We hiked around the coast from the Three Cities (the prettiest bit is definitely between Marsaskala and Marksalox) to this bay full of the traditional fishing boats. But you do need to close your eyes to the huge commercial port on one side of the entrance and the concrete works on the other. To get the best picture you need... 更多
Famous for being the bay where the 40,000 strong Turkish Ottoman force landed in the great siege of 1565. Not so pretty as some other bays the place is now modernly famous for it's massive Sunday market. Items can be bought just as cheaply elsewhere but we go along anyway for the experience. Most restaurants will not serve you a... 更多
A village by the sea well known for the colurful boats and houses. It is impressive though I was expecting it more picturesque and less turistic. On a sunny day is worth the visit.
Stopped at Marsaxlokk for lunch on a dull November day and was delighted to find the harbour full of brightly-coloured fishing boats, bobbing up and down in the swell, a delightful splash of colour against the grey skyline. We walked along the harbour's edge, passing lots of typical outdoor seaside cafes & restaurant. Seafood is the predominant menu component, all... 更多
Together with my partner we visited Marsaxlokk twice during our holiday. We went on a Sunday and the market, of which there were countless stalls, was packed and akin to being amid a football crowd. On the other visit, midweek, it was far less so and with much fewer stalls. Sunday has the fresh fish and fruit market stalls. Here... 更多
We went here very excited about the market, after a bumpy bus ride there we found the village to be quite deserted. There were a few stall, maybe about 4, all selling very cheap tourist stuff. There were some small fish restaurants which we ate at, amazing fresh fish, made the trip worth it. We did go out of season... 更多
The bay is really beautiful and you will find many boats engaged with the fishing activities. Have many small and big restaurants. Also have small shopping stores from which souvenirs etc. can be purchased.
Nice village and seafront, with pretty fishing boats. We boarded a little boat to tour the harbour and sea for half an hour, very nice. Many restaurants. Good tourist information office.
We topped here on the open top bus tour and planned on spending 30 mins here. 2 hours later we were done.The market was good, your standard market with a lot of tat but also some good touristy items and clothes. We went on a Sunday when its sold as a fish market, its really not its a normal market... 更多
