Marsalforn is one of the most popular resorts on the island. In summer, it throbs with life as hundreds of Gozitan and Maltese families move in to spend the season by the coast, and foreign visitors arrive for a revitalising dose of sun and sea. The promenade runs along a beach of sand and small pebbles, providing a pleasant place to stroll at all times of the year. In the warmer months, local families and tourists gather to enjoy the sea breeze and balmy air. The rocks along each side of the bay provide plenty of space for sunbathing and a launch pad from where swimmers can plunge into deeper water. These are also good places for snorkelling. Small fishing boats gather on the eastern side and, in winter, when almost everyone else has gone, fishermen can still be seen peacefully repairing their boats and mending their nets. Motor and sailing boats give the place a lively look in summer and there are several good boat trips on offer, including a cruise around Gozo (with swimming and snorkelling stops), and a trip over to Comino to experience the legendary Blue Lagoon. Marsalforn is a popular base for diving enthusiasts who can choose from a variety of diving schools and dive sites. The village is also well served with restaurants, bars, self-catering apartments and hotels.
