Malta's archetypal fishing village! See the fishermen as they set sail to the horizon and beyond, braving the elements, defying the dangers of the deep blue sea! Watch these worthy seafarers repair their nets that trawl the seabed, providing an essential ingredient for many a favourite Maltese dish, against a backdrop of dgħajjes, brightly coloured fishing boats that dot the Marsaxlokk creek.

Hawkers set-up their stalls every Sunday, selling all sorts of wares from foodstuffs to underwear, from books to garments and clothing. The lively atmosphere at this open air market is a thrill in itself, even if you do not plan to buy anything. As hunger pangs set in, you may wish to give yourself a treat at one of the many, if often somewhat shabby cafeterias; restaurants – fish restaurants especially – are also plentiful. So you may look forward to a fitting conclusion to your sightseeing at Marsaxlokk.

 

There is more to Marsaxlokk than meets the eye. World history was made here when George Bush Sr. and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachiov ended the decades old cold-war and a new dawn for diplomatic ties between the two superpowers ensued, rapidly followed by the fall and dissolution of the Soviet Union.
