A sheltered bay with good swimming backed by bars and restaurants in Gozo's main resort town.

Marsalforn is a magnet for those who want to mix sunning and swimming (and in some cases diving) with bars and restaurants. It used to be a quiet fishing village and the resort of choice for wealthy Gozitans based on the mainland returning for the weekend. Ill-considered development has run away with much of its charm, but there is a narrow stretch of sandy-pebbly beach and plenty of rocky shore to laze on and swim from. The water is glorious.
