Marsaxlokk Fishing Harbour is located on the southeastern end of the main island of Malta. It is home to the largest Maltese fishing boats in the Republic of Malta. These colourfully painted boats are known as luzzus with painted eyes on the bows to protect the fishermen against the evil spirits. Most of the boats are brightly and beautifully painted in yellow, blue and red colours.
The quay of the harbour is dotted with numerous inexpensive cafés and seafood restaurants. Take the opportunity to chill out at the cafés and restaurants when you are there although it can be very hot during the summer months.
Open-air markets are held at the harbour daily in the morning. Most of the stores deal in clothings and textiles, food and drinks such as wines, household consumer items and souvenirs. Fish market complete with a flea market is held every Sunday morning at the harbour. A visit to Marsaxlokk is highly recommended for those who have the time to spare while vacationing on the main island of Malta!
