Dwejra Bay

Dwejra is perhaps the archipelago’s most spectacular natural landmark. Here, geology, time and sea have worked together to produce some of the most remarkable scenery on the Islands. The place where up to recently stood the Azure Window, the Inland Sea, Fungus Rock, sheer cliffs and a rocky coastline.

All the surrounding habitat is a blend of geology, fauna, habitats, shoreline seascapes, archaeology, flora and history. The other natural landmark here is the legendary Fungus Rock or, as it is locally known, “Il-Ġebla tal-Ġeneral”, General’s Rock. Due to being protected from the open waters, this is an ideal location to spend the night during a Multi-day yacht charter or Private boat hire in Malta.

Xlendi Bay

The delightful sea inlet, known as Xlendi Bay, lies at the end of a deep, lush ravine which was once a river bed.

Being on the furthest point in Gozo, reaching this point is only possible when taking an overnight boat charter since arriving to this destination and back to port in 1 day is practically impossible due to the distance. On the other hand it is surely a place to visit when circumnavigating Gozo on a Multi-day skippered or bareboat yacht Charter.
