Marsacala was previously a lovely little Sicilian fishing village and it’s name actually translates to ‘Sicilian Harbour’. In recent years it has developed in to a seaside resort popular with both Maltese and foreign holiday makers. Many Malta residents own second homes here that they visit in the summer months and this gives the place a very local feel. The resort is not as lively as the bigger resorts like St Julian’s and Bugibba and there is not as many sights but it will suit people who are looking for somewhere a bit quieter with some great restaurants.
