“Safe and attractive bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

This is a beautiful little bay in the south west of Gozo. It is surrounded by high limestone cliffs with interesting caves on one side, and hotels and restaurants on the other. The narrow entrance to the bay moderates the waves so it is usually safe for swimming. I say 'usually' because when it is choppy outside the bay, sea jellies (or jellyfish) sometimes come into the bay and some varieties will give you a nasty sting. The only other significant downside is the floating rubbish, which sometimes gets washed up onto the small sandy beach.

“Beautiful clean sea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

I love Xlendi Bay, the rocky beach especially. Deep blue sea with excellent currents so the water is always fresh. Good places to jump from and further up there are umbrellas and deckchairs for hire. It is worthwhile climbing up the stairs to the top of the cliff in the evening to see the lovely view of the bay.

“Great place to jump into the Mediterranean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We love Xlendi- we went almost daily. We put our towels on the rocks and then we jumped into a roped off area. The water is super clear and the atmosphere is charming. Towards the inlet there is a diving platform that was 10-15 ft above the water. There are quaint shops nearby and great restaurants. It was a Gozo favorite spot.

“Quaint and unspoiled”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Everything you want in a Mediterranean trip -- small, beautiful water, steep cliffs, and relatively untouched -- with easy access by bus and taxi to the ferry and Victoria.
