  • It's small, not opulent but atmospheric. Don't miss stopping here at least for a few hours when travelling by bus via Mellieha. There's a small museum here, as well as a collection of votives and a documentation about papal visits. Through a glass floor you may see a crypt with ancient bones.
  • A beautiful place to visit. I would highly recommend visiting the museum inside. Must-see
  • One of the best years of my life!
  • Got married here. Beautifully atmospheric place, a hidden gem.
  • Very nice and ancient sanctuary church. Well worth seeing!

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.
