Located on Gozo’s northern coast, the fishing village of Marsalforn is the island's main tourist resort. There are many traditional eateries specialising in fresh fish dotted about the small harbour-town, where in summer the streets come to life as visitors stroll around the promenade, choosing where to spend the mild evenings. The atmosphere is vibrant yet relaxed, popular with both tourists and the Maltese. The villages and bays that surround Marsalforn each have something to offer, from Obajjar bay, perfect for snorkeling to the picturesque Zebbug, elevated above Marsalforn and enjoying superb views over the whole island.

There are some lovely fish restaurants here overlooking the bay. Rabbit and meat stew is very popular amongst the Maltese as well as delicious Italian-inspred pizza.
Although Marsalforn is the most popular resort amongst tourists, as with most of Gozo, the nightlife is low key, however there is a variety of interesting bars and restaurants to enjoy a quieter night out.
Sample some great Gozitan wine or take part and learn about the harvest at the Ta Mena estate. As well as wine, the estate produces great jams and fresh olives, all from local produce. You can buy a bottle to take back to the villa with you, which will beautifully compliment the fresh seafood available on the island.
The Xwejni Saltpans nearby are still used today for the collection of sea salt. Hewn out of the coastal rock, the saltpans were part of the island's first industry. Centuries ago salt was used as a bartering currency for consumables not available locally. Salt collected from the Xwejni Saltpans can be found in most supermarkets on the Maltese Islands.
The mysterious Ggantija Temples in Xaghra, Gozo, were believed to be built by giants! They are the oldest temples in the world with no real evidence as to how and why they were built.
