I came here for the first time in 2017 - 5 years previously, literally days before the famous Azure Window collapsed, drawn here by Game of Thrones where the wedding scenes for Drogo and Daenerys were filmed. It was a windy day then but calm this time. It's easy to get here by bus or even on foot from Victoria as Gozo is such a small island - there is at least one restaurant in the village with others further up the hill and plenty to see once you have walked down to the Bay. The scenery as with the entire island is stunning with views in all directions and some truly fantastic walks. It would be easy to spend at least half a day here.

Gozo is a small island with no airports, so it can only be accessed by boat or the Gozo Channel ferry from Malta. The Azure window (in the picture) has now collapsed by the rough sea waves, but at Wied il-Mielaħ there is another window which is a limestone natural arch on the north-western coast of the island of Gozo. It is located at the end of the valley Wied il-Mielaħ north of the village of Għarb. The best time to visit the cliffs and Gozo is during Spring or better at Easter time. The Carnival of Nadur is also a very spectacular event happening in Gozo.

About halfway between Kercem and San Lawrenz [about the cliffs above Xlendi Bay] there is an unmarked coastal path that travels the entire length of the cliffs all the way to the Azul Window past Dwejra Bay. Some of the path may be a little overgrown so pants made it nice not to get shins nicked up but most of it is open just fine. One of the most spectacular coastal hikes that exists.

This is one of the most wonderful landscapes in Malta. The yellow limestone and the blue sea are a great setting for half a day or even a day of leisure. Things to see include the famous Azure Window rock arch, the Inland Sea, the little chapel on the hillside. Historical monuments are the medieval watchtower above the bay and the Bronze Age "Cart ruts". For divers there is the well-known Blue Hole, underwater caves. Those who love boat rides, can sit in one of the boats on the Inland Sea, and cross the caves to come to the open sea, and get closer to the Azure Window that way. Be aware that Dwejra is a protected area!

We visited Dwejra many times on our trip to Gozo. We kept going back because we always felt safe swimming there. Its very clean and it's like swimming in a big swimming pool. Its just beautiful. It wasn't very busy the only time that you thought it might start getting busy was when a tourist bus turned up, but they would only be there to take the boat ride and return to their buses. We used to park right up to the water taking the car down the ramp. The boat ride was enjoyable with the boatman speaking a combination of Maltese, English and Italian so we all could understand. The only tricky part about swimming at Dwejra is coming out of the water. The boat ramps are quite mossy and slippery. Its handy to have someone to help you out of the water. The second option would be to come out of the water via the pebbles but once again good for someone to hand you some flip flops because the pebbles are hard on your feet.

Went with a rented car. The road was awful. Would recommend a guided tour with ATV. The view is beautiful but no possibility to take a swim.

Our personal tour guide (a new-found almost ex-limey, complete with parrot called 'George,' on a type of leash, who behaved himself with flying colours!) took us round Gozo, including many of his former haunts as an ex 8-yr resident of Gozo. One place he recommended us to see and have lunch at the same time was the Inland Sea of Dwejra.

Sitting at what appeared to be the only cafe right at the water-front, on a sloping ramp, which literally stopped at the water's edge, we ate tuna sandwiches with Maltese bread and garnished with salad. They were really well prepared and delivered with a smile. It seems that the owner remembered our guide from a few years earlier, and did us proud! We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Cheap too!

We then purchased a boat ride on one of the many 8-seater vessels that plied the local waters and enjoyed a trip through a very narrow gap in the massive rocks, with a sizeable swell that dictates whether boats should or not navigate the exit to the main Med. Sea. (according to probable damage!).

Our ride took us for about a 20-minute exit from the Inland sea and out onto a marvellous bit of coast-line boasting vibrant colours of marine life adhering ti the rocks at and below high water mark, as well as a beautiful deep almost fluorescent gluey-purple colour of the deeper parts.

The 'captain' gave us an in-depth narration, which seemed well-informed and interesting, to boot! Returning to the quay-side, We were introduced to a couple of local people, whose livelihoods were from this place, before continuing with our Gozo tour!

The island of Gozo is full of places not to miss. The cliffs just west of San Lawrenz, at Dwejra point, are certainly one of these and tucked away down a steep slope behind the main car park is tiny lagoon with a large cave entrance. The boat trip, only €3.50, is something we nearly missed but very glad we didn't. A small boat takes you through the cave and out the other side to see the cliffs from sea level. Right beneath the 100m Azure window and into other caves, it is worth every penny (cent).
Look out for this sideshow, but watch your step on the slope down.
