Azure Window, Island of Gozo

Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web
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.

  • The Azure window in Dwejra Bay, is a fine example of a sea arch, formed by years of erosion by the sea. This particular example is quite a decent size. Cross some rocky terrain and you can get excelle...  read more »
  • I do not understand the fuzz about this place. The rock is nice to see but I did not find the spectular. We went at the end of the afternoon to see the rock in low sunlight. I could take a picture wit...  read more »
  • It is just a hole through a rock; not particularly photogenic. The access is limited and the location is shabby; not really much to recommend. Of interest might be the numerous echinoderm fossils whic...  read more »
  • Lovely scenery. One of the coolest natural structures I've ever seen. It's a shame some use it as they're personal trash can. The salt deposits are teaming with trash and cigarette butts. While I was there, I even saw a woman but out her cigarette right on the rocks, and just left it there. Disgusting.
  • Fantastic site but get there early as it gets packed with tourists who will trample you to get to the water. Wear good walking sandles or shoes you can get wet as the rocks are very jagged and it never ceases to amaze me how many people try to negotiate wet rocks in flipflops. Dumbass.
  • The Good: The food was very good, no complaints there. The views. The Bad: Do not go on a sunny day, an hour or two before sunset. Most of the tables are set up in such a way where you will be sitting in direct sunlight when you are inside. We were sweating (profoundly) at our table. There are huge glass windows all around the dining area. While nice for views, it can get incredibly hot sitting at your table. After we got our food, we were never checked up on until we finished by our waitress. The remainder of the time the three employees working the dining room were all talking to each other, rather loudly, the entire time. Also, other reviewers mentioned getting complementary bruschetta with their meal. I guess that's not the norm. We got sliced bread with button/olive oil.
  • Must see place, don't leave without it. If you like to hike you can follow the trails up and around for nice views of the lagoon and on the other side endless view of water.
  • Beautiful spot to swim and watch the sunset. Little ice cream trucks, sandwich shop, and nicer seafood restaurant nearby. Busses run until around 22:00
