Gozo is the second-largest island in the Maltese archipelago after its big sister, Malta. Compared to its south-eastern neighbour, Gozo is less developed and more rural, and is known for its scenic hills, which are featured on its coat of arms, and the Ggantija temples, the oldest of the Megalithic Temples of Malta. Its capital city, Victoria, named after Queen Victoria, is a fascinating walled city in the centre of the island with a majestic citadel.
Gozo has several beaches and seaside resorts which are popular with visitors and locals alike. Ramla Bay, with its sweeping arc of rich-coloured sands fringing azure waters, is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. These islands are fantastic for snorkelling and diving - head to the Blue Lagoon on the island of Comino to experience one of the top spots.
