Marsaxlokk Bay, Marsaxlokk

3.8
#2 of 11 in Nature in Island of Malta
Bask in the tranquility of Marsaxlokk Bay, one of the country's best-kept secrets. At the southern tip of the island, the bay is named for the wind that comes from the Sahara desert. The bay is Malta's gateway to North Africa and the place where the Phoenicians established their first trading posts almost 3,000 years ago. Swim or relax on a beach, or visit the fishing village that maintains a traditional lifestyle. Enjoy the authentic atmosphere as you watch the colorful luzzu boats, visit a fish market, or grab a meal at one of the seafood restaurants. Regular bus lines connect the area with the capital city of Valletta. See Marsaxlokk Bay and all Marsaxlokk has to offer by arranging your trip with our Marsaxlokk travel itinerary maker.

    There are markets for souvenirs. Very impressive landscape, beautiful colourful fishermen's boats. There are restaurants to eat fresh fish. Recommended just for a quick visit and relaxing.

    Beautiful port with multiple colorful boats, the "Bay" typical of the island of Malta. There is a market, but it is irrelevant because we went on a Friday and not a Sunday (day of the market of fishermen) for photos and the postcard he must frame your photos because in your back you will attend the sad spectacle of a power station that has nothing of picturesque... and further stand infrastructure of a port that is not picturesque him either.

    Picturesque village facing the sea, much trade, superb views of the Bay, on Sunday there is a good market for those who want to buy good fresh fish.
