      Open for swimming, and now it seems also for huge inflatable climbing rafts! Who on earth is allowing this desecration of Xlendi continue, who owns it and has put this in the sea? The place gets more like Benidorm by the day, I truly hope this is only for the Gostra weekend and isn’t going to be a permanent summer fixture. If you haven’t seen it take a look at the monstrosity on the webcam. https://www.skylinewebcams.com/en/webcam/malta/gozo/munxar/gozo-munxar.html

      High levels of raw sewage detected in Xlendi bay!
      The ‘Directorate’s Facebook page’ reveals no further information about he contamination.
      The ‘official website for further information’ has been taken offline.
      For more information before bathing please contact the Health Inspectorate Services (before 2:30pm) on 2133 7333.
      After 2:30pm contact the automated system on 2182 7146 or on mobile for Gozo number +356 7950 9919.
      Good luck and keep safe!
