On one of the smallest islands of Mediterranean, you’ll find uncrowded line-ups and perfect waves under sunny blue skies.
Welcome to the Mediterranean swells of Gozo and Malta.
If you ask a local citizen for the nearest surf spots, he might tell you that surfers are only spotted once in a while, despite the multiple reef and beach breaks that can be found throughout the country.
The best surf spots in Gozo are:
Ramla beach (W/NW/N/NE/E/SE sandy and rock bottom),
San Blas beach (NW/N/NE/E/SE sandy and rock bottom),
Qbajjar Bay (N/NE/E/SE rock bottom),
Xatt l ahmar (S/SW/W rock and seaweed bottom).
In Gozo, tides are not relevant – you’re in the Mediterranean Sea. Swell patterns can’t be precisely determined because there are many different winds and coastal lines in the surrounding areas (Italy, Tunisia, Libya, Greece). In the summer, you may not find a decent wave for over few weeks in the entire territory. Nevertheless, the best swells come from Northwest, North, Northeast, East and Southeast and they can’t be considered rare (especially in the Winter). The average sea temperatures range from 15°C to 26°C (59°F-78°F), so you’ll only need a 4/3 or 3/2 wet-suit for the colder months (October-June).
In Gozo and Malta, distances are never a problem. You’ll need to drive less than 40 kilometers (25 miles) to reach the most distant point in the country.
