Mellieha

Theme Parks · Beaches · Churches
A growing town in the northwestern section of Malta, the lively tourist destination of Mellieha sits perched between two picturesque bays. Originally developed by British settlers, rapidly expanding Mellieha welcomes a growing number of pleasure seekers from around the world, most of them drawn by the longest sandy beach of the Maltese Islands. Although this popular beach tends to get extremely crowded, the rest of Mellieha retains much of its small-town feel, even at the height of the tourist season. Known for its thriving culinary scene, the town features several award-winning restaurants serving Maltese specialties like traditional pastizzi and fried rabbit dishes.

Where to stay in Mellieha

To fully enjoy Mellieha's beaches, stay in either Mellieha Bay or Mellieha village. These two areas will provide you with the best access to Malta's largest sandy beach, as well as several restaurants and bars. Both fancy hotels and more affordable options can be found here. Golden Bay, Paradise Bay, Marfa, and Cirkewwa are also good options for lodging, but are situated farther out of the city, away from the main village and its amenities.
