The Weekends are always the most special time of the week and of course, everyone wants to do something special or just unwind.
Malta offers a lot of activities for active and lazy weekend planning. One of my favorites for a Sunday in sunny Malta is a trip to the cozy fishing village Marsaxlokk combined with a dip in Saint Peter’s Pool.
Every Sunday there is a huge fish market in the village that offers freshly caught fish, vegetables, local products and all kinds of other stuff. The best part of it is that the fish is sold to the nearby restaurants and served for lunch and dinner on the same day. If you like fish that is your place to have a real feast!
One of the restaurants that can be highly recommended is the “La Nostra Padrona” the selection of fish and seafood is stunnishing and the dishes are executed perfectly! It is highly recommended for a special experience!
After strolling around the market and enjoying a great lunch, consider a trip to natural Saint Peter’s pool. You can take your own or rented car or consider a taxi (15Euro) or one of the Boat taxis (starting at 4Euros). For hiking and walking fans it can be easily reached by foot as well, just use a lot of protection from the sun if you go in summer and remember to carry a lot of water.
On the rocky seaside and in the crystal clear water it is easy to fight the heat and to have a great time. The natural pool is perfect to jump from cliffs and to snorkel and float in the water.
That place is a little crowded on summer Sundays but empty during weekdays so you can choose what you prefer. It is definitely one of the best places to spend a hot day in Malta.
