Gozo changes colour as the year progresses. The spring months bring some rainfall which turns the island into a verdant and highly productive garden. Growers here make the absolute most of these months because the summers are extremely hot and the land slowly turns from green to light brown as the sun intensifies.
Sun worshippers will love July and August but if you prefer cooler temperatures for your holiday, we recommend avoiding the height of summer. We run our holiday here from March through to September and those cooler earlier months are very popular. Spring and early summer bring a freshness and vibrancy to Gozo that is not always present in the longer and hotter days of summer when the island is a pretty laid-back place.
The Mediterranean views here are simply spectacular and a photographer’s dream. The secret is to capture the morning sunrise and evening’s sunset on the same day. It’s easily done, Gozo’s widest point is a mere 14km so getting from east to west in the intervening hours between sun up and sun down isn’t the most demanding of tasks!
Our holiday is based in the village of Xaghra. The accommodation is just a short walk from the lovely town square which is dominated at one end by a large basilica, while cafés and restaurants line the walkways. It’s a lovely, lovely place to relax and unwind after a day exploring the island.
