Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Malta  /  Island of Gozo  /  Azure Window

Azure Window, Island of Gozo

4.6
#1 of 26 in Nature in Malta
(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. Before you visit San Lawrenz, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

    This place is magical, even if the azure window is no longer the since March 2017. The place is the best spot for the sunset to have tears in the eyes. Must-have!

    Unfortunately in March 2017 a violent storm blew away this attraction, but deserves the same visit the Bay in which it was situated. Dwejra Bay, where you can dive into the blue hole, taking a boat trip in beautiful Cove adjacent entering caves or eat at the yummy restaurant azure window.

    The morning with Scooter we boarded to Gozo after all morning and mid afternoon we shot among the various beaches in Gozo, we went here too! Is a fantastic place, do you have to be careful where you walk and nn risk, the views are great! Is a place to visit and at a time that the sea is agitated a bit you feel on your skin L thrill of water of up to meters away

    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...😢

    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.
