In south-west Gozo, you’ll find the tiered architectural treasures of Xlendi snuggled into the cliffside. Zigzag your way down to the shore to find the pretty aquamarine seafront, and dainty little fishing boats. Enjoy a side order of unbeatable bay views, and enjoy fresh fish or even Italian classics.
Towers, tombs and top sights
Various chapels go hand-in-hand with the Punic Tombs, nestled within the valley, and the regiment Xlendi Tower at the mouth of the bay. There’s even a wowing underground mill wedged into the cliffs. If you’re a savvy shopper, delight in the selection of chic stores in Malta’s cool capital, Valletta.
