Want to know where to catch the sunset on Gozo Island? Here’s your all-year-round guide so you don’t miss a thing.
We are blessed with higher temperatures on this sunny island. That means short winters and long hot summers and with over 3,000 hours worth of sunshine over the course of a year, we islanders are pretty solar powered. One of the best things to do in Gozo is to watch a jaw-dropping Gozitan sunset. Here we drill down on the best places to see it, so all you have to do, is sit back and watch nature’s glorious show.
The sun rises over in Qala and sets in Gharb so the following places are a good bet to watch the sunset in Gozo throughout the year; Ta’ Ċenċ Cliffs, Sannat Sunset Viewpoint, Sanap Cliffs Sunset and Falesie di Gozo.
January – May
Through the winter months, it can feel like a hot spring day in the UK. You can bask in the Mediterranean sun until it starts to set around 4.30-5.30 pm. The best place to watch the sunset in Gozo at this time of the year is over on the southern coast of the island.
Through April and May, the holiday season is starting to pick up speed. Easter weekend is lively and buzzing and the temperatures have risen to consistent double figures. Summer is nearly here! Why not try heading to the top of the Citadel or over on the high hilltops in Xagħra or Nadur to watch the sun set. You’ll need to grab your spot for around 7-8pm.
june – September
June is the beginning of the summer in Gozo and everyone is totally ready for the influx of visitors to the island. The sun sets as late as 8 – 9 pm around this time of year, but we suggest to get to your chosen spot as early as 7.30 to get the full summer show!
Also head to the Salt Pans in Marsalforn for some spectacular sunset action in August and September. You can bathe in the ocean whilst the sky turns from blue to pink.
october – December
As the summer months draw to a close, temperatures in Gozo are still well above the 20 degree mark. This is a time when the locals reappear, life starts to move a little freely as it’s less sticky. More to the point, this is the perfect time of year to sit and watch a Gozitan sunset. The whole of the south coast is a sure-fire bet as is the high points of the island.
Not the same we know, but if you can’t be here in person, this is the next best thing. Check out the VisitGozo panoramic webcam for all year round digital sunset feels!
