Highlights of this tour
- Villages of Zurrieq and Qrendi
Your private guide will meet you at your accommodation or at the cruise port, with private adapted transport. She will be waiting for you with a sign with your name on it. Together you will discover the southern villages of Malta, with the typical Maltese village plazas, shopping streets, and winding alleys.
The villages you are going to visit are Zurrieq and Qrendi. In these places, fishermen go out before dawn in their fishing boats to market fresh fish in the morning. When you are early, you will often see fishermen doing maintenance on their Luzzu. Luzzus are the traditional Maltese fishing boats usually painted in very bright colors. Along the boulevard, there are many options to try the tastiest fresh fish.
Today you will also visit the main fishing village of Malta, which is Marsaxlokk. This used to be the site of the first Turkish landing during the Great Siege of 1565. Here you see the ‘luzzus’ painted in the traditional reds, blues, and yellows that add color to this peaceful bay. Marsaxlokk consists of an elongated fishing port full of characteristic fishing boats, which makes photographers and painters to be heavily inspired by this site. The way the fishing boats are scattered through the water makes it a colorful whole. After some free time to explore the local market stalls, your guide brings you back to the cruise port or your accommodation again.
