- Malta’s traditional fishing village -
About a half hour bus ride from Valletta is Marsaxlokk, a beautiful fishing village that is famous for it’s Sunday Fish Market and colourful luzzu boats. This is the perfect destination for a day trip to explore the southern shores of Malta and feast on fresh seafood. Along the harbour are stalls offering souvenirs and local produce, and it’s a lovely way to experience everyday Maltese life. There are also plenty of restaurants offering authentic Maltese food so make sure to stay for lunch or dinner once you’re there.
St Peter’s Pool
A beautiful natural pool carved into the Maltese coast can be reached in 30 minutes if you’re willing to hike from the fishing harbour, or just a short drive away by taxi. We personally opted for the hike as we wanted to see the views of Marsaxlokk village from above and experience a different side of the city. St Peter’s Pool is a lovely spot for swimming and sunbathing, and the blue waters makes the spot extra picturesque. Definitely not a place to miss if you’re in Marsaxlokk!
