My Dad’s Marsaxlokk derives its name from the Arabic word marsa, meaning harbour, and Maltese for the south-easterly Mediterranean wind, the Xlokk (Scirocco in Italian). village has certainly changed a lot since the last time I was there but there were still a few familiar things around, in addition to my relatives, to give it that fishing village vibe. I would suggest going on any day other than Sunday until they sort out the situation with the markets, it has grown out of control but there is a plan in place to change that. If you do go be sure to visit the recently renovated Duncan Bar and Guest House
A recent trip to Malta reminded me of just how enchanting this little country is. Plenty to see and do for even the most seasoned traveller and some hidden gems for the foodies too.
