Don't forget to miss the inland lake a few walking minutes away from the coast. In high season it might be tricky to get the perfect photo due to masses of tourists.

Lovely pleasant view and stunning azure window. Really beautiful scenery. There are boat rides in summer season to have a ride on a small boat and go into the Caves, which I would of liked to do but unfortunately for me wrong time of year. You can walk along the rocks a little tricky at times but felt like an... More

Well worth a visit. Great pictures are guaranteed and are so easy to take. Read articles that suggest the great arch could soon collapse into the sea, and the erosion on the thickness of the arch is easily seen when compared to earlier photos. Don't leave it to long!

A short 20 minute ferry ride from Malta took me to its sister island of Gozo. Once we landed, it took only about 40 minutes to get to Dwerja Bay andf its famous "Azure Window" on the western coast.. Its best to take one of the numerous small skiffs that take you on a 1/2 ride to the caves as... More

The Azure window and it's surrounding landscape is amazing, The inland sea is also incredible. Quite a tourist magnet (with good reason) so you're never likely to be on your own but so what? Take your camera soak up the sights and sounds of the sea and enjoy!

Amazing attraction attended to by lots of tourists as well as locals. Perfect sunset in Summer and the pittoresque scenery is breath taking. I totally recommend anyone to visit this place while in Gozo

Have not been to the Azure Window for 11 years but was sad to see that it has been significantly commercialised since then. The good thing is railings are now fitted to assist people walking down the uneven rocks to get the best view of this natural phenomena, but sadly the surrounding area is now blighted by hawkers. A wooden... More

Beautiful, stunning place. I visited many time on many occasions, a perfect place to chill out and watch the sunset at the end of the evening, excellent diving spots nearby too... worth a visit.

The area is just amazing for diving swimming sunbathing and generally watching the world go by whilst you people watch.
