With the island being only 1/3 of the size of Malta, nothing is far away...
This is great for diving as, if you are very unlucky and there are strong winds, your holiday is not spoilt, as it would be in mainland locations. Sheltered conditions on the far side of the island are, at worst, only a 20 minute drive away, always giving us somewhere good to dive.
Gozo has a wonderful climate, beaches and a rich heritage. English is the second language and cars drive on the left side of the road, giving Gozo a sense of home away from home for the British holidaymaker.
Gozo is less expensive than nearby Malta and a lot less built up. The pace of life here is much slower and the locals are extremely friendly and laid back. Gozo offers true island life and a real chance to get away from it all without the crowds.
