Popeye Village Malta, Mellieha

3.6
#1 of 6 in Theme Parks in Malta
Theme Park · Water / Amusement Park
Today a family-entertainment complex, the collection of colorful rustic buildings that make up Popeye Village Malta served as the set for the Walt Disney feature film "Popeye" (1980), starring Robin Williams. The coastal village, consisting of 19 wooden buildings, took a crew of 165 over seven months to construct. Explore the town where the sailor searched for his long lost father, watch clips of the movie at the on-site theater, and take in a live performance with some of the Popeye series' best-loved characters. Visitors can take a boat trip around scenic Anchor Bay, weather permitting. Adults can visit the winery to claim a complimentary glass of wine. Put Popeye Village Malta on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Mellieha sightseeing planner.

  • Enjoyed a couple of hours here on a mainly cloudy day. It was very interesting to see all the movie memorabilia  more »
  • We spent half a day or so here. It was fun with lots going on but was quite expensive (about £50 for a family of 4) and you couldn't spend more than half a day here really.  more »
  • The village is super cute and every house has a story. The price is affordable and it gives you access to all the houses, and swimming area, free popcorn, and a cute postcard. Definitely a must for...  more »

  • We were out of season and probably a lot better when it's summer but it was still great 😁😁 we made a short film with the team that was on the square with us, crazy fun 😂😂 Admission is paid 10 euros. You get a free postcard, pictures and movie popcorn. If you want that movie you shot whit team then 5 euros extra and there is a movie premiere you shot. Great for fun, adults and kids. Recommendation 😁
  • This is a theme park based on the set of a 1980 Popeye movie with Robin Williams in one of his early roles. After the filming, it was turned into a very family friendly theme park that I can very much recommend to families and adults who have a love of good ole Popeye and Olive Oil. In winter, make sure to be there shortly before closing. You will get to see a most spectacular sunset. Overall, the location is just sensational.
  • Little gem of a place. Perched on a beautiful cove. Worth a visit for all ages. The film set itself is well kept & interactive. Easy to get to using public bus. Really friendly informative staff.
  • Well, this was the best place we visited in Malta. Kids really liked this place and we also had a lot of fun. At this place you will spend either half, or a whole day, discovering the village and watching or taking part to the events happening there. I would really suggest not to miss that if you visit Malta. Prices are much more than reasonable also!!!
  • Great attraction for kids and family to attend. There are great spots for taking pictures and participating in games and activities. TV is also played where guest can watch Popeye on television...can play mini golf and visit the wonderful walks of the film-set
