Expert review of Dwejra
Dwejra has become a bit of a mini-tourist centre because of its rock formations. The inland sea - actually a large cave whose roof long ago fell in - is the site for an enjoyable little boat ride through an 80 metres tunnel that rises like a gothic cathedral above you leading out onto the open sea. Here the boatmen show you a few more caves, some colourful corals and the view (cameras ready?) directly through the rock arch known as the Azure Window. This can also be seen from land, along with Fungus Rock where a rare plant (not, it turned out, a fungus) grows. So sought after was this plant for its medicinal properties that the Knights had the rock guarded night and day and threatened thieves with a spell in the galleys.
The rocky landscape continues below the surface of the water and Dwejra is considered to have some of the best dives in the Mediterranean - for experienced divers only. You can also swim and snorkel here in calm weather.
The boat trip costs 3.50 euros per person.
