No blog about Gozo would be complete without mentioning Dwejra. It's where the Azure Window is located, which is the island's most famous natural landmark. But there are other natural features to be found, such as Fungus Rock, Dwejra Bay itself, and the Inland Sea, so it's a very popular spot for tourists. The area is also littered with fossils on the raised sea bed where this snap of The Azure Window was taken. Then there's Dwejra watchtower which is the best on the island and open to visitors.
It's all well worth seeing, but for me Dwejra is about diving. There are three entry points which make for very different dives: At the Inland Sea, going through the tunnel and back. At the Coral Garden, which lies just to the left of the Blue Hole, shown in there with the Azure Window in the background. And the Blue Hole itself, which is the dive I describe in Naked Hero. It is the most popular dive around Gozo, and rightly so. If you want to see big fish then Reqqa Reef is better, but the Blue Hole has more in the way of geological drama. The hole itself is something to see - seemingly cut off from the sea. But ten meters down there is another window which links the Blue Hole to the main. And that's just for starters. With the reefs, boulders, a chimney to ascend, and plenty of fish as well, it's a magical dive and deserving of it's status.
I hope I did it justice when I described it through Lewis's awestruck eyes.
