Marsaxlokk fishing village of Malta
Marsaxlokk is a beautiful and tiny fishing village of Malta, located at the south of the Island is one of the best place to spend 2-3 hours.
The sunny village is perfect to see how the fisherman are working in their colorful boats called luzzus, the mans use those colors to be visible from distance, also has a peculiarity, most of them included the eye of Osiris, symbol of protection that keeps evil spirits in their boats.
I decided to visit this place during the lunch time, some maltese recommend me to eat there Lampuki, their national fish, also you can eat sword fish with salad and french fries, the prices are very cheap, this dish just 8 euros (with white wine), for instance a can of coke 0,80 cents.
There you can visit the Church of St. Mary of Pompei , sadly during my visit was closed so I do not know how the interior is, but from the exterior looks very nice.
On Sundays you can see the fish market where the local people buy their fish for the whole week, but every day you can buy t-shirts and souvenirs in the ”touristic market” of Marsaxlokk
How to go from Valleta to Marsaxlokk in bus?
From the main bus station in Valleta there are some bus that connect this route, numbers 81 and 85 (november 2013), I recommend you to ask in offices because this can change in the future.
