Gozo’s coast is dotted with picturesque bays and villages, and Xlendi is the prettiest of the bunch. Thanks to three natural caves located within the bay, Xlendi is a popular location for swimming and diving. Take in the peaceful atmosphere of the bay’s pebble beach and cafés, or follow the promenade, cross the bridge and climb the steps to enjoy the view that includes natural salt pans, a limestone cave and the 17th-century Xlendi Tower.
