Before we were going to Malta we have checked many tourist guides to know what to see, do, etc. One of points on to do list was Calypso Cave - where Calypso should kept Odysseus as a `prisoner of love' for seven years. After long and distressful walk up the hill during which we have been almost attacked by a... More

I was mainly interested in this due to the legend of the Odyssey supposedly referencing this location - we stopped here as part of a hop on hop off bus. There was a very lovely view of Ramla Bay and a nice mobile food cart, but since the cave itself is unsafe, we did not see that. It was fun... More

Bit if a strange one. The only good thing is that it's free. You follow a walk board to a crack in the ground and that is about it. No information boards just litter but at least a good view down to Ramla bay

This was featured on a tour of Gozo - it was in several brochures . We arrived & was told it had been closed because rock falls. On further inspection the steps/entrance looked like they had been closed for a while. I asked our guide - closed for over two years!!! Malta Tourist Authorities need to sort this out. t

If you have some spare time and you don't know what to do, you can visit Calypso cave and enjoy a nice view over the Ramla beach, otherwise don't waste your time cos the cave itself is closed! But still if it happens that you are so adventurous and will visit that place, there is a passage near the abandoned... More

the cave is hard to see, but the view point is spectacular. Stunning. The view of Ramla Bay makes it worthwhile. There is a mobile food stall in the car park and their food is good at reasonable prices.

We drove up to Calypso Cave in the hope of learning a little of the history and going onto the viewing platform. In terms of the views, we were not disappointed - The view of Ramla Bay and the surrounding bay was spectacular, and made the trip there worth it! However, other than a little information on entry to the... More

Other than views of Ramla Bay, don't waste you time. The cave is closed as it is unsafe, so nothing but the view.
