Gozo family activity vacation in Malta

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

The island of Gozo is just 9 by 4 miles in size meaning that all the activities for this vacation are close together keeping motorized journey times to a minimum, any transfers are group transfers.

On such a small island tourism plays an important social and economic role. With limited work opportunities, many young Gozitans are forced to leave the island they love and move to Malta in search of work opportunities. The development of tourism is helping to stem this flow.

The hotel we use has been deliberately chosen as it is Gozitan owned and has an entirely Gozitan staff. The hotel also actively promotes Gozitan heritage as the central part of the hotel is a 350+ year old farmhouse which has been sensitively converted to keep its character whilst the restaurant menu actively promotes locally sourced foods and traditional dishes. This ensures that the economic benefits remain on the island and are spread beyond the hotel’s walls. The hotel is situated on the edge of Xaghra village, within walking distance to the main square where you can support a variety of locally owned restaurants and small shops. It is also the perfect place to interact with the friendly locals as it is very much a traditional village and not a tourist resort.

Our activity providers are truly passionate about their island. They wish to ensure, as do we, that the future of this pristine environment and the local heritage is preserved for generations. This is imparted to our guests throughout the week as clients are given a greater understanding of the heritage and culture, and what must be done to preserve it, in an active way. There is a strict leave no trace policy on all activities and clients will also visit some agri tourism projects throughout their stay.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


All of it was fantastic. Could not have been better. The vacation provides a great combination of activities and is so well organised. It is relaxing given that everything is organised so smoothly, but active as the family are out doing things each day - perfect. Our children loved it all, especially the lazy boat day.

Great family vacation. All activities are suitable for beginners but easily enjoyable for more experienced members of the group. The guides will tailor things to your ability. We had a great but small group and it worked really well.

The vacation benefited local businesses and the eco-day is a great way to see more of the local culture and to understand how things work on Gozo.

Excellent - would highly recommend the vacation. The operator really knew the vacation so helped with our questions beforehand. The local hosts are English and French and know Gozo inside out and are extremely well organised and helpful.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


So many highlights! Our youngest loved the rock climbing, which was expertly supervised and our eldest loved the snorkelling and lazy boat day best. As for us, it's hard to choose, the Eco Day was much more than we anticipated and we really felt privileged to share their Gozo culture. We love sea kayaking and the shores of Gozo provided some excellent fun. The superb staff at the dive center gave us an excellent introduction to diving and an unforgettable day. It's the fantastic people we shared our vacation with from the representative, Cornil, to the staff and our fellow vacation makers who have made it unforgettable.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Get your beach shoes, swimming costume and sun screen and GO!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Very much so, we really feel our tourist dollar went directly to the local communities.
