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
