The hotel is fairly isolated, it's very close to a nice beach and a couple of beach bats but there is very little else. The town is a short bus ride away but not easy to walk to. Very close to Popeye Village which was good but little else in the vicinity to see/do.

Fantastic beach area and safe for children as you can walk out into the sea a goo distance before it becomes too deep. Plenty of stuff for children and adults to do too including inflatable obstacle courses, jet ski's , speed boats etc although they are quite pricey.<br /> <br /> Munchies beach restaurant is fantastic and offers a great range of food and drink,even catering for the English.<br /> <br /> Beds on the beach are approx 4 Euros each as are the small tables so beware.<br /> <br /> The Town centre is pretty basic with some smaller shops and restaurants and access is via a step hill so those with movement difficulties etc be aware although you can take the bus.<br /> Shops close in general in the evening between 8-9pm also.

It is a beautiful place but shuts down at 11pm. It would be nice to have a quiet location you could sit and watch the world go by past this. There were a couple of places open after this but we were advised to give it a miss. So if you're looking for a quiet village, this is for you. There are some nice restaurants too. It is an expensive resort to eat and drink.

Pleasant resort and town within walking distance with a lovely church. Plenty of eating places close by the hotel on the way into town and in the town itself. Visited the air raid shelters that the people dug themselves well worth a visit. Bus stops conveniently across the road from the hotel that take you to the other popular island resorts and Valletta. Also short bus ride to ferry for Gozo. There is a beach across the road from the hotel which is a good beach by Malta's standard as the island is not renowned for beaches, water is lovely and clear and there are watersports available.

From our point of view the resort is perfect. We like to walk and there are some great coastal walks in and around this area. The bay itself is a little quiet in February but Mellieha village itself (just up the hill) is still quite busy. There are a few nice shops and there are a few tatty shops - likewise there are some lovely restaurants and there are some not-so lovely restaurants but well worth a look. There are busses to Valletta and Bugibba should you want to venture further afield but we manage to find enough walks to keep us busy every day.

Mellieha is a lovely village at the top of a very steep hill, lots of steps leading off the Main Street so probably not suitable for less able people. Excellent cheap bus service - you really don't need to book an airport transfer just hop on the X1 which stops right outside the Maritim hotel. Lovely sandy beach in the bay at the bottom of the hill.

We stayed in Mellieha bay which was lovely, quiet and peaceful. The beach was a 10 minute walk away and was a beautiful location. Busses ran regularly from the resort to everywhere on the island and the cost was minimal.

Beaches

Set in the shelter of Mellieha Bay, Mellieha boasts the longest sandy beach in Malta. The pale sands shelve gently into clear waters, suitable for swimming and families with children. There are a number of diving centres in the resort, catering to all abilities and other popular water-sports include snorkelling, sailing, speed boats, water skiing and windsurfing.

Things to Do

Popeye Village is a year round tourist attraction where you can have fun at the film set from the Popeye musical production; browse the Popeye Museum, play minigolf or watch a show. There are rides for small children and during the summer there is a beach lido and water trampolines. During December the attraction is themed for Christmas.

The Cirkewwa Ferry Terminal is just 3km north of Mellieha Bay and ferries run to and from the neighbouring island of Gozo all day long. The ferry takes car and foot passengers and the journey time is approx 20 minutes.

If you enjoy a walk (or a short drive) and a secluded beach, head up to the north peninsular, passing the Red Tower and relax at Paradise Bay (2km) or, head in the opposite direction towards the White Tower, to Arnier Bay (3.5km).

Out and About

Sitting high above the Mellieha Bay and surrounded by terraced farmland, the town of Mellieha is a quaint maze of narrow streets and authentic Maltese atmosphere. Here you can see the large, ornate Parish Church and admire stunning views over the Bay. Close to the Church, you can walk through the WW2 Tunnels and Air Raid shelters which tell a fascinating story.

You will find plenty of bars and restaurants in Mellieha as well as some livelier nightclubs during the summer season. In addition, the town is on the local bus route to Valletta and many of the coastal resorts and medieval inland towns, should you wish to explore.

Nearby Attractions

On the opposite side of the island, (5.5km from Mellieha Bay) you will find the golden beaches at Golden Bay and the quieter Riviera Bay. Both are perfect for sunbathing and swimming but Golden Bay is better serviced if you are looking for water-sports and refreshments.

There are many museums, ancient towns and archaeological sites to explore across the island, as well as a wide variety of tourist attractions; such as the Palazzo Parisio & Gardens at Naxxar; the Water Park on the road to St Julians; St John's Cathedral, the Inquisitors Palace and the Malta Experience in Valletta and; the Aviation Museum and Craft Village at Ta' Qali. Visit the picturesque fishing village of Marsaxlokk on the south coast and the ancient towns of Rabat, Mdina and Mosta in the heart of the island.
