Before there was Newgrange, Stonehenge, and even the pyramids, there were the Ggantija Temples. At over 5600 years old, the two adjoining temples are remarkably well preserved, and are an excellent example of Malta’s amazing collection of megalithic monuments.
Located at the end of the Xaghra plateau, the Ggantija Temples are the most popular tourist attractions in Malta (superseding the Azure Window upon its collapse), receiving thousands of visitors every year. The local council has provided raised platforms throughout the site providing a walkway for guests, as well as a small museum and information centre.
The beaches in Gozo are an excellent alternative to the bustling sands on the main island of Malta, being generally quieter and more secluded. Whether you’re looking forward to a romantic stroll, a private family day out, or even a spot to snooze in the sun, the beaches in Gozo will not disappoint!
A surprising amount of the island’s top attractions are actually located around the coastline. Dwejra Bay, for example, holds a number of must-see attractions, as detailed below.
Prior to its collapse in 2017, the Azure Window was the most popular tourist attraction in Malta. The 28 metre natural archway had been featured in a number of films, including Clash of the Titans (1981) and The Count of Monte Carlo (2002), as well as the first season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. The remnants of the archway can still be seen today when diving through the Blue Hole at Dwejra Bay.
For many divers, the Inland Sea in Gozo is up there with some of the top diving spots in the world. In fact, the famous explorer Jacques Cousteau described the Inland Sea as one of his top ten favourite dives of all time! The sea itself is actually a 60 metre wide lagoon in Dwejra Bay, connected to the Mediterranean through an 80 metre long tunnel. Boats often pull up onto the lagoon’s stony beach, which itself is framed by a row of fishermen’s huts.
Also known as ‘Mushroom Rock’ or ‘The General’s Rock’, the 60 metre high islet at the entrance of San Lawrenz’ black lagoon has had a fascinating history! It is said that the medieval Knights Hospitaller believed that the ‘Malta Fungus’ they discovered growing on top of the rock held rare, medicinal properties. The islet was thereafter closed to the public, and the fungus was often presented as a gift! Today, Fungus Rock is a beautiful Nature Reserve, and the water around it is considered perfect for snorkelling.
