beautiful walk from Xlendi to the Azure Window on the second day since arrival at Gozo. It is a pity that we could not see the natural wonder of a 28-metre limestone arch standing proudly on the sea. It consisted of a pillar of rock rising from the sea and joined to the cliff by a horizontal slab. Though strong it was defeated by erosion, storm and collapsed. Its parts are now sitting on the sea bed. Nevertheless, the hike between Xlendi and the Azure Window is stunningly beautiful. We were accompanied with blue sky, dramatic white cliffs, colourful flowers and amazing views all along.
Stone Crab (one of the famous restaurants) at Xlendi Bay, walked up a staircase to go further to the direction of the Azure Window. Look back from there you will see the beautiful Xlendi Bay.
When you come to a Y junction, go left and continue a big country road for about 2km to arrive at Ta’ Sarraflu fresh water pool. Then take the concrete track bounded by rubble walls across the road from the pool. It will take you towards the cliffs and offers fantastic views towards Xlendi.
Wardija Point. There stands the Punic sanctuary which was carved into the yellow limestone 2,500 years ago. From this point in front of you are the magnificent views of the Dwejra Bay, Fungus Rock and Azure Window if it hadn't collapsed.
Going forward we continued to enjoy the tranquillity, the beautiful blue and immense space. Different gorgeous spots dot the path. No wonder this is one of the top trails in the world, not only in Gozo.
After heading down, we walked towards the sea. It was very windy. So, be careful. It was fabulous to climb / walk across the coastal rocks, sit there and admire the mother nature.
