Description

Anchor: in the outer end of the bay, good holding. There is a large shallow area to the East side of the main channel towards the small fishing boat marina which is perfect for catamarans.

Good all round anchorage except strong gales from the SSE. Holding is excellent once you found a sand patch. 

Warning: the shoal that extends a short distance on either side of the entrance.

Ashore: This small village has become the largest fishing port on the island is famous for brightly coloured boats adorned at the front of an eye. Sunday Market is a big attraction for locals and tourists. Buy fresh fish, bigilla, fruit and vegetables and more.

All provisions at short walking distance from the small finger jetties in bay. Bars, restaurants and shops. Some good fish meal deals on the waterfront at lunchtimes.Fuel and water at the fishing quay.

The entire W bank is taken by the commercial port, tankers and ferries and the NE shore is occupied by the Delimara power station. 

Don't miss: if you dive, at the end of the Delimara Peninsula, after Marsaxlokk, there is a small square rock that indicates a good area to dive. An underwater reef begins at a depth of about 9 meters and gradually decreases to 12 meters where we discover a vertical cliff of up to 25 meters. There is also a cave and a vertical tunnel returning directly to the surface of the reef. The bottom is littered with big rocks. We saw an elusive grouper, stingrays, various other fish and marine life.
