From unspoilt coastlines and the Mediterranean’s most sought-after dive sites, to rich culture and nearby sandy beaches, San Lawrenz may be a rural hillside village on the west of the island but it certainly packs its share of Gozitan charm. Suited to those looking for a relaxing, scenic stay with an abundance of outdoor activities, a villa holiday in San Lawrenz offers the perfect base from which to explore the area’s impressive natural wonders.
Despite being one of the least populated places in the Maltese islands, San Lawrenz is home to a handful of restaurants, shops and bars dotted amongst charming 17th century houses. For a culture fix, visit Saint Lawrenz Parish Church where the annual Feast of St. Lawrence is held to celebrate Maltese culture. For dramatic landscapes, Dwejra Bay is a marine conservation area renowned for its unique geological features and fascinating underwater scenery. Swim or snorkel in the intriguing Inland Sea, a calm turquoise lagoon connected to the sea by a gothic-ceilinged cave tunnel which extends beneath the cliffs. San Lawrenz is also just a short ferry hop from Gozo’s sister island, Malta.
