Colourful fishing boats of Marsaxlokk, Malta

  

Marsaxlokk is a traditional fishing village located in the south-eastern part of Malta, with a population of 3,277 people. The village’s name comes from marsa, which means "port" and xlokk, which is the local name for south east. The word is related to the name for the dry sirocco wind that blows from the Sahara, comparable to the equivalent Catalan word, "xaloc".
