Overlooking the beautiful Ramla Bay beach in Gozo, just off a cliff on Xaghra, one can find Calypso Cave. This site is thought to be the same cave Homer mentioned in `The Odyssey' where Calypso, the beautiful nymph, kept Odysseus as a `prisoner of love' for seven years. Calypso had promised him immortality if he stayed with her, but he escaped when he could, and returned to his wife Penelope.
It is said that the cave is a complex labyrinth, extending down to sea level in certain parts however, stone boulders block the way a few metres inwards. The cave's interior and exterior are not that striking, however the magnificent views over Ramla Bay and the valley make the visit all worth it.
