We wanted to check out a bit of the North so we booked our ecab and decided to go to the Golden Bay then with a bus to Cafe del Mar and back to Marscascala by taxi. It's a definitely interesting experience but with some ups and downs.
I am in love with this view....coming over from The three cities by ferry is definitely a must to get a great view of the port.
"The Three Cities is a collective description of the three fortified cities of Birgu, Senglea and Cospicua in Malta. The oldest of the Three Cities is Birgu, which has existed since the Middle Ages. The other two cities, Senglea and Cospicua, were both founded by the Order of Saint John in the 16th and 17th centuries." (Source)
When going to Malta, it is not extremely important where you stay as everything is very close by. The reasons why we decided to chose Marsaskala for our accommodation were: one of the few locations that has also a sport of sandy beach, it's proximity to Valletta and the cute traditional fishing boats that can be found in the area
