Marsalforn Holidays

Marsalforn is a fishing village on the north coast of Gozo island and is a popular sea resort. It is well-liked with Gozitans and with Maltese visitors who tend to spend their weekends and their summers over here. There are a number of restaurants, shops and diving centres in this place. Marsa means port or bay and forn derived from lifurna, is an Arabic word for ship. This fishing hamlet has slowly and steadily grown widely along the rocky bay, and these days a hotel, many apartment blocks, memento shops are more eminent than the few fishing boats.

Marsalforn is Gozo's major seaside town. In the summer, it becomes a full of life, vivacious and active resort. The little and enjoyable sandy bank on the harbour has safe bathing facilities and the rocky coastline towards Qbajjar is ideal and just right for snorkelling. Marsalforn offers a wide range of accommodation from the sea facing apartments to luxury and affordable hotels. This place is very famous for its harbour-side cafes and restaurants, which serve a great variety of fresh fish. This little port is   characterized by a convoy of traditional 'luzzijiet' trawlers and smaller fishing boats. Marsalforn is an excellent choice for a holiday for tourists who are looking for a relaxed atmosphere, even in the height of summer.
