Marsalforn is in Reality the Best Holiday Resort in Gozo.
Marsalforn Gozo, paradise for children and senior citizens
All visitors to Gozo go down to Marsalforn at one time or another.
Why? It is beautiful and easily reachable, just 3 kms from Victoria.
There are buses every 40 minutes from Victoria. Some people even make it on foot in half an hour or so, but this is not recommended since there are no side- walks and many cars using the road at all times.
Besides it will be quite hot walking if it is a sunny day.
Say you'll be staying at a Hotel or in a self-catering apartment. How would you spend your day?
You would probably wake up for an early morning swim. This is out of this world. The sea is warm all summer long 26 degrees so there is no problem there. In the morning the water is crystal clear, not just clean but pure. You can see all the way to the bottom covered with shingle, golden sand or pebbles.
Marsalforn is very very quiet up to 11 o'clock in the morning. It is heaven. People do not appear until this time. After the morning swim and breakfast the ideal thing to do is to sit in the shade reading or at the laptop, that is if you do not have anything better to do, such as going for a visit to the Megalithic Temples or a Museum in the Citadel in Victoria.
You can go fishing, angling that is for mullet, bream or bopes. Be sure to wear a wide straw-hat and sun-glasses as a protection against the sun. You can bait your hooks with Bread bait. This is just a piece of bread moistened with tap water, mixed with a small amount of strong cheese odour.
You'll probably catch some mullet and bopes since bream are more smart. It is best to return the fishes to the sea if they are not big enough to eat
Painted Comber (burqax in Maltese)
You can go snorkelling. When I do I usually spend about 1 hour in the water. The last time I went snorkelling I observed 3 Painted Combers (Burqax) pointing at a spot under a rock. I knew what that implied. I dived, and nestled in the crevice beneath the boulder there it was, a good-sized Octopus. The Combers stick to the spot near an octopus not out of love but in the hope of getting a chance to tear a small bite from its tentacles. That's how I can explain it.
I did not have a harpoon so I just looked at it cursing my luck for doing myself out of a delicious pot of octopus stew.
Snorkelling is fun and in Gozo the sea bottom is beautifully magical. When you go down you are in another silent world.
From Marsalforn as well as from Xlendi you can book a Boat Cruise for a half or for a full day. It takes you around the Island with a stop at Comino for a short stay and a marvellous swim at the Blue Lagoon.
Marsalforn from the upper promenade
Comino is a marvelous place even for us locals who have been there so many times. It is still as God created it, untouched by human hands, save for a Hotel and some bungalows tucked away by themselves in a little bay.
In the evening from 7 onwards Marsalforn starts to come alive with the number of passers-by increasing gradually. Everyone is dressed up, some going for dinner at the various restaurants, some for a drink in the wine bars and others just strolling on the promenade or sitting on the benches enjoying the cool sea-breezes and watching the world going by.
The night-life for the young ones starts at 10 and keeps on till the early hours of the morning especially on week-ends. Many youngsters come over from Malta for the Marsalforn nights.
You are welcome anytime to come and savour the magical atmosphere of Marsalforn and if by any chance you need an Apartment in Marsalforn I might just have the right one for you. This beautiful second-floor Corner Flat is for Short Lets.
The Apartments that I recommed are all Top Class with regards to sea-view, nearness to the beach, furniture, etc. and they all have the basic requirements. Above all they are very clean and well-kept. I also offer Accommodation in other localities apart from Marsalforn.
