If you’re looking for the postcard-perfect photo that says ‘Malta’, look no further than the fishing village of Marsaxlokk. With hundreds of traditional coloured boats lining up its promenade, the village provides charm, warmth and a true sense of Mediterranean lifestyle.
Fresh catching fish for your holiday
If fish is your favourite plate, then you will surely feel at home here, for its restaurants, mostly run by locals, gladly buy off the fresh catch of the day serving it just a few hours late on their seaside terraces. If you’re staying at a private accomodation, on Sundays you can buy some fish directly from the fishermen.
Must see places in Malta
The village offers some interesting coastal walks, during which you can discover some endemic flora and fauna, along with interspersed bits and pieces of Maltese history. Two such highlights are Fort Delimara and San Lucian Tower. The former is one of the many costal defences built by the Knights. While this may be one of many, its incredible location built into the cliff face, makes it truly unique. The Tower consists of an ancient polygonal fort that hosts Malta Aquaculture Research Centre.
Don't miss a chance for snorkelling
Marsaxlokk is a great location to enjoy a splash in the sea, with the village offering both rock and sandy areas for sunbathing and a cool dive in the Mediterranean sea. For the more adventerous, a short walk from the village centre, you can get to St Peters’s Pool, an incredibly stunning natural located between Marsaxlokk and Delimara. This inland stretch of water features amazing azure and green colours, perfect for sunbathing and snorkelling.
Historical side of Marsaxlokk
While the village is a perfect option for a tranquil stay in Malta, do not miss out on the beauty Malta has to offer. Centuries old historical buildings, imposing fortifications, museums featuring displays by some of the best European talent, festas and musical festivals, stunning promenades and exuqiste cuisine. All this can be covered in 30 minutes from Marsaxlokk.
