The Little Island in the Mediterranean wins big!

We have some great news for you if you and your family have the same passion for protecting the planet and sustainability as we do here at Activities Abroad. What news is that you may ask? Well, one of our favourite destinations for a family holiday, the island of Gozo has been named the best sustainable destination in the Mediterranean!

On the 7th March this year at ITB Berlin, the world’s largest Travel Trade Show, jurors representing 12 international organisations voted for a variety of parts of the world seen as being the most sustainable and Gozo came out on top in the Mediterranean, winning this new and prestigious award!

Of course, being the most sustainable destination isn’t the only thing that Gozo has going for it! Here are three more reasons to make Gozo your next family holiday destination:

1.  It's home to some incredible water sports

From sea kayaking to Mini B diving and snorkelling, Gozo is home to some great aquatic activities. In fact, Gozo is home to some of the best scuba diving sites in Europe and our holidays to the island let you take to the water and explore these incredible waters for yourself!

2.  The island is packed full of culture

Gozo may only be 67km² big but it still manages to pack a cultural punch. From its UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Ġgantija Temples in Xaghra to its delightful shops selling locally made crafts and food there is plenty to keep you busy on this little island.

3.  It’s a beautiful place to unwind
