Fun Sunday Market

Went to the Sunday market. Fun walking around . The fruit was fantastic. Especially the strawberries which were huge and sweet. Beautiful bay.

This is a lovely place. Restaurants all the way around the harbour and you sit right at the harbour side looking at the pretty boats and eating great fish selection. (Ignore the petrol refinery on the other side of the bay - just make sure you are facing the sea and the boats!!)

My wife and I stayed for two nights at this smart, modern, clean and efficiently run Guest House. The establishment is very professionally run by pleasant and obliging staff. Could only give it praise but if we could comment we would suggest a better TV system, otherwise we were very pleased and we will definitely return.

Great place to take pictures of the colorful boats, eat fresh fish right on the harbor and shop for local foods and handmade items (plus your regular souvenirs). Relaxing, Quaint and great for lunch.

A lovely place to take lunch at one of the many harbour front restaurants or to stay a few nights. Picturesque harbour side with a market most days and a big market including fish on a Sunday.

What a beautiful little bay well worth a visit. The bay is dotted with traditional Maltese fishing boats. You can take a trip in a boat around the bay for a few euros. The bay is lined with various restaurants and fish is a must it is all obviously caught locally and couldn't be fresher. Would recommend the swordfish.

Perfect end to the day , head down the the wharf, gaze into the harbour and all those brightly coloured luzzu ( fishing craft) . Take your time and enjoy a meal at one of themany fish bars surrounding the bay
