Welcome to Dwejra


Dwejra, with its secluded pebbled bathing pool and crystal clear water, is known as the 'inland sea' and provides the enjoyable experience of diving into the 'blue hole' near the Azure Window. It is an area with strange rock formations causing interesting swimming holes. It's most famous rock is Fungus Rock, which was apparently heavily guarded during the era of the Knights of Malta because a special plant with healing properties grew upon it, and stealing the plant was liable to earn the thief the death penalty.
