A Weekend Exploring Gozo

Welcome to my blog once again, 😚

Today I will show you how my weekend went in Gozo when I visited. It was a lovely summer day and what else can we do during the hot summer days? Malta is small but fascinating and full of surprises island, you can never be possibly bored here. Gozo is the sister island of Malta and it is smaller but not less interesting and exciting for visiting! Check the map below and you will how Malta and Gozo are extremely close to each other with Comino just in between them. By the way, another blog will be coming soon with exploring Comino and you will be able to see the clear waters and amazing nature I will be sharing. 

Below you can see the map of Malta, Gozo, and Comino:


Surely it probably looks very tiny to you when you look at the map at first but once you visit the islands and see how many opportunities there are here you would be nothing else but in love with the environment. The all-island is basically with architecture from ages and that's what makes it so special. My favorite buildings from the architecture here are the churches, incredible, amazing, beautiful, and historical. I can not possibly find the right words to describe how much I admire the beauty of the architecture here. 

I live in Malta for almost 4 years now and I can proudly say that I am feeling more than satisfied. I have nothing missing here, there is literally everything you need. Most importantly the economy of the island is very stable and the weather for those who like to live in hot places, Malta is the right place to live in.
Gozo on the other hand is very peaceful and there are not so many people living in there as there are in Malta but still enough crowded. You would be surprised how many young people choose Gozo to live in and work remotely from there. Since Malta is becoming such an interesting place for tourists from all around the world, I believe that sooner or later Gozo would become more attractive to tourists.

Our trip to Gozo started with visiting a small village called Ta'Dbiegi Crafts Village, however mostly everything was closed because it was a Sunday but it is a lovely place with small shops around where you can find even a small cute coffee with AC and delicious sweets with some nice cappuccino. The coffee somehow reminds me of the English one but that's probably because Malta was an English colony. This can be seen in the video attached below. 

We also visited the cliffs and we went on a small boat which was costing 4 euros a person to see the cliffs inside and under and it was incredible, very beautiful, I will definitely remember this for life! I would like to visit even one more time going under the cliffs because it is so relaxing and you just feel the nature around you and the beauty of the blue waters surrounding you.  Check the video to see the cliffs!

We then went to get some nice traditional Frita (pizza). This is a Gozotian pizza which is simply amazing! That Bacary is called Mekren's and it is established in 1899. Their bread and pizzas are made on a fire which I also included in the video. I can not express the taste of the food made in the Bacary but I can only tell you one word which is amazing!

We went to the beach called Ramla. That beach is very big with very nice sand, almost just like gold. However, when we enter the sea, we saw how rocky it is. The rocks are small and big and it is difficult at first but once we passed that part with the rocks there was only sand under and it was very peaceful and nice for swimming. I also would like to mention that there were some nice small fishes around, beautiful and very different from each other which means that the sea is clean! The nature here in Malta and Gozo is very beautiful! However, I recommend you to have shoes or sandals to be able to walk under the water because you might find even water urchins.

We also saw the sunset, 🌅 beautiful view is not enough to express the sunset on the island. It's just here that nature is different, it all looks so peaceful. The view from the ferry is also very nice, would be great if Malta decides to have ferry services ⛴ in between the cities because currently there is only Valletta - Sliema. However I strongly recommend you to try that ferry service even if it is only for 10 min, it's worth it! 

On the way back we also visited II-Fontana. This is basically a place laid on 29th January 1892 and it was consecrated 13 years later in 1904.  This place was used for washing clothes, however, you can still see some people using it even nowadays. I included all the videos in the vlog below so feel free to check it out!

To see the all environment and nature of Gozo I strongly recommend watching the full video with nice music in the background so you can enjoy it fully. 

Let me know your thoughts in the comments below, would love to hear them out!
