Marsaxlokk is a traditional fishing village much frequented by tourists located in the south-eastern part of Malta, with a population of 3,499 people (March 2013). The village’s name comes from marsa, which means "port" and xlokk, which is the local name for south east. The word is related to the name for the dry sirocco wind that blows from the Sahara, comparable to the equivalent Catalan word, "xaloc". The village is known for the Marsaxlokk Market, a large market which takes place around the whole village on Sundays and tourist market all days during the week. The inhabitants of the village are called the Xlukkajri and are historically fishermen though a large proportion are now involved in tourism
