What's the weather like in Gozo in August?

Temperature

August is the hottest month of the year in Gozo, and it can get very warm throughout the island. Daily temperatures average at 27°C. But with a high chance of heat waves at any time it is possible for the weather to feel a lot hotter. Highest temperatures in August average at 31°C with lows of 22°C. But temperatures of over 40°C are often experienced throughout the month, so suitable sun protection and lots of water are always necessary.

Locals and tourists alike enjoy minimum temperatures averaging at approximately 22°C at night in Gozo, providing the perfect climate for the bounty of nightlife and after dark activity which is prevalent on the island during the summer months.

Rain

Though not as dry as July, there is still only a 5% chance of rain in August and only 7mm of rain are likely to fall throughout the entire month. This lack of precipitation ensures the air is not as humid in August as it is during the winter months. However when combined with the high night time temperatures and the lack of rain, air conditioning is a must for anyone visiting the island in August.

Sea Temperature

But it is not only the air temperature that is at its warmest in August. The sea is also warmer in Gozo in August than at any other time of the year, offering the perfect opportunity for swimmers and divers alike. An average of 13 hours of sunshine every day provide the heat to warm up the Mediterranean water, bringing sea temperatures up to a very pleasant 27°C by mid-August.

Clouds

Only a 1% chance of a cloudy day in the region during this month also ensures visibility is very strong. And, from some points on the island, it is even possible to see the tip of Mount Etna some 200km away when visibility is at its very best.

Hotels in Gozo in August

San Antonia Guest House

The San Antonia Guest House offers the perfect location for anyone that wants to hit the beaches of Gozo in August.  Situated very close to the ever popular Xlendi Beach, this guest house is highly sought after, especially in peak season. Every one of the 13 rooms is fully air conditioned and has its own terrace with a view over the adult swimming pool, children's splash pool, the sea or the surrounding countryside. With breakfast included for all guests in the magnificent breakfast room, a stay at the San Antonia can make all the difference.

Razzett Ghasri Farmhouse

The Razzett Ghasri Farmhouse is situated in the beautiful village of Ghasri which, even in the peak season of August, remains quieter than most areas on Gozo.  If the breath-taking view over the narrow fjord of Ghasri isn't enough to entice you to this extraordinary setting, then the private pool, air conditioning and choice of a one or two bedroom house should do the trick. Located close to all local amenities in an area of extraordinary natural beauty, you will always enjoy your stay.

St Patrick's Hotel

For a cheaper alternative to the traditional hotel in Gozo, St Patrick's Hotel will offer all you need for a comfortable trip. The roof top sun terrace offers a beautiful view of the area, while a splash pool and Jacuzzi will always keep you cool. The hotel is within walking distance of the beach, a range of bars and cafes as well as the local bus stop. This hotel provides a convenient and clean option, especially when on a budget.

Beaches in Gozo in August

Make the most of the sea temperature and explore some of the beaches that Gozo has to offer.

Sans Blas Beach

Thanks to the steep hill required to climb down to get to Sans Blas Beach near Nadur, it is never very busy. But the red sandy beach and beautiful clear water make it one of the best beaches in on the island. There are none of the usual cafes or bars that traditionally surround popular beaches on Gozo. Instead there is a single hut selling a variety of drinks and snacks during the day. It then transforms into a delicious BBQ for the evenings.

Surrounding vegetation and rock formations create the ideal environment for snorkelling or swimming. And if you don't fancy the walk back up the hill, a local jeep will give you a lift for a small fee of course.

Xlendi Bay

For something a little less traditional, head over to the main beach in Xlendi called Xlendi Bay. Set into the cliff side, access to the concrete sunbathing areas is via installed ladders. Or you can go to the main, small beach, which is a combination of sand and stone. With this rugged terrain also comes incredible views, interesting snorkelling and a diving board to cool off when that August heat hits. And when you've had enough of the beach, the wide variety of cafes, shops and restaurants surrounding the area provide something for everyone and a great day out.

Bars and Restaurants

Maxokk

When you don't want the lure of good food to take you away from a day of summer fun, simply pop into Maxokk for the best take away Gozitan pizza you will find on the island.  Call ahead and order your food or take your time and choose when you get there. With a range of potato topped 'ftira' to choose from, as well as more traditional type pizzas, you will want to go back again and again.

Sofia Bar and Restaurant

Discover a touch of Bulgarian paradise in Gozo and visit Sofia Bar & Restaurant in Gozo. Run by restaurant owner and Bulgarian, Alex, the food is of the highest quality, with very generous portions whilst still offering outstanding value for money.  Choose from the Moussaka, Stuffed Peppers, Spicy Meatballs and other Bulgarian delicacies. The atmosphere is welcoming, and on a hot August day, there is nothing more enticing. Once you've been, you will definitely want to go back.

Things to Do in Gozo in August

The Feast of the Assumption

The Feast of the Assumption is a national holiday in Gozo in August and is celebrated across the island. Bands play live music through the streets. And monuments of Saint Mary are paraded in her honour. In the peak celebration days of the 9th to the 15th August the skies are ablaze with colours and fireworks. The celebrations usually focus around the town of Mqabba in the south, which culminates with a very special firework display on the 14th August followed by a display of mechanical fireworks and a final mass the next day.

Ta' Mena Estate

If you take a fancy to Gozitan cuisine, a visit to the Ta' Mena Estate is just what the doctor ordered. This 100 acre farm offers tours and tasting events on an almost daily basis to provide the perfect opportunity to refresh yourself from the hot August sun. Fresh produce, Olive Oils and, of course, the local wines, are also on sale, offered by a friendly and knowledgeable team who are keen to share their passion with you. At Ta' Mena you will feel so at home, you will want to stay.

Xwekija

Visit the small town of Xwekija and you will not be able to help noticing the remarkable church. Xwekija Church, dedicated to St. John the Baptist, was designed by local architect Joseph D'Amato and is one of the most captivating buildings on the island. Its dome stands 246ft tall and is the third highest unsupported dome in the world. With a lavish interior and polished Carrara marble floor, a visit to Gozo would never be complete without seeing this magnificent sight.
