Xlendi Bay

Xlendi Bay is a small and picturesque bay in the south western part of the island. In the middle of the bay there’s fanstastic tunnel starting at only 3 m, going down to 8m. It’s safe and suitable for all levels, great as your first experience with caves and caverns. Depths between 3 and 18m outside the tunnel.

Lizardfish, goatfish and soles on a sandy bottom. Lots of salemas and colourful wrasses on the way to the tunnel. Boulders hiding morrays and scorpionfish outside.
