Amazing views over Ramla Bay, although the cave is now closed to the public due to danger. The love prison of Ulysses Calypso Cave is located in a cliff just off Xaghra; overlooking Gozo’s most sought-after sandy beach, Ramla Bay. This site is thought to be the same cave Homer mentioned in `The…

Point of Interest
“Hidden beneath an ordinary home in a street that bears the cave’s name in ix-Xagħra, is a small cavern with stalactites and stalagmites. The cave was discovered in 1924 by the current owners’ grandfather while he was digging a well. It is illuminated by electric lights so that visitors can see the rock formations. Entry is via a 10m spiral staircase, built into the original well shaft (so not sutable for anyone with vertigo, mobility problems or a large girth). In the cave you take a circular tour of about 30m past some very pretty calcified formations 25 cm to a metre tall. There are also some interesting formations, which have developed as a result of calcification of tree roots.”

“Not easy to reach, but that's the exact reason why I like to go here. Away from everything and everyone, a beach on the Mediterranean. What else do we really need?”

“A four meter descent down a flight of stairs in an ordinary house on January Street in Xagħra, reveals a quirky discovery of stalactite and stalagmite formations in a cave. Ninu's cave was discovered in 1888 by Joseph Rapa who was digging for a well in the residence. Another similar remarkable discovery by Anthony Xerri took place a few years later in 1923, just a few streets away, in what is known today as Xerri's Grotto. Today, both caves are well illuminated and open to the public. ”
