Gozo is the second largest island of the group of islands that form the Republic of Malta. This island of approximately 31,000 inhabitants has a largely rural ambience. Besides a beautiful coastline and sandy beaches, the rest of the terrain is made up of craggy hilltops and lush valleys.
Gozo has a warm climate with sunny days and pleasant temperatures throughout the year. The day temperatures in winter average at 16°C. July to September is the hottest period with the temperature hovering around 30°C during the days.
Gozo is connected to Malta, the main island of the republic, only by ferries which ply regularly. A bridge connecting the two islands was not completed owing to protests from the Gozo inhabitants. The citizens of Gozo are fiercely protective of an identity unique from the rest of the country.
