By Olly Gaspar, full-time traveler for 6 years. I visit every place I write about & share real tips, photos, & advice from my trips.

Wondering where to stay on Gozo? From boutique suites with ocean views to private pool villas overlooking farmland. Read on for the best boutique hotels on Gozo Island, Malta!

Gozo is the second-largest island in the Maltese archipelago, with 32,000 people. Known for its picturesque landscapes and epic things to do this tiny island packs a punch!

Due to its small size and well-connected network of buses and roads, choosing the ideal location to stay in Gozo is less crucial than on the main island of Malta. While there are plenty of luxurious 5-star resorts in Malta, a stay in Gozo is all about its quaint and traditional boutique hotels.

These small, homey lodgings offer a more authentic travel experience and most definitely don’t skimp out on luxury. In this accommodation guide, I’ve listed the 10 best places to stay on Gozo to help you plan your travels.

My top picks are Quaint Boutique Hotel with epic views over the Nadur Parish Church and Viewpoint Boutique Living for its peaceful location and ocean views.
