"Harbour and Luzzu boats" Top 5 Page for this destination Marsaxlokk Favorite Tip by HORSCHECK
Marsaxlokk Favorites: 23 reviews and 32 photos
Favorite thing: Marsaxlokk is an old Maltese fishing village and therefore has a large harbour area with many fishing boats. It is especially popular for the traditional fishing boats called Luzzu.
They are usually painted in bright colours like red, blue, yellow and green and are therefore a popular photo motif.
The boat bow is normally decorated with a pair of eyes, which symbolise vigilance to protect the fishermen against the dangers of the sea. The luzzu boats often have Christian names.
