A trip to Marsaxlokk – Malta

Last Sunday we went to Malta’s largest fishing village Marsaxlokk. I enjoy walking around here, mainly because of all the colorful fishing boats that are seen in the harbor but also because of its special atmosphere.Even the fishing nets are colorful.…and so are the benches.

Some snapshots!On Sundays, many Maltese visit the fish market to buy from the morning’s catch and it’s a popular location among locals for Sunday lunch. We neither bought any fish nor ate lunch but it was well worth a visit!

A day in Marsaxlokk

Last Sunday we went to Malta’s largest fishing village Marsaxlokk.

Sundays are most crowded when many people flock to the Sunday market where street hawkers set up their stalls selling souvenirs, clothes and all kinds of things. And of course they sell lots of fresh fish.

But we were not here mainly for the market but for the colorful boats……and the genuine and lovely atmosphere among the locals.

We also found a dog friendly beach but it was quite small and rocky. Fanny just relaxed and enjoyed being in a new place while she was curiously looking at what happened in the harbor among the colorful boats.Before heading back home we stopped at Ta Qali Park to let Fanny have fun and run freely. Lucky me found spring’s first Poppy, my favorite and no, I didn’t pick it but needed a helping hand because of the wind.

img_7516-0Igår tog vi bilen och åkte till den lilla fiskebyn Marsaxlokk som ligger på den sydöstra delen av Malta. Här tas större delen av Maltas fiskfångst upp och på söndagar är det marknad då det säljs allt från nyfångad fisk, frukt och grönsaker till skor, kläder och tingeltangel.

Nu ville jag helst fotografera de traditionella Luzzubåtarna som tillsammans med större fiskebåtar ligger i hamnen, varav här är en av många och som alltid karaktäriseras av att de går i färg.
