Many people see only the azure window and leave. Make sure you visit this small bit of sea and try and have a swim too! Slightly complicated to get to but well worth the effort taken.

Well worth a visit - if only to watch the divers come and go. See it as part of the Azure Window experience.

The blue hole deep in front of the blue window is almost not seen. However the blue window, or more precisely, the big hole in the rock, is seen nicely and attracting a lot of visitors. It is the main nature atraction of Gozo. Many visitors are missing the blue inner lake just aside of the parking place. Find a... More

Azure window is gorgeus. But u have to take a dip in fantastic Blue hole and snorkle around Azure window. It's even better to go scubadiving with professionals and instructors.

The Azure Window is a natural stone arch in the cliffs at Dwerja: you can get there by hop on/hop off bus, or much more cheaply on the hourly number 311 local bus. Get there before 1030 and it is not crowded: it goes downhill after that! Beware the local bus is small and gets very busy - and queuing... More

Tiny 20m x 20m area of sea. Pop your goggles on and look down. It is a stunning vivid blue drop with lots of little fish. You can see divers surfacing from the cave below. Wear rubber shoes and expect to get wet.

Kind of a special view through the blue window. Take a swim at the nearby so called "inland sea". Hop on one of the frequent boats that drive around the caves. Its a must and only 4 euros per person.

We dove Blue Hole and it is the best place we went diving in Gozo. It is simply perfect. The only challenge is the entry (quite a walk with your equipment) and the many many divers... But after the descent it is all worth it.
