Perfect holiday destination particularly if you love water sports in my opinion. Food is cheap and the people are very welcoming. I travelled alone because: My dive club went to Egypt and I chose Gozo. Adventure activities I liked: It was a scuba diving trip so I did three dives a day including night dives. I also swam every morning and evening, the sea water was warm and refreshing and above all very clear for snorkelling too....It was a scuba diving trip so I did three dives a day including night dives.
