WARNING DIVERS - CAR THIEVES AT Xatt L Ahmar!!!!
Sep 2019
Whilst diving the MV Karwela early on the morning of 14th September, some thieving scrote opened broke into the the dive truck. They stole the cash from our wallets, our watches, cameras etc and then sneakily locked up the truck and b*ggered off with the swag!
The location is fantastic, just don't believe it if anyone tells you Gozo has little or no crime!

Great place for Scuba diving
May 2019 • Friends
We where on a scuba diving trip to Gozo and the dive club to us diving to Xatt l-Ahmad Bay the road to the bay is very rough so it needs carful manoeuvring but when our arrive it is very nice clear water and easy access to the sea, I was told by the diving instructor that there are 3 wrecks you can dive but we where diving the bay and the drop off.
Peaceful place but can be very busy with divers.

Not a sandy beach, not recommended for children or elderly
Jun 2018 • Couples
This is not a sandy beach, it is a vast space with jagged rocks, not to mention the horrific downward drive on a treacherous road.

This beach is my cup of tea!
Sep 2018 • Solo
Considered giving this beach a 4 star, as it is not for everyone. But from my personal opinion, I loved it and would revisit in a heartbeat. I will say this, you have to be willing to walk a little. I walked from the Grand Hotel, which was quite a hike, but doable. If you want a huge beach with room for your kids to run around, this beach is not for you. It is rocky, it is not "developed" with snack bars or anything. But it is the perfect place to relax in near-solitude. Bring your goggles, because you will see fish!

Almost all by yourself and scenic
Oct 2017 • Family
Went here during our one week on Gozo in middle of october with children at 10 and 13. The road is ok all the way down. Instead of parking at the end with the divers turn left and drive to the bay. No toilets or anything to buy, but perfect if you like it secluded and quiet. There is a ladder to enter the water. Snorkel to the right towards the spot where the divers are. Big rock walls. Not so colourful as in Thailand ex. Our son who is rather skinny had to wear a shorty wetsuit to keep him warm but the other of us could keep warm up 0,5-1 hour depending on the activitylevel.
Beautiful to go for a walk further inside the bay.

Quiet little bay
May 2017 • Couples
Overlooked by many, this is a secluded bay that we walked by enroute from Mgarr to Xlendi. There's a parking area used by divers, an ancient fenced off "fougasse", used by the Knights of Malta to defend the shore, lots of rocky scenery and little else.

Secluded area
Sep 2016 • Couples
This area was ideal for us, we like the secluded rocky areas with less people, it's down a dirt track but well worth a visit if you like to be away from the crowds and don't mind the rocks!

It is so peaceful not busy as its not really used by tourist but you must visit if you are a tourist but a car is needed as it down a very long and steep winding road have to take your own sunbeds if you need one Water lovely and good for all kids and adults No place to buy anything so need to take your own food and drink Just a few minutes from ferry

Good dive site with three wrecks
Feb 2015 • Friends
This is a great location, very scenic as most of Gozo is and a bit of history overlooking the site. It's west of Magrr ferry port and is over watched by Fort Chambray, an old French fort that looks out to Comino Island and its watch towers. You get to the site down a steep narrow road through a small farm so a four wheel drive vehicle is the right option. Our dive guide had taken this route over and over again so knows the line to follow, it's a real art and thrilling for us experiencing the ride. When you get closer to the bay there are car parking spaces some decking overlooking the diver entry points and tables to set up your gear. An information board shows the dive site, depths and locations of the three wrecks. There are ladder points to get out of the water but at that time they had been damaged by the rough seas and couldn't be used. At this time of year the sea is a little raw around the coast of Gozo and on that occasion we didn't actually get a chance to dive at the site because the ladders weren't available. However the scenery made up for not being able to jump in and explore the site, a real pitty as the water was so blue. To the east of this is a small cove that slopes into the sea also good to dive from when it's a bit calmer. Looking down at the shore line there's an old Fougasse which is a mortar dug into the rock pointing out across the bay, used to fire rocks 300 meters out at sea in an attempt to fend off raiders approaching the island. Interesting place, great views, learnt a few things and will definitely revisit to dive this site as soon as I get a chance.
