Inland Sea (16)
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.
