Marsaxlokk is a traditional fishing village located in the southeastern part of the island of Malta.
The sea is just a stone’s throw away from the South Wind Guesthouse. The Malta International Airport is just a ten-minute car ride away, whereas Malta’s capital, Valletta, is 20 minutes away. Bus stations that are a short walking distance from the guesthouse connect the village to the rest of the island within minutes.
The village itself not only attracts tourists at present, but it has a remarkable history of visitors over the years, be it the Phoenicians, Carthaginians or the Romans. Here, we have a look at what makes its so attractive.
