Why would one visit Marsaxlokk? What can one see in Marsaxlokk?
That beautiful church
The Church of Our Lady of Pompeii lives up to her name. Stunning, and a piece of history trapped in time.
You can spend a night in a Lighthouse
If you're the type that likes to spend a weekend in a farmhouse to disconnect and recharge, you'll love this place. An old British lighthouse repurposed into 2 different apartments. The inside is simple, clean and well-maintained, and there are plenty of beautiful beaches and walking trails to keep yourself occupied and retune with nature. Best of all? It's run by Din l-Art Helwa, and money from renting the place goes into environmental restoration projects
The Sunday fish market
Nothing tastes better during a hot summer than a cold beer and a grilled fish. The Marsaxlokk fish market is going to hit the spot for anyone looking for something tasty to throw on a barbeque.
Hidden swimming pools
Most people know about the beautiful St.Peters Pool, but did you know that the whole Delimara area is full of small secret pools waiting to be explored? If you and your friends want to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience, you can book a private boat from the Marsaxlokk Waterpolo Club to sail out to one of these uncovered gems. Set up a pick-up and drop-off time that works for you and have fun swimming in solitude.
Awesome street art
Really these are some of the most Instagrammed walls in the country. And who can blame them? The locals are becoming experts at transforming their quiet village into a living art piece.
Of course we have to mention the boats
If we didn't bring up the gorgeous painted luzzu we're pretty sure we'd be arrested.
This untouched piece of land hosts some of the most beautiful natural scenery you'll find in Malta. Besides the garigue landscape and blue sea, you'll also find the ruins of a megalithic temple, and a hostel set up to encourage sustainable development and eco-living.
An incredible seafood dinner at The Marsaxlokk Water Polo Club
Tranquility, elegance, attention to detail, and a whole ocean's worth of flavour.
