Photographer's Note

Whoever comes to Malta has a difficult decision to make: Should I go to the neighboring island of Gozo or not? There are so many things to see on Malta Island that going anywhere else seems like a waste. And yet my personal answer is: Yes, it is worth to go there. Gozo and Comino are two islands which are part of Malta.
There are various ways to visit Gozo. You can take an organized tour by boat/jeep (the most convenient option). You can take a bus to ferry terminal and after crossing take a taxi around Gozo (the cheapest option) or you can rent a car and drive around Gozo independently. We have picked the last option which we always prefer as it gives a lot of flexibility. Normally I would use the freedom to stay in some spots waiting for best light but with the small baby we used the freedom to stay in one place as long as the baby allowed.
Similarly to Malta Island, Gozo offers something for everyone’s taste. Azure Window (in this photo) is one of the most recognizable features of Gozo coast. But the whole rocky area of Dwejra is spectacular. I would love to spend there a whole day but I had a limited time around the noon when the light is especially harsh.
To sense the scale of the place you may try to spot some tiny people walking on top of the Azure window.
