Marsalforn (Bus No: 306, 310, 322) is one of Gozo’s main tourist resorts. During the months of summer it bursts to life as many Gozitans and Maltese spend the season in their summer houses there or flock for the day where, after relaxing by the sea, they enjoy the balmy evenings walking along the promenade and dining under the stars at one of the many harbour-side restaurants.
Marsalforn in winter, Marsalforn returns to its quiet origins as a fishermen’s village. However, hotels and restaurants continue operating.
There is a small but pleasant sandy bank on the harbour with safe bathing and good rocky coastline towards Qbajjar which is excellent for snorkeling.
