Xlendi Reef dive site is located in the middle of Xlendi Bay in southwest Gozo. The inner reef goes around the headland with maximum depth of 12 metres, while the outer reef extends underwater from the headland. Part of the outer reef forms a pinnacle, which reaches up almost to the surface, while maximum depth is around 25 metres. The base of the reef is covered with large boulders and Posidonia seagrass. There is usually lots of marine life around the reef. Further away from the shore the seabed deepens quite quickly and goes down well beyond 60 m.
Xlendi Reef is suitable for all levels of divers. The shallow reef is also good for diving courses as the bay is sheltered and there are no currents. The deeper part of the reef is used for technical dive training. While diving in Xlendi Bay area, beware of the boat traffic in and out of the bay.
Xlendi Reef can be dived together with nearby Xlendi Tunnel cave.
