When you visit Gozo as often as I do, it’s easy to forget that there was once a time – long ago now – when I’d never even heard of the place.
So it never surprises me to meet people who have also never heard of Gozo – and they certainly couldn’t point to it on a map. I’m not entirely sure why you’d be visiting this page if you hadn’t heard of Gozo, but in the hope that you’re here through some happy accident, let me answer your question:
Where is Gozo?
Gozo is part of the Maltese islands, in the Mediterranean Sea. It sits 5km to the north-west of Malta and about 50 miles south of Sicily. But it is only a tiny speck in the Mediterranean, so if you’re looking for it on Google Earth, you’ll need to zoom in!
Isn’t Gozo the same as Malta?
If there’s a second place for most frequently asked question, this is probably it. Most people who know about the island know it for its connections with Malta. But Gozo isn’t Malta. It’s a unique and distinct place in its own right: quieter, less heavily populated, greener – a place with its own feel and culture.
Malta has many wonderful attractions, but if you’ve only visited Malta, you’re missing a big part of the experience.
Now that you know where Gozo is, I’d recommend a visit. You can explore our range of gorgeous Gozo villas and farmhouses here.
