The Mediterranean island of Malta is filled with pristine villages and vivacious cities that make for a near perfect vacation destination. There is enough urbanization to make visitors still feel like they are in the twenty-first century, but not so much that the Olde World ambiance and culture is washed away in a sea of mobile and wireless devices.
Marsascala was, for many years, a forgotten fishing village by the people of Malta. Some historians believe it was the settlement's proximity to the sea that both attracted and discouraged much of a population growth for fear of being ransacked and ravaged by pirates. Marsascala was instead inhabited mostly by foreigners who saw the village's many advantages as a port. Remains of Roman occupation can be found all around the area. As further proof, part of the city's name has Sicilian roots. This is added flavor to the beautiful diversity in Marsascala's history, aged buildings, and in the traditions of the people.
For those whose hearts flutter at stunning landscape, the city's rugged coastline is a sight to behold from the seats of your car hire. And possibly bring on palpitations. Like the mythical sirens in Greek mythology who beckoned sailors to their doom, many ships have been crashed like toothpicks upon the jagged banks. Anyone wanting a closer inspection needs only to strap on a mask and fins. Marsascala is as breath taking underwater as it is on land.
A great way to cool off and charge up would be the stone covered promenade that is laid out for what seems like miles. There are a plethora of quaint shops and restaurants to nourish both the body and calm the itch to shop. Several resorts with all the posh amenities one could expect have sprung up over the recent years, making Marsascala more than just a pit stop along the way.
