Marsaxlokk is a small fishing village( over 3000 inhabitants) on the south-east of Malta which provides easy fish and seafood almost for the entire island.
The two dishes still get on the Maltese tables straight from the sea: the local fish chic lampuki and the octopus, which is stewed in wine with garlic.Basically the Maltese eat fish not too often: it is expensive.
Fishermen conduct their fishing as well as their fathers did it, and before that their grandparents, going to sea in brightly colored "big-eyed" boats.
Anyone knows why this is necessary: if you happen to thick fog, the painted boat will find its way into the home port.If you're lucky enough to see Marsaxlokk, you will remember this show for a lifetime. It offers lovely panoramic views.
