Really nice!

Even though the azure window is not longer there you can still see some of the beauty of the blue home. Must visit.

This is a rather nice spot to come and dive in. It can be tricky suiting up in the car park and moving slowly across the rocks with all your dive kit. But it is worth it. In winter time it is not too busy but in summer it can get crowded with many divers. As you descend into the... More

It was an amazing place to dive or just make beautiful photos. Too bad the thing collapsed yesterday, because it was one of my favorite parts of Malta.

Everybody has to visit the Blue Hole or Azure Window. It is indeed a fine sight, especially when the sun is shining. Car parking was easy and a very short but rough walk across the rocks give a superb view. Get some photos and leave. There is nothing more to it.

this is a nice formation, if you've never seen anything like this then take advantage if you're on Gozo, but if you've seen plenty of arches then take it from the must do list

The Blue Hole is a water sculpted blow hole close by the Azure Window. Itis a fairly hazardous walk to it but well worth the effort.
