Malta's largest fishing village will clearly accommodate a large number of colorful fishing boats.

The sizes range from the large skuna, a very big fishing boat used by professional fishermen, to the medium sized traditional maltese boat luzzu, to kajjik (a little bigger than luzzu) and to the small frejgatina (a very small boat).

All the boats are painted in the traditional colours of yellow, blue and green, many of them have the "eyes of Osiris" on the prow.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
