Natural monuments seem eternal. In March 2017 the Azure Window collapsed, disappeared in the rough sea waters.
The Azure Window was the real "pearl" of the Maltese islands. It was featured in movies such as ‘The Odyssey’ or the tv series of ‘Game of Thrones.’ Outside, this structure was rock with a big hole, part of which based in the sea. Through this giant 'window," one could admire the blue expanse beyond the cliff. This legendary site is still sort of a pilgrimage spot for divers and cliff jumpers.
It was located on the west coast of Gozo, along with the Inland Sea and Fungus Rock. Moreover, this monumental arch was one of the most photographed spots of the islands, particularly spectacular during the sunset.
Even though in spring 2017 Gozo lost one of its major attractions, local entrepreneurs didn't give up. Dive centers are now promoting the underwater arch ruins as a new dive site. Scuba divers can swim by the massive chunks of the rock that fell from the Azure Window fragile structure. Besides the geological formation, there are plenty of fish to spot. Some areas here as shallow as four or five metres deep, which is an excellent depth for beginners.
