The area boasts stunning beaches with pristine clear water making it the ideal location for swimming and water sports.  Gozo is renowned for scuba diving thanks to its many reefs and caves and optimal conditions all year long.  It is also a great place for hiking, with coastal paths around most of the island with breathtaking views all around.  So if you enjoy the outdoors, this is the perfect location for you!  You can catch a short ferry ride to the main part of Malta where there are endless opportunities to explore a country rich in culture and history.
