Water Body
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.

  • A few days ago suffering in guardian or the Sunday market on Sunday, lost's, even leave the hotel early in the morning walk to the Elmo Valletta bus station 15 minutes. Impossible to enjoy the Sunday market was closed in the early afternoon and told both the straight Valletta to Marsaxlokk transit bus soon! Scenery is drab Gug packed bus getting off cheap. Ridicule the bustling store while edge was forth until the end. But it was hot and drink freshly squeezed orange juice and homemade lemonade honey and cute aprons, bought as a souvenir. There was no audience and enjoy chatting and drinking or blowing sea Vista-like sentence took nearly an hour to be carried from the restaurant is well packed in order, complaining. Guests can go in the morning so if older than 13 when they shut down the seller. I want to get stagger so made the location of both and is a tourist destination in Guardia held up at Malta's revenue, and increasing the satisfaction of tourists.

  • Good for a stroll. Small, but pretty scenery and quiet at this time of year. Had a small but interesting market.  more »
