Although you can’t into the cave anymore, the views from atop are beautiful! It is a great vantage point to see Ramla bay and surrounding countryside. It’s a short walk uphill from Ramla beach. Just follow the paths! The legend is that the cave is...More

10 years ago was worth a visit, sadly it has not been maintained and is no longer safe to enter. Great view of the countryside helps make up for the neglected cave.

The Calypso Cave is on top of a cliff overlooking an orange colored beach (Ralma Beach). The Cave itself cannot be visited and half of the sight-seeing balcony was barred for precautionery measures. The local Tourist Board should try and expand the experience provided to...More

Billed as the cave where Calypso seduced Odysseus and then kept him here for 7 years, but the cave has been shut for some years and you cannot even look from outside in. Instead, you get a congested site and an okay view across Ramla...More

The cave has been closed for a number of years due to fallen rocks. But one can enjoy great view of Ramla Bay.

A fantastic centre well run by true divers with a passion. Went for a 10 dive package with my family including a teenage son. All transfers were there on time and we didn't have to do anything except turn up. Dive sites are all planned...More

It is still worth a trip to enjoy the view over the bay but the one can not climb down in to the actual cave at present as it is not safe.

A hole in the ground would be a better description. Unless you have done everything else Gozo have to offer I would recommend to skip this one. It was an underwhelming experience. You can see a old stair down in the ground to something that...More

The cave has been closed for safety reasons. The view point is still worth stopping for, as the view over Ramla bay is superb. Other than that, there's a wee snack stall, tourist shop and toilets.

No. You could drive to the Blue Lagoon walk and swim from there. But to dive there you would usually take a boat trip.
