While it is true that Marsaxlokk becomes a large open-air market daily, on Sunday everything is magnified, as there are not only more foreign customers, but we find more stalls and more locals who come to spend the day in the village or buy products for their daily work. Early on, fishermen display and sell their goods to the highest bidder almost without setting foot on land, from inside their luzzus (typical fishing boats). They are red, green, blue, yellow… And all, absolutely all, decorate their bow with the so-called Eye of Osiris, who, they say, ward off evil spirits.
This small enclave, has the privilege of being the largest fishing village on the island and also of owning the second largest natural port, so in other times galleons and other boats captained by pirates found here the perfect refuge.
Once stocked with souvenirs and photographs we take the coach that will take us to the Blue Grotto where, in addition to admiring one of the most spectacular geological accidents on the island, we will go down to the fishing area of the village of Zurrieq so that those who want can take a boat to admire the magnificence of the multiple caves and the large rock that gives name to this place , if time permits (boat not included, as they operate depending on weather conditions) of course; those who have been left wanting to follow the shopping in the also very lively and full of tendetes city of Zurrieq; or those who are already tired and satisfied with their new acquisitions can relax and have a drink before returning to the hotel.
