Marsaxlokk

You are here



A sleepy village, Marsaxlokk is a traditional fishing village most visited for it's large Sunday market. Tourists and locals descend on Marsaxlokk to buy everything from fish and capers to souvenirs, clothes and traditional Maltese cakes.

Marsaxlokk Bay itself is a quaint and picturesque setting. Its waters provide a safe harbour for hundreds of luzzus or traditional Maltese fishing boats in the summer. Still somewhat cut-off from the rest of Malta, Marsaxlokk has escaped mass development for the tourist trade and retains a traditional Maltese village atmosphere at its heart.
