Things to do : Explore the Town

The town centre of Mellieha is packed with interesting and useful shops, restaurants selling delicious local and international food and friendly cafes with chilled outdoor seating. The town’s side streets are pretty, typically Maltan, giving an insight into the lives of the people who live here all year round. Folk sit outside their houses on warm evenings chatting, a good way to meet the locals.

Mellieha village and the Main Square are about 5 minutes bus ride or 30 minutes’ walk from the apartment.

Popeye Village

The kids will love this feature of Malta! Popeye Village was originally built as a film set but now it’s a magical place for children, with a museum as well as live puppet shows and a funfair.

The Feast of Our Lady of Victories

If you visit between 30th August and 8th September you can join in with the big celebrations for the Feast of our Lady of Victories. One long party covering the whole week, filled with exciting displays of fireworks, live music and folk dancing, local arts and crafts and a spectacular procession.

The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Mellieha

Fancy some history? Our lady of Mellieha church faces onto a really pretty ancient square with a sparkling fountain and trees. This is a little oasis away from the holiday turmoil. Or visit the Parish Church complex complete with wonderful medieval cathedrals clinging to the slopes & the unmissable war shelters!!

Ancient Art

There’s an ancient painting in Mellieha Sanctuary Cave, of the Madonna and Child.

Red Tower

If one keeps going uphill past Mellieha Bay one definitely cannot miss the Red Tower and again be stunned by the scenery. It is unobstructed with views of Gozo, Comino and Mellieha Bay. The Red Tower used to belong to a series of seven Towers

Directions to Mellieha from Airport:

Follow signs to Gozo, drive along the Salina Coast Road, keep driving straight past Bugibba area, at the traffic lights you will see signs to Mellieha. Turn round the roundabout and follow signs to Mellieha through either St Pauls Bay or through the bypass towards Xemxija. Once past the hill of Xemxija keep on going straight until you arrive to Mellieha roundabout.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Sandro and Doreen,

We are almost home in the UK but we have had the best time I'm Malta, and most of that is thanks to your great apartment.

It felt like home and a perfect base to explore the island from. Thanks for everything

Better than imagined

  • 5 of 5

There aren't enough good words to describe my experience here!

Doreen and Sandro were incredibly kind and accommodating: I kept in touch with Doreen via WhatsApp in the weeks leading up to the holiday in order to arrange everything, while Sandro made sure to explain everything once I got there and he showed me how everything worked.

The flat is better than the photos: really good size, good value, with everything you need for a Maltese getaway.

Mellieha is a great base to explore: bus stop just outside the flat that gets you everywhere, and easy to go to both the south of the island but also to Gozo and Comino. Furthermore, you have all the amenities you need (ATM, supermarket, etc.) and the biggest sandy beach in Malta is on your doorstep.

110% recommend!

Clean, Comfortable and Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Throughout the booking process, Doreen was extremely helpful and patient, even arranging transport from the airport. On arrival, husband Sandro met us and showed us into the flat. We found the flat to be very roomy, clean and comfortable. Everything required for a comfortable stay was present. The beach is a very close walk, as were numerous restaurants with various menus. Would highly recommend.

The gorgeous Mellieha Bay beach is the longest beach in the area with lovely clean, shallow water and golden sands. Mellieha is an excellent location to spend your holidays whilst in Malta. All the major beaches are all a stone throw away. Since it is located in the north of Malta, it is extremely easy to go to Gozo or Comino for a day. Crossing over from Mellieha to Gozo would just require a 5 to 10 minute drive to the Gozo Channel car ferry terminal in Cirkewwa ...Mellieha offers shallow waters and a vast expanse of smooth golden sands, and the presence of life-guards make it an ideal spot for families with children. Watersports are available on Mellieha Beach, including water-skiing and parasailing, with fun activities such as banana boat rides and pedalos on offer. A good choice of beach bars and restaurants line the beach and some large hotels sit back from the seafront.

In our building one of the apartment , the owner is doing some work . They start work in April till June 2017 and they stopped and left the work undone because they had some problems with the permit so we don't know when or if they going to start work again . Our guest didn' t find it a problem as they sometimes started work at 7.00 am , our guest found it as an alarm clock to get on and enjoy the day . So if may think can be a problem be aware , maybe they start again in summer 2018
