Xaghra is in Gozo.


Pronounced Shara, this village is centrally located on the island and a good spot to use as a base. Firstly because it's an attractive village in itself, it houses the Gigantija temple, and is 5 minute drive or a 30 minute walk to both Ramla i Hamra and Rabat, so if you don't have too much time to explore the island this is a good place.

Get in

Get around


  • The Gigantija Temple, the oldest standing structure in the world.
  • The attractive village square.




  • Oleander on the pittoresque village square (Pjazza Victoria) is a very good little restaurant which among other things serves typical local dishes.



  • Cornucopia Hotel, Triq Gnien Imrik, tel.+356 21556486, has good deals for its four stars in the low season, only a few lira more than the slightly tacky english b&b also in town. Be sure to ask for a room at the front of the hotel where you'll get a gorgoeus view of the sea with Marsalforn and the Rio style Jesus statue overlooking them on your right and the Citadel of Gozo on your left.
