Marsascala – A Maltese Seaside locality


A postcard-pretty harbour of Marsaskala witnessed the last Turkish assault on Malta in 1614.  Although the troops landed they were beaten back while heading inland and the knights built a mighty fort on the nearby headland to deter and future visit.

Today, a  tourist infrastructure is developing quilckly and Marsaskala welcomes visitors with open arms.  The village of Marsaskala has an agreeable setting by the water’s edge with plenty of cafes and good seafood restaruants overlooking the bay and its pastel-coloured boats.  In recent years the nightlife scene has become increasingly popular with vistors and Maltese alike.  Between them, the bars, discos and restaurants complex appeal across the age range.

The Maltese seaside village – Marsaskala

Nearby beach is St. Thomas Bay, 1 km (0.5) miles to the south, has sandy banks and shallow water.  In summer it can seem too busy, but it is easy to escape the crowds by heading south along the coast towards Delimara Point.  The road to St.Thomas from Marsaskala passes Mamo Tower, a 17th-century tower with an teresting cruciform design and just one room with a vaulted roof.

The colourful Marsaxlokk fishing village

For local colour, nothing beats the Marsaxlokk fish market in the South, a pretty village close by to Marsaskala,  Here you’ll find wonderful and exotic but also very edible and tasty fish on display.  An early start is recommended if you want to see the best of the catch.  During the week you will also find other items that are associated with a flea market.  Sundays – fish market only

So if you happen to book a holiday vacation to Malta, the best is in the weekends.
