Retirement Living is Superb in the Enchanting Isle of Gozo

by Jos Attard
(Gozo, Malta)

As a senior citizen who has lived in Gozo, Malta all my life I should know. I am enjoying my retirement to the full now and pursuing my various hobbies. Life here on this small Island is so peaceful and quiet, especially in the Winter months.

We enjoy a European life-style and yet the Island of Gozo is still undeveloped and primitive in many respects. Many of the beaches and creeks dotted around the coastline are magical and still untouched by human hands.

People here go about their business at a leisurely pace with little hassle. This is mainly due to the small size of the Island where everything is close. You are never far away from anywhere more than 10 minutes by bus or by car. Many people who live in Victoria, the Capital city do not even need a car.

Gozo is beautiful both in Summer when we have tourists who come to enjoy the blue Mediterranean sea but most of all it is enchantingly magical in Winter. It is as green as Ireland, my friend was telling me the other day as we were walking in the countryside.

Our Winter is not cruel at all. We have no snow and bitter cold. Temperatures rarely fall below 16 deg.C in the daytime and this is one important factor that senior citizens look for when planning for their retirement living. (

Yesterday, 12th Jan, we had some rain but the 10 day weather forecast says that we will be enjoying sunny days up to the 21st least. Yes, we have more than 300 days of sunshine during the year.

In my perhaps biased opinion, Gozo, the Island of Calypso is the best place to retire. Calypso reminds me that our Islands are immensely rich in History, folklore and archaeological sites such as the Ggantija Temples, which are the oldest megalithic ruins in the world.
