The fishing village of Marsalforn is the most popular resort on the island of Gozo, with something for everyone, a beach to relax and ample opportunites for sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling. During the Summer months the village attracts not only tourists on holiday, but also many Gozitans and Maltese who seek this village to relax and unwind.
A popular sight at Marsalforn are the colourful Maltese fishing boats scattered around the bay. The local fisherman are very proud of their boats and you can always find one at the harbour being refurbished or repainted.
The promenade winds its way all around the bay, where until late in the evening people stroll to take in the sights and wonderful views of the sunset. The air is fresh and it is the perfect way to end a hot Summer’s day. The bay is also well equipped with restaurants featuring local cuisine at its very best. Most venues are open air and perfect to enjoy the fresh breeze in the evening whilst sipping a glass of white wine.
On a typical warm Summer evening, take a walk from Marsalforn Bay around the promenade to Xwejni Bay, heading towards Wied il-Ghasri, where along the way you will be able to see scores of salt pans that have been dug out of the soft limestone and used for harvesting sea salt as part of a centuries-old Gozitan tradition.
