Fungus Rock, situated off the coast of Gozo, Malta, is a striking natural landmark steeped in history and legend. This towering limestone rock formation rises majestically from the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea. It earned its name from a rare species of dark green moss, the Cynomorium coccineum, once believed to have medicinal properties. Accessible only by boat, Fungus Rock captivates visitors with its rugged beauty and intriguing folklore. The unique angle visible in the image is facing westwards from the sea.
