Natural sites in Malta and Gozo: the beautiful scenery of the Mediterranean
Best things come in small packages
Both Malta and Gozo, can offer beaches, historical and cultural locations and a number of natural sites. Considering the diversity of the landscapes and the actual size of these two small islands in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, we can realise how compact and convenient visiting Malta is!
All along the Maltese coast the scenario is ever-changing: the sandy shores of Dwejra in Gozo give pace to sheer cliffs, constellated of caves that behold stalactite and stalagmite wonders. And even underground, it is amazing the variety of colours shapes and details changes from the coral reflexions inside Blue Grotto, to the millenary colonnade in Ninu’s cave!
These sites offers the perfect scenario for romantic walks or just to sit down and watch the sun goes down on the horizon, which is particularly fascinating on the edge of magnificent Dingli Cliffs, with no artificial light to disturb the views on Filfla and on the open sea.
Natural and historical spots
If you are a interested in history and mythology you can combine your passion with the natural beauty of the Calypso's Cave in Gozo, supposedly the love prison of Ulysses in the Odyssey, and or visit what used to be a second World War shelter before discovering the amazing calcifications inside Xerri Grotto!
