CNN lists Gozo as one of ten places to see before they change forever

CNN travel have listed what they describe as the “10 places to see before they’re changed forever.” Gozo is in the list, with Mgarr ix-Xini as a spot in particular to visit.

 

“Whether it’s an obscure beauty spot that’s about to be exposed to the world via a hot new film or remote islands about to be made more accessible thanks to a new airport, these are the places on the brink of becoming major destinations,” CNN said.

 

On Gozo, the CNN article says, “there are few better advertisements for a destination than a good movie.”

 

Last year Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt spent several months on the Maltese island of Gozo, the setting for “By the Sea,” a film directed by Jolie.

 

It notes that the “visitor numbers have already started to increase thanks to the power couple’s presence, but it’s believed the film’s release in late 2015 will put the island firmly on the map.”

 

“Tiny Gozo is just a 20-minute ferry ride from Malta and has a population of 37,000 people.”

 

“About 97% of its residents are Roman Catholic and the landscape is dotted with beautiful churches, one of which has the world’s third highest unsupported dome. the article said.

 

“It’s a great destination for hikers, cyclists and divers but if you just want to catch some rays, there’s the beautiful Mgarr ix-Xini bay, one of the film’s key locations.”

 

The other destinations featured in the CNN Travel list include Nicaragua, St Helena, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Iceland, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, Antarctica, Cuba, and Solden in Austria.
