A holiday in Malta would hardly be complete without a beach, and Mellieha certainly delivers with the stunning Ghadira (Mellieha) Bay! At 800 metres long, Ghadira is the largest sandy beach in Malta, and its Blue Flag, impressive range of facilities on hand and water sports available make it the most popular beach to boot!
Aside from its proximity to the city, one of the main features of Ghadira that sets it apart from the neighbouring Paradise Bay for families is its shallow waters. Here, you can walk out for a long while before the water even reaches your waist, making it perfect for young or inexperienced swimmers.
Step into the movies with Malta’s very own Sweethaven Village!

Here you can see props used in the film, watch behind the scenes clips, and even take part in interactive shows with Popeye, Olive Oyl, Wimpy and Bluto!
A visit to Popeye Village is sure to be a hit with young and old alike, with activities and sights that all ages can appreciate.
As is the case with the rest of Malta, the locals in Mellieha believe that the island was once visited by Saint Paul, the apostle. It is said that Paul was was being transferred from Jerusalem to Rome to face trial when he was shipwrecked on the island, and spent his time there preaching to the locals.
However, there is an additional belief that Paul was not alone, and that he had Saint Luke accompanying him. During his time in Malta, Luke was said to have discovered a cave in Mellieha where he painted an image of the Virgin Mary. This cave was consecrated as a church in 409 AD, and is now known as the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Mellieha.
