Going South – Discovering Delimara and Marsaxlokk

One of Malta’s best kept secrets is the Delimara Peninsula, just off the picturesque fishermen’s village of Marsaxlokk.

The area is off any large tourist resort and away from the hustle and bustle of the busy Sliema and St. Julian’s area. It is best to reach by car or by bicycle, however, if you prefer hiking, a bus stops just in the center of Marsaxlokk, the ideal spot to start and end your hike.

On the Delimara peninsula there are a number of good swimming spots along the coast; hard-to find, but worth seeking out is a natural lido called Peter’s Pool. This is the perfect spot to lazy around and enjoy the sun or take a refreshing dive in the clear blue waters.

Back to Marsaxlokk, it is a must to take some photos of the lovely traditional Maltese boats (Dghajsa) and stop for a snack or lunch at one of the many Mediterranean and fish restaurants on the promenade.
