“Fantastic Dive spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

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

“Two geological wonders next to each other.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

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.

“Exploring the environs by foot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

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.

“Enigmatic and beautiful.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

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.

“One of nature's wonders ....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

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 get to when loaded up with all your dive kit but worth every awkward step
Outside of the Blue Hole there are a couple of cafes and touristy bits to take home

Try and go see when there aren't bus loads of tourists, it is after all a major attraction on all of the Gozo sites.
