There are few better advertisements for a destination than a good movie.
Last year Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt spent several months on the Maltese island of Gozo, the setting for “By the Sea,” a film directed by Jolie.
Visitor numbers have already started to increase thanks to the power couple’s presence, but it’s believed the film’s release in late 2015 will put the island firmly on the map.
Tiny Gozo is just a 20-minute ferry ride from Malta and has a population of 37,000 people.
About 97% of its residents are Roman Catholic and the landscape is dotted with beautiful churches, one of which has the world’s third highest unsupported dome.
It’s a great destination for hikers, cyclists and divers but if you just want to catch some rays, there’s the beautiful Mgarr ix-Xini bay, one of the film’s key locations.
Gozo is attracting many visitors during the year and is a must see for all our Pendergardens residents.
