We Love Xlendi. Breathtaking Treasure of Gozo Island.
Xlendi lies on Gozo's southwest coast.
It is a small village located at the bottom of a very steep valley, very close to the capital Victoria.
The bay used to be a sleepy fishing village in the past. Nowadays, the area has been transformed into a lovely holiday resort with excellent restaurants and cosy hotels. However, the place still retains its natural spin. A few traditional colourful fishing boats are still anchored there.
There is a small sandy beach leading into shallow waters: ideal for young and old swimmers. More adventurous travellers can look forward to deeper water off the long stretch of rocks bordering the beach.
There are a few tourist attractions you shouldn't miss.
Xlendi Tower undoubtedly belongs to them.
The watchtower guarding the bay was built in the 17th century to prevent locals from pirate attacks. Besides, it is the oldest free-standing coastal watchtower in Gozo.
Summer time is perfect for all adrenaline junkies. The place offers various water sports activities. With the enthusiasm to plunge into water, you will enjoy an unforgettable experience. Thanks to its reef formations, Xlendi is an ideal diving spot, even for beginners.
If you don't want to spend an evening with a book, you should visit La Grotta disco. You cannot miss the buzz from this popular location, especially during summer months.
As like every tourist place, Xlendi also has a wide variety of restaurants, pizzerias and cafes where visitors can spend their free time in a pleasant way.
