Monument / Landmark
“Ramla Bay is one of the best-known beaches of Gozo and therefore it is a must if you travel to this island. It is easily accessible, since a public bus will leave you five minutes away from it. Ramla Bay is well known for its red sand and because of that, many call it the red beach. Tip: Also, we recommend that from Ramla Bay you go to the Calipso Cave, the views will leave you speechless.”

“Highly recommended for your first time visit, not the best food, but they have natural pools and a bit of sand right next to the restaurant which is located literally at the beach, and a minutes walk away you have diving instructors and bars. I’m putting this place up for the location as there a lot of nice places in this very area.”

“The Three Cities is a collective description of the three fortified cities of Birgu, Senglea and Cospicua in Malta. The oldest of the Three Cities is Birgu, which has existed since the Middle Ages. The other two cities, Senglea and Cospicua, were both founded by the Order of Saint John in the 16th and 17th centuries. The Three Cities are enclosed by the Cottonera Lines, along with several other fortifications. The term Cottonera is synonymous with the Three Cities, although it is sometimes taken to also include the nearby town of Kalkara.”
