“A lovely hike from Molendini Farmhouse can take you to the village of San Lawrenz and on to Dwejra where the Azzure Window was once located. Another geological phenomenon in this local is a deep blue void created by a collapsed underwater limestone cave referred to as the 'Blue Hole'. It is accessible to divers, but can be seem from the rocky beach above also. In the same area one finds Dweja's inlet sea also worth a visit. ”

Dive Shop
“ Dwejra Bay (including the Inland Sea and Dwejra Tower) offers visitors beautiful coastal formations where one can enjoy a swim in the deep sea of the bay, in the calm shallows of the inland sea or in the waters around the Blue Hole (one of Malta's top dive sites). For those less keen on plunging into the water, one may also hike around the area where the ''Azure Window was'' (a natural arch that unfortunately collapsed in May 2017). Although Azure Window may not be there anymore, visitors will still enjoy the breathtaking views even Game of Thrones fans will enjoy as scenes for King’s Landing (including the Sept of Baelor and the Red Keep) and the Dothraki Wedding were filmed!”
