Gozo Diving Holidays: An Overview
Clear seas and great visibility make Gozo one of the best places to dive in Europe year round, with reefs, caves, wrecks and the famous blue hole to explore. The Maltese archipelago enjoys hot dry summers making it perfect for all kinds of watersports, not to mention exploring the traditional villages and prehistoric sites dotted across the island.
Original Diving has long been a fan of this secret Mediterranean gem, and can arrange kayaking to the red sand beach at Ramla Bay, or snorkelling at the nearby island of Comino. Gozo is also known for having some of the best Mediterranean diving. Described as the Mecca of Mediterranean diving by a number of diving books and magazines, diving in Gozo is year-round. The beauty of Gozo is its underwater landscape of walls and huge drop offs, caverns, caves and tunnels and reefs teaming with fish. Clear and usually calm waters mean that visibility is typically in excess of 40 metres, and the wide variety of dive sites includes reefs, wartime wrecks and dramatic underwater scenery such as the submerged caves of the 'Blue Hole'.
On land, the interior of Gozo is well worth exploring on foot or on two wheels. As well as charming villages, the countryside is dotted with prehistoric sites - notably the Ggantija temples, which pre-date the Pyramids and Stonehenge.
