Stopped here as part of the Malta sightseeing south tour. Pleasent little fishing village with a small market on a Saturday and plenty of restaurants serving lots of different dishes that everyone can enjoy.

Tipical fishing harbour full of fishing boat and many small restaurants with very fresh seafood supplied by the local fishermen. A very beatiful church also open for visiting. Easy access even using the bus service with busses departing from Valetta Terminal bus.

Nice place however on the postcards and photos from guidebooks looks much better. Still worth seeing. It was suprisingly empty.

Hi Bobbles1 Its only a small town and once the market has closed and the tourists have gone, I think it would be very quiet! Apart from the restaurants and walking around the bay, there doesn't appear to be much else to do... More
