    Colourful view at Marsalforn

    Lunchtime in Gozo is not a hurried affair. Allow yourself plenty of time - pick a good seat overlooking the harbour at one of the many little resorts that Gozo has to choose from. We stopped at Marsalforn on the north side! Try something local to eat in one of several waterfront restaurants, and enjoy! Look out for the modern statue of Christ that dominates the landscape as you get there!

    Marsalforn is a village in the north west of Gozo and is the island's most popular tourist resort,its lined with sandy beaches,plenty of hotels as well as bars and restaurants.Its also very popular with divers and there are plenty of diving schools in the region.
    The name of the village is taken from the Arabic word 'Marsa' which means port or bay and its history dates back to Roman times.It was an important major port until the 16th century with important trade with Sicily and other ports in Italy.with the development of Mgarr harbour,Marsalforn lost its importance but still retained its importance as a major fishing community.

    Road train from Marsalforn to the Salt pans

    by Raunchy_Poet Written Oct 29, 2013

    There is now a "Road Train" - called Calypso Train - running from Marsalforn seafront to the salt pans, hourly in the evening. It's a brand new vehicle, and a brand new service - started in August - run by the justly proud and enthusiastic Frank.

    Marsalforn Harbour

    Sitting on the quay, enjoying the sunshine and watching the fishermen handle their boats or nets is the most enjoyable distraction
