Azure Window, Island of Gozo

(4.7/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
(Please note that due to heavy storms, the Azure Window collapsed into the sea in March 2017). Swim, scuba dive, or take a boat around the waters of Azure Window, a limestone arch formation. The arch was created when two limestone sea caves collapsed, leaving a rock formation that resembles a window to the brilliantly blue sea. Note that walking on top of the rocks is strictly forbidden. Make sure to bring your camera along to capture photos of this unusual structure and its surrounding scenery. Game of Thrones fans may recognize this attraction from season one of the television series. Put Azure Window into our San Lawrenz tour planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • We were a very bad day to visit the Azure Window. I had never seen a sea so bravo as that day. Even so, the visit was impressive since the monumental arch formed by the rocks together with the waves jumping left a precious snapshots. Visit a must!

  • Is one of the must-see sights in Malta. Breathtaking natural landscape. with passibilidade to swim in the Blue Hole (take appropriate footwear for walking on the rocks) and make a boat ride around the Dwejra Bay and through several caves. Unforgettable!

  • A quiet place with this beautiful natural view. We went on March, so the place was not too crowded. It's possible to walk and discover how erosion creates such characteristic shapes on the ground.  more »

  • One of the most beautiful places in the world!!! But has lost its magnificence and beauty this week. AZURE WINDOW did not resist the forces of nature and disappeared forever...😢
  • A stop was a part of our sea adventure tour, but definitely worth it. I suggest to everybody who visits Gozo to go there and take a look. It's perfect for taking nice pictures and specially when the weather is nice.
  • Amazing place. If you are up for a wonderful coastline hike just head up down south and walk along the path...views are breathtaking and tourist free ;)
  • So sad today Gozo lost the Azure Window. It collapsed this morning after a strong force 8 storm. It's a heart breaking news. But this place will stil be worth visiting the Inland sea, the fungus rock and the amazing sunset - the blue of the sky contrasting against the blue ocean.
  • This place is amazing. We made it there before sunset and the whole landscape was breathtaking. You look around and it's a beautiful scene the likes of which you won't see again in a long time
