MARSASCALA AND ST.THOMAS BAY

The elegant resort of Marsascala has grown around a narrow sea-inlet on the southern coast of the island. What used to be a small village-resort has now developed into a sizeable seaside town with numerous vacation houses and sumptuous villas, competing with the old houses on the shoreline.

Colourful fishing and sailing boats, riding on the clear water, enhance the cheerful aspect of the bay.

No sandy beach is available here, but coastal bathing is widespread from the rocky shores or from the modest facilities provided in the more frequented places.

Marsascala is today the biggest and most popular resort in the South.

ST. THOMAS BAY, near Marsascala, is quite a large bay with small sandy banks and shallow water suitable for bathing. Like Marsascala, it is fast growing into a seaside resort with fine buildings being erected all around.

A new road now joins this bay to Marsascala, one kilometre to the north.
