Photographer's Note

Marsaskala (M'Skala) is a sea-side village in Malta that has grown up around the small harbour at the head of Marsaskala Bay, a long narrow inlet also known as Marsaskala Creek. The bay is sheltered to the north by Ras iż-Żonqor, the south-east corner of Malta, and to the south by the headland of Ras il-Gżira.

The name comes from the words "Marsa" (meaning "Port") and "Sqalli" (meaning "Sicilian"). The village extends along both sides of the bay, and across most of Il-?amrija, a creek leading to Il-Ponta tal-Gzira.

The parish church is dedicated to Sant Anna (St. Anne).
