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 20 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 reef is also used for dive training as the bay is sheltered and there are no currents. Beware of the boat traffic in and out of Xlendi Bay.

★★★☆☆ After come out of tunnel we continue out on reef to 30m, and even turn around to the lighthouse. A lot to see, many groupers, small morays and fishes. Not bad dive.

★★☆☆☆ I've not spotted anything that interesting on the reef.
