The bay of Ix-Xlendi is a famous place for bathing, snorkelling and diving. There is a small sandy beach that leads to a shallow water mirror, suitable for both large and small, while for the most daring it is nice to swim and snorkel in the deeper waters that lie behind the rocky block that runs along the beach.

For its rock formations, ix-Xlendi is the ideal place for diving, even for beginners. This is also a typical fishing village of Gozo and is well served by good restaurants, bars and hotels.

Ix-Xlendi is located on the southwest coast of Gozo.
