Malta’s beloved fishing village may be small but packs a punch with its beautiful views and history waiting to be uncovered. Marsaxlokk has become a popular stop when visiting this small and alluring country, and thanks to its kind locals, colorful boats and delicious seafood, it’s easy to see why.

  1. The luzzu docked on the shore makes the already blue waters explode with color.
  2. Open on a Sunday, the fish market is a must-do. Sample fish right from the sea!
  3. Xrobb l-Għaġin Nature Park is 155,000 square kilometers of unspoiled nature home to 4,200 species of wildlife that will have you feeling one with Mother Nature.
  4. You can dine on the freshest Aljotta, a fish soup infused with tomato and mint flavors.
  5. Local art can be found everywhere—from the doors to its hidden alleyways.
  6. The weather is almost always perfect with 3,000 hours of sunshine per year.
  7. No matter where your head turns, you’re bound to get gorgeous snapshots of the inviting Mediterranean.
  8. Though a popular fishing village to tourists, you still get the real feel of Malta living amongst the locals.
  9. Relaxing the day away is a breeze at St. Peter’s Pool, a natural pool with crystal clear aqua waters.
  10. Saying the name of the village is fun.
