Photographer's Note

Gozo is an island of the Maltese archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea, second in size to the island of Malta. In Maltese, the island is called Għawdex. Gozo is part of the country of Malta.

Gozo is at its best from October to May. It looks like the Garden of Eden with all the wild flowers, birds and other animals. The average temperature in this period is around 20C ideal for rambling around the island. While exploring the island you will realize that every 500m there is a totally different amazing view due to a large number of valleys, hills and small beaches. There are lots of abandoned hidden ancient temples and shrines in the countryside. If you are pressed for time and do not have much time to explore but you want to see the best hidden places it is best to hire or join a guide that specializes in country walks. Although Gozo is small once you go to the countryside you will feel that you are alone on the island since you can walk for hours without meeting anybody. During the winter storms Gozo seaside is totally spectacular with seeing the big waves explode 80m high in the sky on the big boulders and lofty cliffs. Recently the Ager Foundation was established and offers a number of eco and agro experiences for visitors to the island.
