The Maltese archipelago consists of Malta, Gozo, Comino, Cominotto, and Fifla, plus a few minute limestone outcroppings.
Over 92 percent of the inhabitants live on Malta, by far the largest island, and the rest live on Gozo except for a few farmers on Comino.
The name Marsaxlokk comes from the word “marsa” which means port and the word “xlokk” which means south in Maltese.
Marsaxlokk has an old history dating back to the ninth century BC.
During the Great Siege of Malta, Marsaxlokk Harbour was also used as an anchorage by the Ottoman fleet.
It was in this bay that the first Phoenicians arriving in Malta landed and set up their businesses.
