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.
