Gozo: A wonderland of sea caves

Ever heard of Gozo? Me neither until recently. Most Americans have never heard it, let alone been there. At least that’s the conclusion I reach based on conversations with friends and Gozitans. Yes, that’s what they’re called. The first I heard of Gozo, a nine-mile long island that’s one of the Maltese Islands, was last October when I read an article in Outside Magazine.

Gozo Adventure: from rocks to sea

Cittadella is right in the centre of Gozo, and from there we saw the coastline on all four sides. After all, Gozo is tiny – Malta’s sister island is only about a quarter of the size of its larger neighbour, and all together with nearby Comino they form one of Europe’s 7 smallest countries.
