Xlendi is a small town on the island of Gozo and in Roman times protected ships from bad weather. Today the place is a popular destination for tourists and there are some hotels, bars and restaurants on the promenade, where there is even a very small sandy beach. The place is also popular for swimming, snorkeling and diving, for which there are always access to the sea along the bay.
The bay on which Xlendi is located is approx. 500 meters long and only 70 meters wide at the narrowest point. At the beginning of the steep, rocky bay is the Xlendi Tower. This was built in 1650 and is now the oldest free-standing watchtower on the island of Gozo. The way to the tower is not far, but narrow and rocky, which is why it is not suitable for people with walking difficulties and pushchairs.
The place is easy to reach by car and there is a large free parking lot centrally. In the evening, however, when all island residents and visitors visit the local restaurants and bars, this can become too small.

Conclusion: For us, Xlendi was the ideal starting point for day tours both on Gozo itself and on Malta and Comino. There are enough restaurants in the evening and there are many opportunities to go into the sea.
