Azure Window, Island of Gozo

4.6
#1 of 27 in Nature in Malta
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
(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.

  • Although the window not there, still go and swim in the rock pool. It's a magical place. Walk down and follow the tracks.  more »
  • Unfortunately the azure window and fell apart in the spring falling overboard, but the place is worth a visit! The sea is deep blue and the small Bay from an outlet through the reef to the open sea! Fantastic swim through paying attention to the small boats that take tourists to see where there was the famous window! On warm days the shadow it is really little better bring umbrella!

  • Early 2017 a bad storm tore down the beautiful sea of Gozo natural arch window. I had time to spend a wonderful afternoon of December and to enjoy the view and the uniqueness of this natural treasure. A tribute.

  • It was our guides first visit to window since it fell back into the sea. She told us that generations of family's would visit the site and took their kids to see it. So it's sad we never got to see it. St Mary's church is there and it's quite photogenic and the coastline is great for a walk.
  • 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...😢
  • What a beautiful place come here every time we visit...there's a lovely little cafe there run by a Maltese family and the food and service is amazing...if you go too Gozo you must visit you won't regret it...see you next year.....
  • This place is breathtaking, i spent about 2 hours here wating the sun set. The only way to complete the experience is to have a meal at the azure window restaurant. Recently updated Unfortunatly due to bad weather and natural erosion the window is no more.
  • Unfortunately it doesnt exist anymore... but the place is still beautiful 😀 try ice cream from the truck there ! Delicious!
