Mellieha Hotels

Mini guide to Mellieha


Mellieha lies in the north of Malta and is one of the island's most picturesque tourist destinations, with several clean beaches and excellent accommodation. The village is impressively located on a high ridge, facing north and overlooking the wide bay below.

Ghadira Beach, Mellieha Bay, Ramla Bay and Paradise Bay each have their own small sandy beaches. Malta's largest beach, Mellieha Bay, is just outside the village. It is long and sandy with clean, shallow water that is ideal for small children. All the popular water sports are available and there are numerous beach bars.

The central street winds downhill and is surrounded by fertile valleys. Most spots provide good panoramas of the countryside and bay and views north towards Comino and the island of Gozo. The semi-underground majestic Baroque church, built in the late 19th century, contains an older sanctuary with a fresco of the Virgin Mary which is said to have been painted by St Luke himself on his visit to the island in the year 60.

The town centre boasts splendid hotels, fine restaurants and traditional shops. Mellieha's main festive season occurs in the first two weeks of September and reaches its climax on September 8. During these days, various cultural events are held, such as: musical concerts, fireworks, folk singing, art exhibitions and the traditional religious procession.

If you have a car, head over to Gozo on the car ferry and explore this fantastic island with its deep valleys, hilltop villages, ancient buildings and rugged coastline. The 'Inland Sea' on the southern coast at Dwejra is a must-see. Back on Malta, take a slow drive around the Dingli cliffs before heading to the enchanting capital Valletta, with its amazing architecture and tourist-friendly winding streets.

Malta International Airport is 22kms to the east and there are regular buses into Valletta, where bus numbers 44, 49 and 452 leave for Mellieha until about 22:00. Flying time from London is three hours, and charter flights are available only as part of a package holiday. Regular car ferry and catamaran services operate between Malta and Italian (including Sicily) and North African ports.
