"Marsaxlokk..a delusion" Malta Tourist Trap Tip by Alex_71

Malta Tourist Traps: 7 reviews and 3 photos

I’m not sure if consider Marsaxlokk a “tourist trap” or not. For sure I have seen the beautiful bay full of boats for fishing. I have seen some restaurants exactly on the bay too. I have seen also the market that is right on the bay. Everything can seem like in the postcards or like it’s written in the tourist guides but…The market sell just souvenirs that you can find everywhere on Malta and some “tovaglie” that are really nothing special. The restaurants, I don’t know if they are good or not ‘couse I haven’t tried them. The bay is for sure good for make some pictures but you have to pay attention at the big factories you can see on the back that (that’s my opinion) give at the area really a bad atmosphere. I was at Marsaxlokk at the late morning so the temperature was really warm and it doesn’t give you the change to go around and visit the town. For what I saw of the town, anyway, everything was closed and it doesn’t give me the idea of anything special. So at the end, if I have to choose if going in Marsaxlokk again, I’d decide to not go. I suggest to go there just if you have visited everything else into the isle

Unique Suggestions: Go to Marsaxlokk if you have visited everything else in Malta...and maybe the restaurants are good and with freh fish.
