    Azure Window & Fungus Rock

    by himalia11 Written Jul 30, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Azure Windows is a 100 m long slab, which lies on one end on the mainland and the other end on a rock in the sea. Next to it is the so-called "inland sea" which is rather small and where lots of people were swimming and snorkelling. From the lake you can go by boat to the sea through a small gap in the rocks. There are some fisher boats that will take you out there for 1,50 LM per person and show you the Azure Window, some interesting rock formations and some corals. It didn't took long, maybe 15 minutes, but it was great and I enjoyed the waves out at the sea which was very funny with this little boat!

    Next to the Azure Window is the Fungus Rock. A kind of mushroom was growing there, and was used by the knights against some diseases. They earned quite a lot of money with this miracle cure and there even was a watchtower so that nobody "stole" the plants.

    What I find amazing about this place is that it is simply spectacular any time of the year. Whether you are left amazed by the impressive waves crashing high inside the azure window or wondering around the place on a sunny day, this is a must visit any time of the year. Unfortunately the window is short-lived as it will eventually collapse. Notwithstanding that it will still remain a wonder of Nature, do not miss out visiting the place until it happens.

    The Azure Window

    Gozo has quite an amazing history, however it also ranks high in the natural beauty category. One place that is not to be missed is the Azure Window on the western side of the island. This natural arch projects out into the Mediterranean Sea. You will want to have a camera here and have your photo taken with it. Many people also swim in this area. Although the shoreline is rocky, there is easy access to the water when you can easily see the arch. In this immediate area are some snack concession areas. You can also see a rock formation called "Fungus Rock" which sticks out of the water and is set against a cliff in the background. Nearby is the "Inland Sea", where the water has come into an enclosed area through tunnels in the rock. You can also see an old watchtower nearby. There are several of these scattered across the Maltese Islands. Needless to say, this is a very scenic place. There is no admission charge to view the window and walk around the shore.

    Dwejra Bay: Azure Window

    by krissyM Written Jun 12, 2008

    The Azure window is a 50m high rock arch set in the Dwejra Bay cliffs.

    Unfortuneately, it is predicted that within the next 10 years the archway will have crumbled into the sea. Constant erosion is causing large pieces of rock to fall away from the arch. As a result warning signs have been put up to warn people not to walk over the top of the arch.

    Some of Gozos most beautiful coastal scenary is found at Dwejra and the Azure Window is the most instantly impressive. The sea cliffs have formed a natural arch which stands magestically in the blue waters.

    In front of the azure window is a famous and spectacular dive site known as the Blue Hole. This is a natural vertical chimney in the rock which connects with the open water at approximatley 8 metres down through an underwater archway.

    A natural arch created by the erosion of the sea water and wind.
    Beautiful view, the becomes spectacular with rough sea and wind, when the waves hit the rock and the water jets through the hole.
    The Gozitans (inhabitants of Gozo) have always called it it-Tieqa (the Window).

    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.

    So here are my views about the sights.

    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.
