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.

  • Went on Friday, but no such stalls as the hustle and bustle of the market is to go on Sunday. Parking is not so basic is parked. Lots of colourful boats look like in the guide book.

  • I like it! We were late January there, it's very romantic and I think in March, it would be awesome! Us was without Sun a bit too cold outside to sit!

  • I liked it, the atmosphere of the place, views, people. Though in the season probably doesn't look as well due to the piston as there may reign. We were at the turn of January and February, and people there were quite a few:)
