Mellieha has something that’s quite rare in Malta – a handful of sandy beaches! Choose to stay by the bay and you’ll enjoy the breathtaking seafront. Also known as Ghadira Bay, you’ll have ample space to stretch out on the golden sand overlooking the shimmering waves of the Mediterranean.
Delightful day trips
Incorporating Malta’s most northern point at the Marfa Peninsula, Mellieha has a harbour ideal for boat trips to take you off exploring the neighbouring islands of Comino and Golfo. Traipse around mighty UNESCO-branded temples, religious buildings like cathedrals and basilicas, and many other wowing pieces of architecture raising the skyline.
Activities for all ages
Mellieha is also the site of a very unique theme park – the Malta Popeye Village. Created from the film set of the 1980 Popeye movie, it’s a quirky setting where you can
even tie the knot! If soaking up some history is a real priority, Mellieha Air Raid Shelter is a must-visit.
