A shore dive in Gozo that’s sure to put a smile on any divers face. Entry point being just right under the Azure window is already spectacular in itself. As you enter the crystal clear waters in the blue hole, you can start your descent.
At around 5 meters you will see the opening that leads out into the open sea. I have given this a 5 star rating, it's by far the best of the best as dives go! It is simply an experience not to be missed.
This site has great views and is probably the most famous dive site in the Maltese islands as one can have the most extraordinary dive! Apart from the naturally formed Azure window, it has also an inland sea. The visibility is considered quite good (10 - 35 metres) and the current is generally low (1 knot). It is situated at the west side of Gozo at Dwejra bay which is a natural heritage site.
After a short walk on rough coralline limestone using steps which have been carved for easier access, the divers will immerse in wonderful blue sea. The Blue Hole is a natural rock formation carved out over the centuries by wind and waves which goes down to a depth of 26 metres. The hole is about one metre above sea level and no more than 10 metres wide and 5 metres across. However, a few metres down, this gives way to unlimited access to the sea on exiting a huge archway. A large cave can also be found at the bottom of the hole called the Chimney with a sandy bottom. The cave is quite deep inside the blue hole and torch is a must. One has to always be careful not to touch the sandy bottom as it can murk the water and reduce the visibility to the exit. This Chimney rises from 20 to 9 metres and exits in an area which is called the garden. Throughout the dive, one can see various species of fish, starfish and bristle worms. This dive is perfect for photography.
