Close by to Il-Munxar village, is Xlendi Bay, a popular tourist resort engulfed in a fjord like inlet amongst high cliffs. Xlendi bay is a small fishing village, but is also an ideal bathing and diving resort especially in summer.
The water is great for swimming and the most attractive thing is the proximity to the edge of the restaurants. You can actually jump from the chair into the clear water.

Hi Daniel. Through your high quality photos Malta appears to be a very photogenic country with plenty of sunshine and lively colours.Lovely light and excellent POV.So is that what is done- jumping into the water to escape paying the bill? Regards and a happy weekend. Klaudio.

namaste, a very nice scene here. Like the emerald green water. The boats are looking nice in the crystal clear layer of water. Excellent township beside it. Like the cliff at background. A very well presented shot. Tfs.

magnificent view of the Xlendi bay(I was across the bay)
Your shot shows excellently beauty of this bay and the little town around it.I like your composition and so lovely,vivid color you were able to bring out.
You´re right about the clarity of the water-amazing for swimming or diving.

really enjoying this series from Malta and Gozo. I visited such a long time ago that these little resorts did not exist on this little island. Your POV is superb here and it looks idyllic and inviting. So much so that I am contemplating a re-visit. Excellent!
Have a great weekend - regards Brian.

I think tourism has grown tremendously in Malta in the 16 years since I was there. This place probably didn't exist then. I wouldn't immediately think of these buildings as Maltese, but the view is very nice and the colours are fabulous.

a Malta hai fatto un ottimo lavoro e sei riuscito a scattare una bella serie di foto fantastiche.
Sarà l'effetto dei colori caldi che l'isola offre, sarà perchè la sua architettura si presta ad essere ripresa e si integra molto con il paesaggio, ma anche in questa, nella quale di antico non c'è nulla se non le rocce che circondano gli edifici, sei riuscito a creare una piacevole composizione nella quale il colore domina incontrastato e gli elementi di dispongono in maniera perfetta.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

splendida vista, la luce è molto bella e i leggeri riflessi sull'acqua gli danno un piacevole colore.

Good observed and captured this -mostprobably- human made bay in Malta. Never seen a bay as if drawn with a ruler, in square format.
Good pov and good layout.
TFS and have a nice weekend

Vraiment des couleurs de paradis pour les teintes de l'eau de ce bassin.L'ensemble est bien équilibré par une bonne lumière chaude qui éclaire ces architectures.

A breath taking coastal view, an image crammed pack full of detail makes you want to explore deeper into the scene filled mostly by the earthy tone but the intense turquoise green water splits and creates such a striking contrast. I love the perspective, depth and clarity beautified by the brilliant blue sky and your works it spot on. Excellent shot, Congrats

Excellent photo, beautiful view of a beautiful and colorful place, great light and composition
saxo042 (37890) 2013-09-14 11:29
A well protected basin, inside the attractive cityscape. The water provides a very good colour to the scene, which is a good harmony with the blue colour of the sky.

une superbe vue en plongée sur cette baie avec une eau claire et de belle couleur et avec tous ces petits bateaux qui naviguent sur l'eau
adramad (46034) 2013-09-15 11:59
Beautiful bay, great coat for boats, with that square so closed, the population surrounding it is ideal, fantastic that greenish water.
Beautiful colorful natural.
Magnificent both luminosity, as sharpness.
Very well done.
I wish you a happy start to the week.
macjake (68510) 2013-09-16 6:11
well, Mariusz will be very pleased with this one!
He loves postcard shots, and this has postcard written all over it.
Personally, i love postcards, and i don't know why so many people don't like them! they often have the best or most pleasant pov's.
just like this shot, its so easy on the eyes. you couldn't have chosen a better viewpoint.
and its nice to see the boat on the bottom right tucked in so neatly.

Love the cyan colour of the Mediterranean sea here and the high vantage point. Good sharpness and saturation. The rugged natural beauty of the hillside contrasts starkly against the urban backdrop along the bay. Tfs!
