Bask in the tranquility of Marsaxlokk Bay, one of the country's best-kept secrets. At the southern tip of the island, the bay is named for the wind that comes from the Sahara desert. The bay is Malta's gateway to North Africa and the place where the Phoenicians established their first trading posts almost 3,000 years ago. Swim or relax on a beach, or visit the fishing village that maintains a traditional lifestyle. Enjoy the authentic atmosphere as you watch the colorful luzzu boats, visit a fish market, or grab a meal at one of the seafood restaurants. Regular bus lines connect the area with the capital city of Valletta.
