Colourful boats in Marsaxlokk

Marsaxlokk is a picturesque fishing village in the south east of Malta. Visitors come to see the colourful Maltese boats and for the lively Sunday morning market.

The market sells a variety of produce, fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, as well as Maltese handicrafts, leather and crochet goods, lace and tablecloths. Shoes appeared to be a good purchase with a wide choice across several market stalls and modest prices. 

There is a square with pavement cafes and restaurants, as well as restaurants in adjoining streets. Fish is a local speciality on the menu. 

Tourists can often be seen taking photographs of the boats in the harbour, buildings and street scenes.
