What a dive!

The sight is fantastic! But you need to be fit to be able to reach the spot where you enter the water. It is a straining walk over slippery stones and ladders. The divesite is... read more

Sea was a bit choppy, and it was a very small boat. The sea is a lovely colour and you could see the coral beneath. I insisted on wearing a life jacket and was glad I did. The waves really crash against the rocks and I did feel a little unsafe.

The sight is fantastic! But you need to be fit to be able to reach the spot where you enter the water. It is a straining walk over slippery stones and ladders. The divesite is nice but not much wildlife to see, mostly its about the rock formations which are really cool.

A great view through the natural window to the sea, however the local area was a little unkempt. Small local harbour had character.

I lived near here for about a month and I have to say it is beautiful, but once you've seen it, that's it. Do not jump off of the top or the folks that own the restaurant nearby will have to call the emergency services. What spoiled it for me was seeing it in pictures and on YouTube before actually...

If you're limited by your physical abilities to access difficult terrain, keep away. It is largely a rocky lunar landscape to access the Azure Window, but try to make the effort because its beautiful and a perfect Photo Spot. Divers have to traverse this rocky access to gain entry to the water for their dives, its quite treacherous.

Its Ok , spoiled by horrible functional buildings in the vicinity. Its busy, the 311 bus runs about every hour but not late once the winter timetable kicks in.

When the sea is too choppy for diving, the views of the blue hole are spectacular as the crashing waves and strong winds create a magnificent scene. Highly recommended but there isn't much else there except a couple of ice cream vans, a small gift shop and the Azure Window restaurant.

Wander down from San Lawrenz at sunset, or on a day of clear blue sky and a fresh westerly breeze and enjoy the drama of the waves crashing against the rocks. A good walk takes you past the Dwerja Tower and carry on up the hill to the cliff beyond to get a spectacular view back the way you came,... More

We had limited time whilst on a tour which meant we didn't get to spent as much time here as we would like. We really want to go back one day and watch the sunset and take a dive.

We have dived here several times as visiting scuba divers and it never fails to thrill us, a superb dive site.
