Calypso Cave

Posted by Aruni Madara

Xaghra, Gozo

Calypso Cave is located in a cliff just off Xaghra; overlooking Gozo’s most sought-after sandy beach, Ramla Bay. It is presumed that the cave is a complex labyrinth, extending down to sea level at some points, however, stone boulders block the way a few metres inwards. The cave's interior and exterior are not too impressive but the magnificent views over Ramla Bay and the valley make the visit all worth it. On the shore below Calypso Cave one can also observe the remains of the Marsalforn tower, a fortification built by the Knights of Malta in the early-eighteenth century to protect against sea-ward attacks.

Hello,
I just wanted to let you know that these pictures are not from famous Calypso's cave in Ramla Bay, Gozo. They are actually of yet another another cave also overlooking Ramla Bay, named l-Ghar tal-Mixta, or just "Mixta cave". Calypso's cave is the one across the the other side of this beach. But Mixta is absolutely gorgeous nonetheless.
