Azure Window

Gozo, Malta

A beautiful accident of geology frames the deep blues of sea and sky on the coast of Gozo, the northernmost of the Maltese Islands. Millions of years ago, a limestone cave collapsed, leaving behind this stunning formation known as the Azure Window. A draw for travelers, the Azure Window may not be a window for long; its rocky lintel is dwindling thanks to the forces of wind and sea. Maltese officials already have a new moniker waiting for when erosion prevails, which is likely to happen soon: The Azure Pinnacle.
