Mainly untouched by tourist influences, Gozo is beautiful island just south of Sicily, accessible via ferry from Malta. With a laid-back outlook on life, the locals are often found lining the streets, simply gossiping with family or just watching the world go by. I may be biased but I think this medetrr island has some of the most beautiful beaches I've ever visited, heres' my guide to the best beaches the island has to offer.
After visiting for nearly 20 years and being related to majority of the inhabitants on the island, I'd like to consider myself a professional when it comes to Gozo. Whilst our family are from Nadur and we often stay in the east of the island, Gozo is only 14km by 7km, so its fairly easy to visit everything the small Mediterranean island has to offer. Despite it's size, Gozo has a rather devastating past, whilst inhabited by the Knights of St John, it suffered the Great Siege in which the majority of locals were taken as slaves by the Turkish. Moreover, whilst an advantage during WWII, due to its advantageous proximity to Africa and Italy, Malta was heavily bombed. Despite this, Gozo remains a cheery peaceful island, decorated with idyllic beaches and peaceful villages, and until recently has remained mainly tourist-free.
