Mġarr ix-Xini (or L-Imġarr ix-Xini), is a bay close to Sannat on the Maltese island of Gozo. It lies in a gorge to the west of Mġarr Harbour, accessible from Sannat as well as the nearby village of Xewkija.
Nowadays, this secluded spot is popular for swimming and diving. On 12 November 1999, the former Gozo ferry MV Xlendi was purposely sunk to create an artificial reef and dive site. However, the ship rolled over while sinking and it ended up upside down. It may be unsafe for inexperienced divers.
