Popeye Village Malta, Mellieha

3.6
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.

  • Very nice place in a beautiful small bay. The village is really nice, there are good programs for the kids, but also the adults can spend here a nice time.  more »
  • I did not think that an artificially created place has so much charm. A small boat is included in the admission price. Also with prams doable since all ramps available. The Bay is really nice especially from above.

  • Great looking houses, unfortunately at this time few attractions ware close. Definitely staff need some training, not customer focused at all.  more »

  • We visited them on Halloween theme week and it was really great. The whole village seemed to transform into a haunted village. They had set up a really big haunted house that went through several of the regular houses. They had a trick or treat run for the kids with really great tasks for them to fill for candy. The views from the village onto the sea are amazing. We didn't have lunch there since our hotel was a 15-minute walk away so I can't really comment on the menu, but it is possible to get lunch there as well. The sea attractions weren't available at this time (it was windy and a bit too chilly to enjoy getting wet). But we thoroughly loved our day there.
  • Loved this place!!! I thought the entry fee of €14.95 was good considering this included a boat ride, post card and cup of punch. The boat ride was beautiful. The sea is amazing and there is inflatables to play around with. Great fun and very interesting. We stayed around 1hr 15 but can imagine you would stay much longer if you were doing some swimming In the beautiful bay.
  • Entry is around 10 euro, you get a small drink, postcard and photo for free. We ended up joining other visitors and made a film which was a great experience (took around 40 mins) Had a lot of fun and the place itself is gorgeous. Was a little disappointed that the boat was not in service when we went, but that was due to bad weather. Would definitely recommend.
  • Popeye's village is an amazing place to visit. There are many activities offered during the daily program and all these in a very good price. Furthermore there is a restaurant where you can eat and relax. The souvenir shop is very good and the beach is perfect. Do not miss the boat trip which is included in the price of the entrance.
  • Popeye Village is a nice place. I can recommend the boat ride! However lots of sizes seemed to have been closed down. Especially disappointing was the food: A low quality burger for high quality prices. No gluten free offers. Everything for kids was deep fried. Better you bring your own food!

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.
