Marsaxlokk Fishing Village

Marsaxlokk Fishing Village

Marsaxlokk is the best known fishing-village in Malta. It lies on a vast bay which is surrounded by two tongues, Delimara Point in the south-east and Benghisa Point in the south-west (behind Birzebbuga).

Marsaxlokk is a nice excursion-destination. The daily market takes place from 9:00am to 4:00pm. However, during the week the market is quite small and fewer people are there. On the weekend it grows to a huge event and the market spans all over the promenade. On Sunday it’s the biggest and the whole promenade is full of people.

The bay of Marsaxlokk is nice and filled with traditional boats, so called Luzzu- or Dghajjes-boats. The city has the biggest fishing-fleet in Malta.
Marsaxlokk is an excursion-destination - especially the market entices many tourists. The village has no hotels and only few other accommodations. Around the centre are some nice restaurants which offer fish and Maltese-specialities. Recommended and a must here are the sea food and fish, because they are very, very fresh here. That’s all about Marsaxlokk.

Cospicua (Bormla)

Cospicua (Bormla) lies in front of the two peninsulas: Vittoriosa (Birgu) and Senglea (L’Isla). The city is the consequence of the overpopulation of the two peninsulas, Vittoriosa and Senglea. It was designed in 1717 and is surrounded by two fortifications. The outer one is known as the Cottonera Lines and the inner as the Margerita Lines.

Paceville

Paceville is the entertainment centre in Malta! There you can find bars, discos, cafes, cinema, shopping complexes/shopping malls(clothing, shoes, books, watches, jewellery, well, just everything), souvenir shops, casinos, nightclubs, bowling, games arcades, restaurants(Maltese, English, Italian, Turkish, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Korean, etc.), hotels, the Hilton tower(also known as Portomaso Tower), supermarkets, a small beach, a yacht-harbour, and much more. There is also a quite large shopping complex, known as Bay-Street Complex. Spread on four floors, you can find whatever you need.

Sights in Vittoriosa (Birgu)

There is so much to see in Vittoriosa - the whole city is an open-air museum. The city is surrounded by an incredible flair of history, culture and modernity. The structure of the city equals that of a triangle. On the side facing to the inland there is a big city-wall with two gates. The most interesting way to enter the city is through the Couvre Porte. The side directed to the harbor entrance is also fortified. On the fortification, high above the sea, there is a nice promenade. From there you have a nice view on Valletta, the harbor gate and Kalkara. On the tip of the city is the Fort St. Angelo. The fort is stunning. The last side of the triangle, the side facing the Dockyard Creek/Senglea, has no fortification. There you can find the Casino de Venezia, Maritime Museum, St. Lawrence Church and a luxury hotel. In the city itself something is awaiting you around every corner. In the centre lies the Victory-Square - the square got his name after the Great Siege 1565 of the Turkish. It is said that the Grandmaster La Vallette was wounded during the siege on a fight at the fortification ’Poste de Castille’. The Turkish were already inside the city when the Grandmaster counterattacked them together with his personal body-guards.
