Wow what a beautiful place. The rocks are pock marked,very rough, don't make for comfortable seating, but I imagine a geologists dream. You have to be careful of walking, but it makes it more interesting. The views are amazing There are lots of fossils, and sea creatures remains in the rocks too.

After having the wettest February in Malta history, we finally got a nice sunny day. What a great sight as you come down the twisty road and see the Azure Window in the sun. It's surrounded by a moonscape of rock with rockpools which are great to walk thru. What a view!!! It's a must see!!!

This spectacular natural arch set against the azure Mediterranean sea is well worth a trip to see. It was used as the backdrop for the wedding of Khal Drogo and Daenerys in the first season of "A Game of Thrones" (amazing what you can learn from in-flight magazines, isn't it?) There's a couple of flights of steps going down to... More

Head over on a sunny day, for a perfect sunset. In february it's not very crowded and the area is beautiful. Also worth a go is walking back towards Gharb/San Lawrence: takes no more than half an hour and the view is brilliant once you're high-up the road!

If you visit Gozo you have to visit Dwejra or as it is known 'The Azure Window'. Next to it is an inland sea where you can take a boat trip to the Azure Window....A DEFINITE MUST if visiting Gozo

Sited over the inland sea at Dwejra is best visited during the day because at night one cannot see the unique inland sea.

Very few people including the locals, know that there are actually 2 similar windows close to each other. The only reason that the Azure Window is famous is that this one is way more accessible. While the other one can only be seen from the opposite side when trekking in the fields of Gozo near the cliffs to the left... More

My visit here was met with high winds and rough seas. I feel so lucky that I got to see this spot in such a turmoil. Due to this, there was no boat rides but it did not take away from the experience in the least. The natural beauty was astounding and just watching the force of the ocean crashing... More

Well worth a visit. Make sure you visit when the sun is shining for the best colours in the afternoon and if the sea is calm take the trip on the boats on the inland sea - 4euros each- which goes through a tunnel in the rocks out to open sea and visits the caves and the azure window.
