Gozo, a Digital Nomad Destination
There are many advantages in living a digital nomad’s lifestyle. Freedom of movement is a underestimated freedom we have and most of us give it up so easily. One of my favourite places to spend time in the Mediterranean climate is Gozo. Why Gozo ?
Gozo is cheaper than Malta, its cleaner than Malta and its less congested which allows you to do your thing and enjoy the beauty this island has to offer. We have a beautiful sea with a choice of sandy or rocky beaches, deep or shallow waters and crystal clear water.
WHERE IS GOZO?
Gozo is the little sister island of Malta situated in the beautiful mediterranean sea. Part of the EU and the Schengen Area its is a little quiet paradise with beatull landscapes, beaches and History.
The Maltese archipelago, consists of three islands:
Why is Gozo ideal for Digital Nomads ?
- Affordable Housing rents
- Safe Environment
- Great weather (300+ days of sun)
- Great web technology work opportunities in Malta
- Nice people
- English speaking (mostly)
All European citizens can enter freely, while others visiting from other continents would need to obtain a tourist visa (Usually 3 months).
It’s also worth noting that there are lots of work opportunities related to IT here in Malta, mainly due to the large influx of gaming companies during the past few years. These companies look very favourably on employment of foreigners, so you can supplement your digital nomad business with some extra cash working part-time at one of these companies if required. This makes Malta a great place to start your adventure if you do not yet have enough income from your online ventures to support yourself.
Whilst in Gozo you can take advantage of the opportunities Malta has to offer without being burdened by having to live in the mayhem of Malta.
Malta is very well connected with most European cities.
