Calypso Cave Overview in Xaghra, Gozo
Calypso Cave is located in Xaghra and overlooks the red sands of Gozo's finest beach, Ramla l-Ħamra. This cave is suspected to be the cave referred to by Homer in "The Odyssey". Some are even certain that Gozo is the Island of Ogygia and the cave to be the one where the beautiful nymph Calypso kept Odysseus as a "prisoner of love" for seven years.
The cave itself is not that striking but it does create a feeling of anticipation due to its links with Greek legends. Apart from that, one can also enjoy a breath taking view of the picteresque Ramla l-Ħamra Bay. On the shore below Calypso Cave one can also see the ruins of a fortification built by the Knights of Malta in the mid-18th century to serve as defence against invading forces.
