Posted by Richard Hammond at 10:05 on Tuesday 20 January 2015

As part of our celebration of great places to visit, we've published a Greentraveller's Guide to the beautiful island of Gozo (a short ferry ride from Malta), featuring eco-certified farmhouses and hotels, the best places to find sumptuous local food, the best beaches such as the picturesque Xlendi Bay, natural attractions such as the stunning Azure Window, and a range of outdoor activities - including where to find the best dives sites in the island's clear blue waters and the best places to go rock climbing. Throughout this week, we'll be celebrating the best of Gozo on Greentraveller's Facebook page and on Twitter #ecogozo

Alex Incorvaja, Director UK & Ireland, Malta Tourism AuthorityAlex Incorvaja, Director UK & Ireland, Malta Tourism AuthorityThe guide was written and researched by the award-winning travel writer Yvonne Gordon in collaboration with the Malta Tourism Authority. 

Alex Incorvaja, Director UK & Ireland, Malta Tourism Authority, says: “We are delighted to work with Greentraveller's team to produce this Greentraveller's Guide to Gozo, which celebrates the best of sustainable tourism on our island. This wonderful island boasts a range of world-class diving sites, with an exciting mix of historical wrecks, caves and beautiful coral reefs. Explore the varied marine life that the Gozitan waters have to offer through diving, snorkelling and swimming.

“Our ecoGozo vision is not merely thinking green, but a vision to achieve a stable and healthy environment for a better quality of life.”

Yvonne Gordon wrote and researched Greentraveller's Guide to GozoYvonne Gordon wrote and researched Greentraveller's Guide to GozoYvonne Gordon, who wrote and researched the guide following a return visit to the island this summer, says: "With dramatic cliffs and bays, and surrounded by crystal clear waters, Gozo is one of the best diving and climbing locations in the world, and the island also has a rich cultural heritage.

"Thousands of years of history have left their mark, with the UNESCO World Heritage Site at the Ggantija temples and the fortified citadel with its tiny streets in Victoria. Nature has left is mark too, with Dwejra with the stunning Azure Window, or the cliffs at Ta’ Cenc.

"GreenTraveller’s Guide To Gozo will help you make the most of your time on the island, from local traditions such as Gbejniet cheese-making, to walks, dive-sites and beaches, bakeries, rural farmhouses, and delicious fresh fish served harbourside in the evening. Enjoy!"
