  • Small but a good alternative to walking near the roadside on the hill. My son spotted a Chameleon in some of the shrubs and it changed from green to brown as it moved down through the shrub. Amazing to see one in the wild. Found out that they were introduced on the Island in Victorian times but escaped some gardens and spread over Malta. Must be rare to see one though because they are well camouflaged
  • Its quite pleasant, surroundings good.
  • Very small nature reserve but its a great sight from above. Open for school visits but a bit irregular opening times
  • Small yet nice reserve.
  • Very small and rather disappointing.

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.
