This is not Xlendi Bay. It was captioned wrongly. This is the inland sea at Dwejra. Proceed through the natural rock tunnel to reach the open sea and the Dwejra Window as if humans had actually hewn a frame out of the rocks although it is entirely natural. In the Dwejra locality there is a sizeable rock which used to be reached by a woven straw basket on a rope pulley and where at the order of the Grandmaster of the Knights of Malta, labourers would traverse to and fro collecting a type of mushroom which was meant to have magic curative powers – which the Grandmaster had picked for his sole use (naturally!).
I beg to differ.
This (very old) postcard is captioned correctly.
It is within Xlendi Bay.
The grotto seen here, has no access to the sea, as at the Dwejra inland lake.
The staircase footpath on the cliff face and the quay is still there today. The lowly fisherman`s boathouse has been replaced by a row of 8 storey hotels.
Google “Xlendi Bay” and study the photos.
