9 obvious (and not so obvious) places to visit in Gozo
Time to prepare a checklist!

Kristina Cassar Dowling

Gozo in Autumn is beautiful! Our greener sister island soars in the months of October and November due to the increased amount of rainfall on the islands and the decrease in visitors to the island.

The beaches, valleys, fresh water springs and historical points in Gozo are all worth a visit during the autumn, but here are a select few of my personal favourites for you to enjoy on your next trip.

Ramla Bay

The picturesque Ramla Bay never fails to impress, but the autumn feel on Ramla is beyond belief beautiful! Pack a little picnic basket and a couple of blankets, possibly a football and head to the beach for a couple of hours.

Xlendi Bay

A great spot for lunch or dinner and the perfect spot for afternoon tea. Xlendi is a picturesque bay full of entertainment spots and leisure outlets, but a quieter side of Xlendi does actually exist - head for the cliffs and find some peace.

A seaside village that captures the tranquillity of the island with its traditional fishing boats, small chapels and nearby beaches. The Marsalforn area is a great spot to sit and people watch.

The Citadel

The newly renovated Citadella (or Citadel) is found in the heart of Victoria, Rabat. Similar to Valletta and Mdina in concept with its fortified walls, this beautifully structured landmark is well worth a visit.

Mgarr ix-Xini

Mgarr ix-Xini carries some historical worth that is due a mention. This inlet was allegedly used by the knights to hide their galleys during the Ottoman War of 1565. Excellent for a brisk walk and mellow adventure.

Hondoq ir-Rummien

Hondoq ir-Rummien is an excellent location for diving. With a spectacular view of Comino and Malta above sea level and vibrant saline under the waves, this spot can easily become your favourite on the island.

Wied L-Ghasri

Quite possibly the most stunning view of the island. Zebbug’s Wied L-Ghasri is accessed via unlevelled ground where travellers will then need to descend a flight of steps to get to the beautiful pebbled cove. Give this one a try.

Lunzjata Valley

A fertile valley that is currently used as farming ground where locals take their pick of the freshly picked fruit and veggies of the land. The farm to table concept is perfectly executed here.

Ghajn Tuta

Ghajn Tuta is a fresh water spring situated in-between Munxar and Kercem. The ice-cold water flows from the rock into sections divided into washing bays where our ancestors washed their clothes, welcomed their livestock and frolicked in the blazing hot summers.

Gozo’s undeniable beauty is seen throughout the island and holds adventure at its very core. The landscapes, seascapes and iconic structures that tower on the land can be rediscovered again and again.
