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.

The "cave" must be 80 to 100 m in length providing a passageway to the open sea.
