Autumn is a fabulous time to visit Gozo. The sizzling summer temperatures give way to warm days and cooler nights. So exploring Gozo’s amazing coastline and rich cultural heritage is easier.

The Mediterranean Sea is at its warmest in the autumn so you can still enjoy swimming and all the other water sports that Gozo offers. For some inspiration see our blog post Get away from it all on an autumn break in Gozo.

And there are still lots of entertainment and cultural events happening around the island to keep you busy. Most of these events are focused on music, food and wine – which tells you all you need to know about Gozo’s priorities!

Autumn is harvest time for Gozo’s olive and wine producers and if you’re visiting Gozo at this time you can join in the harvest. Our blog post Enjoy a hands on harvest experience tells you how. And after a couple of years’ absence due to the pandemic, the Delicata Wine Festival in Nadur is back in September.

September sees the last of Gozo’s village festas as well as the tail end of the outdoor live music and entertainment programmes around the island.

And in October Gozo’s internationally renowned Festival Mediterranea returns after a two-year haitus, featuring Bizet’s famous opera Carmen at Teatru Astra in Victoria.

This blog post aims to gives you a taste of things to do and see on Gozo this autumn. Can we tempt you to consider an autumn break on Gozo?
