our hop on hop off bus took us to view Calypso Cave from above for 15 minutes as the roads had blocked off the area so we could not go to actually see it close up. From the view point they took us, it was really lovely and we got some great pictures too.

Title says it all. You can look over a railing to see some rocks in a hole. That's it really. View is pleasant as are many others from elevated positions on the island.

No value to travel to specifically If you don't know the myth or care about it specifically then it's pretty much a view only. It's also a cave via a slender opening which is now closed for access as it was clearly dangerous getting up and down in the past About only add is clean toilets which was good

Was looking forward to the caves but unfortunately you can go in them and you basically look down a hole into a few concrete steps which is all fenced off! Such a shame you can longer get into the caves, view was ok but seen better on the island and in Malta, please make it safe to go back into... More

Situated in Xaghra just above Ramla Hamra, this place has a stunning view. Although the cave itself is not open for anyone as it is dangerous the view and surroundings are worth a visit.

My wife and I both read the story as children, therefore the trip there was a little more than "exploring a cool cave." We were both disappointed that it was closed - really, I could've vaulted the fence and went in if I had wanted to, but I figure it's closed for a reason, and I'd hate to be the... More

very disappointing not worth the trip. The cave is closed and although the view was impressive, you can find that practically anywhere in Gozo

Visited this place on a lovely sunny day and the panoramic views from the viewpoint were beautiful. The cave itself was just a slit in the ground and very dark so a bit disappointing as caves go. However the myth is interesting but one would hope that the cave was bigger further in if Odysseus had to live in it... More
