If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen some of my photos of my recent holiday in beautiful Gozo and Malta. I can honestly say that it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited and would definitely go again. My lovely fiancé had booked this trip to the hot-all-year-round islands to celebrate my birthday and our 2 year anniversary, where we stayed in Gozo for 3 nights and 2 nights in Malta. In Gozo we stayed in a new boutique hotel that opened this June 2016 called Murella Living. I loved how every room is different and each one had its own style. The location was perfect for us as it as only a minute walk to the seafront in Marsalforn – the largest of Gozo’s seaside towns. We had continental breakfast at the hotel which was slightly limited, but the service was excellent and we got to eat out in the sunshine in the small courtyard area. There are so many cafes and restaurants by the seafront we decided to try a different restaurant each night sampled their finest foods. As a big seafood fan, I was looking forward to trying out their fish of the day. We did a day of sight-seeing on the Hop On Hop Off bus which took us all over the island and my favourite was seeing the Azure Window and it’s amazing view of the Mediterranean Sea. We also stopped off in the Capital, Victoria and walked around the Cittadella which also gave you amazing views of Gozo once you reached the top. On our last day in Gozo we took a boat to Comino island to see the Blue Lagoon, I wish we were able to spend a bit more time there as the part we were in was just too busy and overcrowded. It all seemed a little cramped with all the deck chairs and food vans/stalls, I just could not relax at all. I’d recommend anyone going to Comino to try and get there in the early mornings! I enjoyed my pineapple drink though. The following day we left Gozo for St. Julian’s in Malta and stayed at The Radisson Blu which was stunning and the service was excellent. We sunbathed by the pool on one of the day’s and there was a bar within the pool to order your drinks. We went to all three of the restaurants there and they were all excellent with lots of variety of food. My favourite was this mozzarella salad with peach slices. As we were in Malta for two days we couldn’t explore every little corner and only managed to visit the capital, Valletta for the day. We expected it to be busy as it has plenty of shops for all the shopaholics out there, as well as restaurants and ice cream parlours! Out of the two islands, Gozo is my favourite as I found it more relaxing and the people are so welcoming and helpful. On one occasion my fiancé had almost lost his flip-flop out in the sea where it was drifting away, and in a split second a local passer-by appeared next to me, stripped down to his underwear and dived straight into the waters to rescue it! Anyway I’ll stop rambling on and let you have a look at some of the pictures I took below 🙂
I hope you enjoyed some of my holiday photos and if you like, let me know which is your favourite pic from this blog post!
