Xgħajra (Maltese: Ix-Xgħajra) is a small village in the South Eastern Region of Malta. It is located on the coast, about halfway between Valletta and Marsaskala. Its local football club is known as the Xghajra Tornadoes F.C. Contrary to popular belief, it has no connection to the Gozitan village known as Xagħra. Its population stood at 1732 in March 2014.[1]
