      What is wrong with the water, is it full of fuel by any chance? I ask only because of the ridiculous amount of boats that are moored in the bay these days. Last weekend I counted over 55 boats (at least two groups were tied four abreast) surely there should be a limit on how many visitors can park overnight in the bay.

      The local people with boat hire businesses or fishermen (are there any left now?) should be the only ones who can moor here, anyone else should have to park outside the bay or go home at sunset.

      It makes Xlendi look a mess and little more than a cheap marina when so many vessels are there. I suppose it’s just another nail in the coffin of a once beautiful, peaceful bay that has now been taken over by never ending bars and restaurants and their plastic partition walls. Such a shame yet another place has been ruined by greed and tourism.
