History of Marsaxlokk

What to do?

  • Visit the Parish church which is dedicated to the Madonna of Pompeii. This was built in 1897 and is situated in the main square. It has a beautiful interior with magnificent paintings by Maltese artist Giuseppe Cali.
  • If you are holidaying in Malta in the first week of July, you should make it point not to miss the local village feast.
  • Take a stroll along the Harbour. Observe local fishermen and watch out for the colourful ‘luzzu’ (the traditional Maltese boat).
  • Go shop from the local open market which takes place every day. You can find souvenir stalls and other local products like honey and jam. On Sunday the market gets bigger and fishermen come to show off their catch.
  • Go swimming! There are amazing swimming spots in the area. Check out St Peter’s Pool or Kalanka Bay. They are not easily accessible, but from the town centre, they are easily reached by motorbike or even a nice walk.
  • Visit a Fort. Marsaxlokk boasts interesting places like Fort St Lucian, Fort Tas-Silg and Fort Delimara.
  • Hike through the village periphery. There’s a good track between Marsascala and Marsaxlokk. An ideal activity for winter.
