A wonderful dive site - rightly rated as one of the best in the World, but seeing the boulders on the seabed under the Azure Window makes it obvious why there are signs (ignored by many tourists) saying that walking on it is banned! It is only a matter of time before the whole thing falls into the sea?

We went on the boat trip to see the Inland Sea, Blue Hole and Azure window. It was amazing - a definite must visit. I'm going again in a few weeks to take my daughter so she can see it. It's one of those once in a lifetime events

Great start and end point for scuba diving. Decent sized car park but it fills up quickly so arrive early. There are Several refreshment areas but the area is rocky so wear decent foot wear even for the water.

This was another visit with our SAGA group. The arch is indeed impressive, but for how long? Despite warning notices, we saw at least one couple walking across the top. Hmm, the boat trip below, from the cave, out into the sea, through the arch & back looked exciting, with life jackets de-rigeur, but we didn't dare!

This is also known as the Azure Window. Mildly interesting when the sea is rough or there are dramatic skies. The postcards are better and there's nothing to do once you've looked at it apart from to mooch around by the tatty stalls selling dubious goods whilst waiting for the bus or your lift to take you away.

Only a short but extremely hot & uneven walk from the car park but worth doing if you can. If you're not good with heights then take the lower route down to the left to view it otherwise you could find yourself looking over the edge of a very high cliff although you do get a better impression from the...

This blue hole is part of the Cliff located in Dwejra Bay. It is called blue hall as the color osf sea water is really blue. It is very beatiful and great experince seeing the site.

The azure window/blue hole is an incredibly romantic place - particularly at sunrise or sunset. Don't walk on top of the window as it is being damaged and parts of it are falling off.
