It's a little village with a big hype on sundays when the fish market has place. The market is overcrowded even it is winter, the fish and fruit stands are interesting for a quick visit, the other cheap bazaar things doesn't deserve even a word....More

Excellent place for lunch. Do not expect a lot from the local Sunday Fish market, because fish is less than 10 percent of the market (the rest is souvenirs and cheap clothing). However for any other day the place is really worth visiting for lunch...More

It's a cute bay. Nothing special. The fishermen have fun colorful boats. It will be very busy during tourist season. But I imagine that it's pleasant when there are fewer people around. I'd return and try it again during mealtime.

Worth going just to see the very colourful fishing boats, a nice place not too commercialised. If you want the best fresh fish meal, visit Philippe´s, excellent!

The ugly power station on one end of the bay and huge cranes on the other! However in the middle is this tranquil bay with brightly painted local fishing boats with ‘eyes’.’

It's a lovely place, with colorful boats, amazing water and a lot of restaurants serving fresh fish. I recommend a tour with a boat and, definitely, having the lunch in one of the restaurants on the seashore.

We went to Marsaxlokk to visit the Sunday fishing market. Setting foot at the village square felt like a trip back in time. Everything seemed so tranquil and relaxing. The bay itself is spectacular. The Sunday market is interesting at its fish part. We really...More
