All of the holidays we create are completely tailor-made to you

This sample itinerary is intended to give you a flavour of what we can do
Day 1: International Flight

While there are multiple three-and-a-half hour flights departing the UK for Malta every day, avoid the antisocial wake-up call with a late morning flight, landing in Malta in the afternoon.

Once you have passed through customs you will be met by your driver and privately transferred to ThirtySeven Gozo. The journey will take around one hour and forty minutes, depending on local traffic conditions. Once you have arrived at the hotel, spend the rest of the day exploring your local surroundings. One of the best ways to explore the whole island is by car so we have arranged a rental car for you to use for the duration of your stay.

Set out by foot from ThirtySeven Gozo and follow the road right past the beautiful butterscotch Munxar parish church for 25 minutes and you will reach the dramatic Sanap Cliffs, which offer magnificent views towards Xlendi Bay, especially at sunset.

Day 2: Diving in Xlendi

Today you will take a giant stride into the blue and explore the dive sites of Xlendi.

After a delicious breakfast spread hop in your rental car for Xlendi Bay, a short five minute drive away. Gozo is renowned for having some of the best diving in Europe, boasting crystal clear warm water, interesting topographies, caves, wrecks and more. With most of the dive sites accessible from shore, gear up and giant stride straight into the watery world - Xlendi Cave is well worth an explore to see the cave shimmer with beautiful light effects.

Spend your surface interval warming up with hot chocolate and blankets brought straight to you by ThirtySeven Gozo before exploring the other sites. Head back to the hotel in time for sundowners by the pool before wandering into the local town for dinner - check out our detailed dossier for some of our favourite haunts.

Day 3: Dive The Classics

This morning tick off Gozo's most famous dive sites: The Blue Hole and Inland Sea.

Located a short 20 minute drive away on the West side of the island, both dive sites are accessible from the shore. Starting at six metres with a max depth of 25 metres, Inland Sea extends 80 metres through a natural tunnel, lit up by the light at the end as you hit the open blue. Once you hit the open blue, it's time to explore the Blue Hole (after a surface interval picnicking on the shore). Gozo's most famous dive site, the Blue Hole features some spectacular topography, with an archway, cavern and huge rocks and boulders to explore.

If you have the energy after an active days diving visit the Tal-Massar winery in the late afternoon and sample Gozo's finest wine over a delicious supper overlooking the historic vineyard.

Additional Activities

  • If you're a wreck-head don't miss MV Karwela which extends 48 metres and reaches a depth of 40 metres and even features a Volkswagen Beetle shell on the sun-deck
Day 4: Exploration

Rise and shine for a final exploration of the island.

For a dose of culture head to the ancient Ggantija temple, believed to be the oldest man-made structure in the world. The Citadel, an ancient fortified city, is also well worth a visit to learn about the small islands rich history.

Sadly, in the late afternoon it's time to leave Gozo and go home. Head back to the hotel where your driver will privately transfer you to the airport in plenty of time for your flight home, arriving back in London in the evening.
