Msida Marina

Msida town was originally a little fishing village but now merges into Ta’xbiex, a wealthy enclave that’s home to the majority of Malta’s diplomats and embassies. Msida’s biggest claim to fame today is its mammoth yacht marina, which stretches along the north side of Marsamxett Harbour right up Msida Creek.

Msida

The basics

Along with berths for hundreds of yachts, this marina is home to a cluster of shops and seafood restaurants. A sprinkling of traditional fishing luzzus provide a splash of cheery color among the smooth lines of the contemporary sailing craft moored up in the marina. Sightseeing cruises pass by, and it’s a great place to come independently for a meal or to soak up the atmosphere.
