“Like sparkling jewels, the Mediterranean islands of Gozo and Comino tantalise their visitors, unleashing the inner explorer in anyone that treads their shores.
With sunken treasures lying beneath their seas, vertiginous cliffs, inland villages and mysterious caves, every corner of these two islands holds secrets to discover, ponder, and admire.
The best way to explore Gozo and Comino is without a plan or a guide. Journey through the land like Christopher Columbus – drop anchor and begin your expedition. Don’t be hesitant – your instinct will guide you like constellations to sailors.
Plunge into turquoise waters and lose yourself in the endless green of the prickly pears, the sandy-coloured bricks in the villages scattered across the islands, the splendid churches – and the fascinating histories.
You will get to know the wind – which can transform the land and the sea, as well as your senses. Visit places more than once to see how much they can change from one moment to the next.
These breezes can caress your skin or hit you with such force you lose your balance. And if you do lose your balance, lie down, and watch the white spray of the powerful waves breaking and blending with the clouds.
Old lighthouses, which have guided sailors through the Mediterranean for many years, radiate wisdom from every rusty bolt. Bolts rusted by sea salt, which has long since been collected from magnificent salt pans on the water’s edge.
Do not fear the uneven roads; follow them wherever they take you. Even the narrowest, the steepest, the roughest track will reward you with breathtaking views of the blue sea, and sunsets that will touch your soul.
Climb towers and look out around you. Mother Nature might offer something at any moment: the sky that becomes an artist’s palette, colours blending and creating masterpieces of their own, the sea merging into the sky, the storm ready to break.
Gozo and Comino. Feel them, live them, explore them. The longer you’re alone on these islands, the more you will be able to breathe the true essence of these jewels of the Mediterranean“.
