Malta

Some views of Malta, a small island escape of ours for many years and still enjoy it’s many attractions and hospitable people. Lots of sunshine, English spoken freely, good food and they drive on the left (now and then)! Whats not to like?

Marsaxlokk is a traditional fishing village in the South Eastern Region of Malta, with a population of 3,534 as of March 2014. The village’s name comes from marsa, which means “port” and xlokk. I always enjoy going here and visit the fish market, or just sit, enjoy a meal or just a coffee and watch the world go by.

 

Marsaxlokk Sunday Market – not to be missed!

Evening at Wied il-Ghajn, Marsascala, Malta

A popular town in southern Malta where the Maltese like to relax at weekends which can make it quite busy. A stroll around the harbour sees many families having barbecues at the waters edge and enjoying the outdoor life which is the Maltese way.

Seen in Mdina, known as the “Silent City”, a fortified city in the Northern Region of Malta, which served as the island’s capital from antiquity to the medieval period. It is closed to all motor traffic except for emergency vehicles and residents. This is an example of many windows in Malta and this image is enlightened by the shadows given by the sun around mid day.

This is the Azure Window in Gozo as I saw it in 2016. Unfortunately no more! It collapsed in March 2017 after storms and heavy seas.
