marsaxiokk to airport

Our last day in malta is on 9th Feb, and we would love to spend it in marsaxlokk. We are staying in st Pauls bay. Do you think it would be difficult to bus it from there and then to airport, would it be better to hire a car for a couple of days... also is it recommended to book restaurants on a sunday..even in february? thanks in advance..

In answer to your first question, it rather depends on what time your flight is and how much luggage you will have. Also bear in mind that there is no direct bus from Marsaxlokk to the airport so you would have to take a bus to Paola and catch a bus to the airport from there.

Thanks Phil.. we have to be at the airport for about 5.30p.n, and we have hand luggage only, but still i suppose it will be a bit of a pain to carry them around all day... Do you think it is complicated to change buses etc... would it be expensive to get a taxi??

Thanks for the info...

No it is not complicated, but you need to give yourself plenty of time in case one of the buses gets delayed. I suggest the following:

Probably the easiest way would be to catch bus 81 from Marsaxlokk, at 3.54 or 4.14 pm to Paola Square (journey time 20 minutes). Alight at the bus stop opposite the Prison, then cross over the road and catch either bus service X2 or X3 which depart from Paola at 4.25 and 4.55 pm (journey time 10 minutes).

If you would prefer to take a taxi from Marsaxlokk to the airport, the journey would only take about 15 minutes and would probably cost about €15.

we have hired a car in the past for the last couple of days , came in handy due to having to leave the apartment by 10.00am but flight not till late in the afternoon.By this stage we had seen the main sites but left the remote places for the last couple of days. Cant remember who we rented the car from but it was a local in Sliema and all we had to do was leave the car at the airport carpark & drop the keys in the designated box inside the terminal...Malta airport is not that big so this was easy. Was a bit worried about leaving the car without someone checking it first etc but all was good..no extra charges. Pity I cant remember who the company was as some are not always honest.
