Winding down in Gozo
Top tips to relax during your accommodation at Hotel Calypso
In today’s stressful lifestyle, taking time to wind down has become an absolute necessity. For those who wish to switch off and regenerate, Gozo is the place to be.
Gozo has always had a different character than its sister island. The little island has a lower population density and the slower process of urbanisation have contributed to the unique aura which allows the visitor to slow down.
Wherever you look, the sea is never more than a stone’s throw away and it’s Gozo’s remarkable coastline that stimulates the imagination so strongly: tiny creeks, beaches of red sand, turquoise bays, stretches of limestone criss-crossed with tiny saltpans and majestic high cliffs falling in a sheer drop into the clear waters.
Indeed Hotel Calypso itself is situated right on the water’s edge. Perfectly positioned on the north shore of the Island in the fishing harbour of Marsalforn, Calypso blends effortlessly within this picturesque seaside resort. It makes your perfect hotel accommodation in Gozo.
For those who are seeking adventure and exploration, Gozo offers rugged landscape and a spectacular coastline. The Island’s terrain is ideal for walking and trekking, cycling and rock climbing. The coastline and surrounding waters offer opportunities for sailing, windsurfing, snorkelling, kayaking, fishing and diving.
There is some exceptional scuba diving in Gozo as a result of the calm waters, high visibility and diversity of underwater caves, wrecks and reefs. An incredible diving experience, the spectacular Blue Hole, beneath the Azure Window is a must for the diving lovers.
There are various ancient sites available to see in Gozo, but the most fascinating is Ggantija – the oldest freestanding temples in the world. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Ggantija Temples are worth going to visit at least once.
Gozo also offers various unspoilt bays, alcoves and sandy beaches that make for wonderful sunbathing or water sports.
Hotel Calypso offers various opportunities for its residents to unwind. Perhaps the obvious is the message service which was recently introduced. However Hotel Calypso offers other activities to its esteemed clients. Calypso Diving center is situated adjacent to the hotel and those who want to explore the marine world.
If you are looking to take some time off your stressful work look no further than spending your holiday on Gozo – the island of joy.
