The Azure Window is a beautiful natural arch on the west side of the island that reaches out into the Mediterranean that can be reached on foot if you want, but also by sea. Nearby, the Blue Hole is one of the great diving spots of the world, but you can also see it from above the water. Make sure to wear really good shoes because the walk is very rocky and slippery.
The Fungus Rock has been named after a special plant growing only on top of this rock. The Knights of St. John believed in the curing power of this plant.

You can swim or navigate the caves by boat, exiting under the Azure window arch.
