Malta/Gozo
The Inland Sea

The Inland Sea is located near Dwejra Point and Dwejra bay, Gozo.

A small sea lake connected to the open Mediterranean Sea only by a narrow tunnel through the cliffs. The tunnel is wide enough to allow the passage of small boats.
It is thought that the Inland Sea started life as a tunnel entrance leading to a sea cave, and that at some point the roof of the cave collapsed creating the through tunnel, which was then further extended by natural erosion.


Please see workshop for close-up of cave.

Very special view Bill, the workshop gives a helpfull lead.
What a place. Maybe very warm for the people in summer, with the big sort of wall close of the sea wind.

Bye

Hi Bill. Great shot of my mother country! I live in the UK but I've been to Dwejra last month. Your pictures are great. Ed

Hello Bill,

I guess this has been a popular harbour up through the years!
This creation of nature makes a fortress better than most, and I can understand why a village has been established here...
A well composed presentation with sharp fine details!

Greetings,
