A Memorable Trip To Gozo

By Brian Haines

Malta is one of the preferred destinations for beach holidays in Europe, being a favorite vacation spot, especially for Irish and British tourists. This happens because there are many common things between holiday makers from these two countries and the Maltese people such as historical facts (Malta obtained the independence from the UK in 1964), the language (beside Maltese, English is the second official language of the country) and the circulation rules, to enumerate just a few of them. Of course, Malta is visited by vacationers from many other countries, actually from the entire world, attracted by the year-round splendid weather, rich historical remains, specific cultural heritage, gorgeous beaches, crystal-clear waters, and excellent accommodation offered by most resorts and hotels in Malta.

Malta is an archipelago which lies in the heart of Mediterranean Sea (93 kilometers – 58 miles – off the coast of Sicily, Italy), being comprised by several islands, three bigger (Malta, Gozo and Comino) and other smaller, uninhabited islets – Cominotto, Filfla, Fungus Rock, Manoel Island, and Islands of St. Paul (Selmunett Island).

There are also a few rocks, populated only by seabirds. Most tourists are landing or debarking on the main islands, especially on island of Malta and island of Gozo, because there are settled the main towns of the country and the best resorts where can be spent excellent holidays in luxurious hotels and villas, many of them having private pools.

Gozo, the second largest island of archipelago after island of Malta, attracts many vacationers, even if it is considered as having a more rural atmosphere. Perhaps this fact, beside the scenic hills that can be seen everywhere, draws there tourists seeking a more relaxed and peaceful holiday. Hotels in Gozo are not so many as on the bigger island of Malta, but it offer also great accommodation, good services and many vacation amenities. Some of the best holiday resorts in Gozo are Hotel Kempinski, Hotel Ta’Cenc (both being 5 star hotels), Grand Hotel, Hotel Cornucopia (4 star hotels), and Hotel Down Town (3 star accommodation unit).

As any other Mediterranean country, Malta attracts foremost people interested in spending beach holidays, but in the same time to this destination travel a lot of people interested in spending cultural vacations. The multitude of medieval buildings, churches, military fortifications, and other remains are spots which draw to Malta many tourists of all ages. Some of the main places where go the visitors during a holiday on Gozo are the Aurora Theater, the Astra Theater, the Cathedral Church of Gozo, St. George’s Basilica and Parish, Santwarju tal-Madonna ta’ Pinu, the Inland Sea, the Fungus Rock, the Azure Window, Ramla Bay, and Fontana Springs.

On the island can be found also many restaurants serving excellent Maltese dishes (like stuffed globe artichokes, fried rabbit, baked beef olives, spaghetti with octopus sauce, baked macaroni, or kosksu with broad beans), coffee shops, bars, and a multitude of shops where can be found many local products.
