Does anyone know the best area to stay in Gozo for good snorkelling. My friend is staying in a villa or farmhouse rather than a hotel and wants to have access to good beaches with snorkelling.
A good hotel in Gozo is the Cornucopia in Xaghra. Or you may rent a farmhouse in several locations, the best being Gharb. You can find offers on the internet. www.Searchmalta.com or go to google and search gozo turist accommodation. Gozo is a beautiful small island. Enjoy your stay there as well as your diving.
You're never far away from anywhere in Gozo.
BEst location for snorkelling has to be the Dwejra area (the area of the inland sea, but do not snorkel in the inland sea - go in the Blue Hole area).
A close second best would be the resort town of Marsalforn. There are 5 dive shops in this resort from where you can buy/rent snorkelling equipment.
While you're at it, why not try a dive? :)
