Overlooking Ramla Bay, limits of Xagħra, Gozo

Calypso's Cave

This cave is situated in a cliff face, a short distance from Xaghra and overlooks the red sands of Ramla Bay.

This cave is assumed to be the cave referred to by Homer in `The Odyssey’ where Calypso, the beautiful nymph kept Odysseus as a `prisoner of love’ for seven years.

The cave’s interior and exterior are not too impressive but the magnificent views are worth it.

On the 14th June 2019, Calypso Cave will be closed to the general public.
