Located on the North West corner of Malta, a holiday to Mellieha offers access to some of Malta's best sandy beaches including one of the largest and most popular sandy beaches on the island – Il Ghadira, more commonly known as Mellieha Bay.
The quiet town of Mellieha itself is situated on a steep hill offering holidaymakers spectacular panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea below, while the larger resort of St Paul's Bay is only a short journey away.
Whilst the largest beach is found in Mellieha, holidaymakers looking for a quieter beach to lose themselves will quickly find the picturesque Ramla and Paradise Bays to the north or the rocky Anchor Bay just beyond the western headland.
For those seeking the delights of Maltese cuisine, a Mellieha holiday offers access to a selection of small, but nevertheless fantastic local restaurants, while a greater variety can be found in the nearby larger towns of Buggiba and Qawra. Those who wish to see another side of the Maltese Islands during their holiday to Mellieha, a day trip to Gozo or Comino is well worthwhile, the ferry port is only a short distance away for Gozo and there are plentiful Comino day trips by speedboat available.
Although a relatively small town you will find that a holiday to Mellieha is literally bursting with attractions from the nearby Popeye Village which is great for families with younger children, to the festivals and historical culture as well as water sports and scuba diving - Mellieha has it all. Our great package holidays at Mercury Holidays allow you to experience all of this with out the fuss of trying to put it all together yourself so why not call us today?
The climate is typically Mediterranean, similar to that of Southern Italy or Southern Greece. In the summer there is up 12 hours of sunshine a day.
