The diving here is great. The topography underwater is something special here and the water visibility amazing. My dive centre Bubbles said it is THE dive to do on Gozo and it did not disappoint at all. The fact that you have the Azure Window opposite the dive spot makes it that much better. Fantastic

Blue hole is an interesting geological formation near the Azure window. It is a popular diving spot. It is a collapsed cave. The water is amazingly blue here.

It was so easy to walk to the various sites of interest. the countryside was at its best with fields and verges blooming with wild flowers, connecting village to village. The Blue Hole was awesome and one of the main attractions of Gozo.

This is a great looking place to dive. Divers would appreciate the ultra deep blue hole (apx. 40 meters deep), which leads to the open sea if you are brave enough to dive there. Just make sure the sea is extra calm, otherwise it's a life-threatening experience.

Go, before it falls into the sea. That's the Azure Window, the natural stone arch you see in the photo. It is gradually crumbling and when it's gone ...well it's gone! The Blue Hole is a favourite amongst divers, I've dived it several times and it can get a bit ...busy and it's not the easiest of entry points to... More

Azure Window is an interesting arch-like stone formation and is much like a must-see when in Gozo. There is a car park on the site, surrounded by small kiosks, cafes and restaurants, providing the only shadow. Otherwise it is very very open site with no shadow and open to all winds, so it can be extremely hot there during the... More

One of the best places on the planet, great spot for deep sea diving. We loved it and spent 2 days exploring the complete stretch of the blue hole.

My partner and I took a day trip to Gozo and went on a tour with a private hire taxi. He took us to all if the main parts of Gozo and our first stop was the blue window. You travel via a very small boat and everyone must wear life jackets. You pass through a very small cave just... More

The water are so clear and still, when viewed from above it looks like the swimmers are floating in mid air, weird.
