The sleepy old town of Mellieha is perched on a hill on the north coast of Malta and it promises ultimate relaxation. Discover the liveliness of the hillside town as you take the winding roads up to the resort, halting at the cafes, restaurants and shops along the way.
If you’re feeling adventurous, there is plenty to explore in the surrounding area during your Mellieha holidays, including Malta's former capital Mdina, which is 30-minutes away. The capital of Malta, Valletta, is a melting pot of culture worth wandering, with ancient churches, museums, baroque landmarks and the island's main port harbour. Evenings during your holidays to Mellieha can be spent indulging in the spectacular Mediterranean cuisine by the seafront, before heading into lively Bugibba for a change of pace. There is a variety of places to stay on Mellieha holidays, so you can treat the family to a 5-star stay in one of the fabulous beachfront hotels, choose a friendly bed & breakfast, or check out our superb self-catering deals if you prefer to get-up-and-go.
This resort is a great choice if you’re looking for a low-key getaway with the family, especially with attractions such as Popeye Village, a fantasy land built in honour of the 1980's cartoon! The months of July, August and September are the hottest for Mellieha holidays, with temperatures in the 30°C and the best time to travel to the coastal paradise. The Malta International Airport is 23km from Mellieha, and takes about 40 minutes to reach. The Mellieha Bay is an additional 5km from the airport.
