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.

  • This was a really fun stop! For €10.50 you get access to the whole area, a boat ride, a free postcard and a free punch. Mini golf is included, and there are about 12 holes to play. They have a large game area, so you can play checkers or jenga, and it's conveniently right by the restaurant (which smelled really good but neither of us was very hungry). The boat trip out into the bay was very informative and offered great views of the park. The documentary and comic museum are pretty good. This place was silly, but fun.
  • Fun day out, star in your very own Popeye movie! Interesting and A great place to look round. Reasonably priced too and doesn't rip you off once inside. Well worth a visit!
  • Fun day out for the family. Good facilities, bars and restaurants serve good local produce. Enthusiastic and friendly staff. Don't miss the chance to star in a short Popeye film. Dvd provided at a small cost.
  • Very good for every age. Buses drop you right outside the entrance. Plenty to see & do for children and adults.
  • Amanzing site!. I like it!.

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.
