About Mellieha Bay

Malta's Mellieha Bay is where a beautiful ribbon of beach is watched over by the historic town on the hilltop.

A vibrant yet relaxed place, Mellieha Bay is very inviting thanks to its golden sandy beach with countless loungers plus bars and restaurants filled with good food and cold drinks. Take part in watersports, snorkelling or simply sit back and soak up some rays.

Hop on the bus for a short ride to the town above - or walk if you're feeling adventurous. Meander through the narrow lanes, browse boutique shops, and investigate the various Baroque churches to get a feel for local life.

There's plenty to entertain history buffs in and around Mellieha Bay, from the 17th-century St Agatha's Tower (or Red Tower), offering views across to Gozo, or for something a bit more recent, visit the area's original air raid shelter for a taste of Maltese life during World War II.

If the great outdoors is calling, pay a visit to Majjistral Nature and History Park, Malta's first natural national park. Here it's all about conservation and preservation, looking after the land and the species that inhabit it.

Take a guided walk or snorkel to see it at its best. There are also some fascinating day trips to be had, including visiting the ancient city and former Maltese capital of Mdina, as well as Mgarr, where you'll find the UNESCO site of the Ta'Hagrat Temples, which date back to 3600 BC.
