You find Gozo in the centre of the Mediterranean - a little island belonging to the Archipelago of Malta, which joined the EU in 2004.
Gozo is about 14 x 7 km in size, with a 52 km coastal line. Well known for its clear waters and fascinating underwater topography it has been voted as one of the best scuba diving destinations worldwide.
Gozo offers a lot above water too, with magnificent landscapes, breathtaking cliffs, quaint villages and laid-back residents.
Hot dry summers, mild winters with rain and strong winds determine the climate.
Water temperature rises up to 28 degrees in summer, and the coldest water temperatures you will experience in March with 13 to 14 degrees.
In autumn and spring you may experience some stronger winds or rain. Luckily the weather tends to change quickly, so that the sun and milder weather comes through again easily. Click here for 5-day-weather forecast.
Activities above water

More and more service providers offer organised hiking and adventure tours, culinary events, painting and other arts courses, as well as a big variety of well-being treatments like massages, AquaFlow, meditation, yoga, just to name a few.
Segway Tours, Hop-on-Hop-off- Buses and Quad Bike Tours are an adventurous way to discover the island on your dive-free days and with your non-diving family and friends.
