    Azure window

    Just near to the Fungus Rock at Dwejra Bay is the most well photograhed sight on Gozo - the Azure Window - well actually its more like a door. We spent about 40 minutes here and at the inland sea, clambering around the rocks trying to snap it from every possible angle (but not on top of it as it was considered too slippy and unsafe, there are danger signs up). It really is a sceic sight of Gozo and a definite must see.

    The Azure Window

    A natural arch in the rocks provides a visually appealing "window" through which you can see the sea and the cliffs beyond. You can clamber down and around the rock face here (to the right as we look) to get a better, closer look and to see it from different angles. I did the climb, got my feet wet and got no pictures as my batteries gave out at that moment! I do have plenty that I took from this other easier vantage point though.

    The Azure Window

    This is the loveliest part of Gozo and definitely not to be missed! The spectacular Azure Window in Dwejra Bay is a natural archway which was formed over thousands of years by the erosion of the wind and the sea. It is probably the most photographed landmark on Gozo and can also been seen in some films, such as "The Clash of the Titans" (towards the end) and the American mini-series "The Odyssey".

    When in Gozo, I always visit the Azure Window. I even went there one January day when the weather was very bad and the sea was dangerously rough. It was completely deserted but it looked even more spectacular with the huge waves crashing on the rocks.

    Also of interest in the area is the Inlet Sea, the Fungus Rock, the Qawra knight's tower and the tiny St Anna chapel. What I also find interesting are the hundreds of shell fossils embedded in the rocks.

    Wear good shoes because the area is very rocky.

    The Azure Window of Gozo

    The breathtaking architecture man can design, nature always can beat it. The azure window is at the coast close to the Inland Sea. It's an extremely touristy spot, so don't get the wrong impression that you will be alone there. But I think the pic makes it clear that you nevertheless shouldn't miss it.

    Azure Window

    This photograph shows the natural wonder rock arch of the Azure Window at Dwejra Point.

    At the time of my visit, a climber was just packing his gear away after abseiling down. Rather him than me!!.

    To the right of the rocks I am standing on to take this photo, is the "Inland Sea", a crater into which the sea flows through a cavernous fissure in the cliffs. Small boats ply trough the gap on sightseeing trips.

    The Island is quite small but offers quite some interesting sights. Probably most of these tips will be on all Gozo pages, but that won't stop me putting them up again ;-)
    So here are my views about the sights.

    Azure Window in Dwejra!

    Azure Window in Dwejra

    The azure window was naturally created over the years by the erosion of the waves that hit against this huge rock thus creating a sort of window. When the sea is rough in Winter, in my opnion the scene looks very impressive as one can see the huge waves arise and splatter against the rock. In calm seas, the surrounding sea is very popular for scuba divers however it is also very dangerous. The sea there is very wild as it is open sea and there are loads of caves which are very attractive for divers to explore. Apparantly, quite alot of people die in this spot every year as there are also loads of underwater currents !

    The Azure Window is one of the most spectacular sights of Malta. The incredibly azure Mediterranean and the color of the cliffs around it make of the Azure Window an unforgettable experience.
    Enlarge the picture for a more impressive view!

    The Azure Window is located in Dwejra. Its unique and amazing to see what the sea and wind can create. Obviously it is one of the most popular places to visit in the island.

    A hole in the Cliffs at Gozo.
    Nice Landscape.
    Good for a walk.

    Right next to it lies the Inland Sea.
    Worth a visit as well.
