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

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
Our family of five stayed in the apartment during the first week April. The place is wonderful and extremely cozy. The pictures of the apartment are accurate and its conditions are perfect for relaxing after an exciting day of exploring Malta and its lovely islands. Without question, the happiness and success of our mini-vacation is based around our stay at this apartment.
Everything works fine in the apartment. The owners have definitely invested their time to ensure guests have everything needed during their stay. Everything is clean and well kept. The rooms have fans and are likely to be just as comfortable in the summer as during our stay. We had enough room to move around the apartment, and again we are a family of five, so that speaks volumes about the comfort-level here. Overall, the apartment was kid friendly and safe. An added plus is the WiFi (WLAN) in the apartment. It works extremely well. All five of us have devices and there was no issues between entertaining ourselves and planning our next excursion.
The owners were extremely helpful, and arranged a shuttle bus from the Airport to the apartment. Sandro spent some time showing us everything in the apartment and ensuring we understood how everything functioned. They definitely enjoy a healthy relationship with the neighbors. This was evident by how nice everyone we met in and out of the apartment building was to our family. You can't ask for better people to arrange a comfortable vacation with.
The area of this apartment is fantastic. We were able to get everywhere around Malta by catching a bus just outside of the building. The apartment is a ten minute bus ride to ferries to take you to Gozo or Comino. It is also a ten minute bus ride to Popeye Village, which was really interesting for Popeye and film lovers. Ghadira Beach is a few minutes walk away and looks fantastic. There are few small restaurants nearby and the food is pretty good. The area is so wonderful. We are definitely going to return for the summer months.
We booked the apartment for a week in October, just the 2 of us. We wanted somewhere nice to be if the weather wasn't consistent and this apartment was a lovely place to unpack and relax. It is exactly as pictured, everything is in really good condition. Even for 2 people it is still cheaper than most apartment resorts but with the added luxury of having lots of space.
The apartment is nice and cool (temperatures stayed at 25+ the whole week despite a few showery days), there are fans in every room and the balcony doors let lots of air flow too. There was always hot water for the shower and the kitchen is well-equipped. It was a nice safe place to come back to every night and with free WIFI we could stream a movie on our iPad or research places to visit.
The owners are lovely and friendly. I was a little anxious about being conned by someone on this website, but Doreen added me on Facebook so I could see she is a real person, and we communicated often via messenger. They made us feel welcome and valued and were happy to answer our questions about Malta etc.
We hired a car and there is ample parking outside the apartment and free parking everywhere in Malta. There are restaurants, bars and shops a couple of blocks walk towards the beach where we bought delicious warm fresh bread in the morning as well as essentials (soap, toilet rolls etc). The local beach is sandy and there is a couple of boat companies doing cruises to Gozo & Comino right there on your doorstep - a really lovely day out (we went with "Oh Yeah" cruises), well recommended.
Very nice appartment only 5 mins walk from the beach. The kitchen had everything you need to cook your own meals at home. Close to shops and restaurants. Perfect for a family with small children (ours are 12, 8, 4 and 1). We will return to Malta since we had a great time and the children loved it and when we do we know where to stay...
Propre et neuf. Cuisine fonctionnelle. Propriétaires très sympathiques
Proche des belles plages de Mellieha. La vue de la terrasse n'est pas exceptionnelle (elle donne sur l'arrière du bâtiment) mais cela n'enlève en rien le charme de cet appartement.
Mon amie et moi avons passé un agréable séjour de 10 jours. Les belles plages de sable se trouvent à proximité.
Un peu plus loin pour faire la fête à St Julians mais bus à proximité et nombreux taxis sur l ile.
The apartment was very comfortable with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Everything is as shown in the pictures. There we found really everything what we needed and we feel like at home!
The Ghadira Beach is just a few minute walk away. Bus stops just outside the apartment. Close supermarkt, restaurants, shops etc.
Balcony had view to a courtyard, but it wasn't a problem, since most of our time spent we not at home.
Doreen and Sandro were very friendly and thanks once again for them!
(and I'm sorry for my late reply.. ;) )
Recommended for: Tourists without a car, Families, People with Disabilities (the building has a lift).
Very very nice and homelike apartment in a excellent place: near the sea and very usefull to move in the Island.
The kitchen is very equipped, there's really everything you need! Everything is new and clean.
The owners are very gentle and receptive.
It has been a nice holiday and a good choice!
Appartamento davvero molto carino in un posto comodissimo sia perché si è vicini al mare che per spostarsi nell'isola.
La cucina è fornitissima e c'è davvero tutto. E' tutto nuovo e pulito e ben tenuto.
I proprietari sono molto gentili e disponibili.
E' stata un bella vacanza e un'ottima scelta!
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.
