Marsaxlokk (pronounced Mar sa shlock) is a small picturesque village in the south eastern coast of Malta. It has a population of c.a. 3,500 people and is referred to as the fishing village in Malta. Marsaxlokk is located around a natural harbor which is the second largest natural harbour on the islands. This natural shelter is home to the traditional Maltese fishing boats, the colourful Luzzus. These traditional Maltese fishing boats are used by fishermen to capture lampuki amongst others, a popular Mediterranean fish mostly caught between August and December. A luzzu will have a mythical eye of Osiris painted on both sides of the prow. The painted eyes on these luzzus are believed to protect the boats from evil. These boats are thought to have been used by Maltese sailors since Phoenician times 800 BC.
Every Sunday morning, Marsaxlokk is host of the biggest fish market in Malta. Stalls are erected all around the quayside and fishermen sell their catch. One can find a display of all the different types of fish. This market has become so popular among tourists and locals that it has been extended along all the inner harbour and apart from fish one finds clothes, shoes, food, antiques, books and souvenirs.
From its North African and Arabic influences (listen carefully to the local language) to the Sicilian-inspired cuisine, Malta is a microcosm of the Mediterranean. Few European countries have such concentrated history, architecture and, yes, beaches in so tiny an area.
There’s been an eclectic mix of influences and a roll-call of rulers over the centuries, but be in no doubt: Malta is not just a notional outpost of Italy or a relic of colonial Britain. This island nation (all 316 sq km of it, comprising the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino) has a quirky character all of its own. From prehistoric temples, to the baroque architecture of Valletta, feasts of rabbit to festas of noisy fireworks, to colourful fishing boats, this nation has loads of unique charm.
Getting around Malta is relatively easy and cheap. Crossing the main island, Malta, by car from North to South is the longest possible journey one can take – and this only takes around 1 hour by car! Driving in Malta is on the left hand side of the road, like the United Kingdom.
Those visitors who prefer not to rent a car can use the network of public buses which is cheap and efficient. The main terminus is in Valletta, and in addition there are direct buses to the most popular towns, beaches and cities from Sliema, Bugibba, Mosta, Rabat, Cirkewwa and Marsaxlokk.
Malta enjoys a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and hot summers, so it is always a good time of year to visit Malta!
