Xlendi - pronounced Shlendee- is a fishing village, but also a magnet for tourists.
There are plenty of little cafe's to replenish your hunger and thirst, and the one we chose was right on the bay, along the waterfront. Many local people were just drinking coffee and socialising, and of course plenty of tourists availing themselves of the food and drink on offer.
It was here that I photographed, and watched a lacemaker at work.
There were a few snorkellers, and divers that were swimming over to the rocks to investigate. A slow pace of life here it seems, and why not.
The small resort town of Xlendi (pronounced Schlendy) lies on the southern coast of Gozo. It is only a couple of kilometres from the capital, Victoria, and can be reached by bus or taxi.
The beach is small and the sea often laps up against the wall, leaving no space for sunbathing on the sand.
The town's shops and cafes are to be found on the seafront and on one road leading inland.
For a spectacular view of the town either climb the cliffside path on one side of the bay or follow the main road around the opposite side of the bay.
This photograph is taken from cliffside path.
The Xlendi tower is the oldest watchtower in Gozo. Built in 1650, its role was to protect the Xlendi bay. The tower has been recently restored and offer nowadays a good viewpoint.
Xlendi is a little village on the south coast of Gozo, situated at a nice fjord-like bay. Both sides of the bay provide short but very scenic walks over the cliffs with splendid views.
Xlendi is flanked by steep cliff. For some of the best views, climb the stairs up the cliffs to the right.
