The bay is very pretty with the colourful Luzzu boats. We didn't go on a Sunday, so we didin't visit the fishmarket. But there was still a small market along the water selling the usual range of souvenirs. For the rest it was very quiet and paceful, just as we like it. We arrived around 10 am when the fishermen were cleaning up their boats and drying their fishnets. After a walk around the bay and taking many pictures, we picked a restaurant for a nice seafood lunch.

You can get to Marsaxlokk easily from Valletta by bus.

We came here after visiting the temple complex at Tarxien as we had been told that there is a good market here. If you like miles of pound shop rubbish on hot crowded stalls then it is for you. Need I say more? Having been to this pretty village many years ago before the advent of the market we were very disappointed.

Nice big market plenty of fresh veg / fish / sweets. Stick with the local stalls they are by far the best.

This bustling, vibrant market is an easy half day trip from Sliema/Valetta.
It is well serviced by public transport.
We enjoyed walking around the fish market and there are plenty of decently priced restaurants along the waterfront that seemed happy to allow us to settle in and enjoy people watching and the view.
