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.

  • A few weeks earlier and we would have seen it! Due to the elements this is no longer a window. Sea and rocks still beautiful though. Amazing Fossils in the rocks. Such clear sea... Look out for the fi...  more »
  • The azure window has now fallen into the sea, but it was the most beautiful part of the whole island in Gozo. The sight is still worth visiting but not the same.  more »
  • We went there a week too late. The site is superb, but it obviously lacks the azure Window. A little disappointed not to see, but it's rest I think a magical place.

  • 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
