Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Staying in Mellieha bay was a perfect stay.

To begin George was waiting for us at the airport with a sign with our name on it, so no worries when you arrive. We also rented a car with him, very good price and he gives you the opportunity to have a full coverage if you wish, so he was waiting for us at the airport with our future rental car and then guided us to he apartment.

The apartment is just like the photos, it was really clean, big and very well decorated with many useful utilities that you may need at your stay: an iron, an iron table, a hairdryer, beach towels... George even left us some appetizers typical from Malta, very tasty. The apartment has beautiful views and if you stay the first week of September you can be lucky enough to have fireworks a few nights in a row where you can see perfectly from the window or terrace, a private terrace with a bbq that you can use. It is also near to one of Malta's most beautiful sandy beaches, it's a 10min walk down the hill and 20min back up, or you can just go by car. It's very easy to park at the apartment.

If you need any tips on where to go, what to visit, George can help you too.

And our experience with the rented car mentioned above was great too. George was very flexible so we can keep the car until our flight departed and waited for us at the airport to pick up the car again.

Once more, a very nice experience in Mellieha bay with George, thank you very much for your kindness. If we go back to Malta we would love to repeat.

The property is extremely well located as it is close to the bus station and the best beach in Malta

  • 5 of 5

We are a young couple who traveled at the end of September to Malta and chose this property as accommodation for 11 nights. We are very happy with the choice we made as George and his property really made our holiday a special one. George was most helpful and the description, as well as the pictures on the website are 100% true. The apartment is well equipped in terms of house appliances and also a good wi-fi connection and AC if needed. Apart from this, George offered us a free ride to and from the airport and we appreciated it a lot.

Thank you very much George for all your support and kindness! We will be back!

Lovely apartment and neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

Were staying there in June 2016, three adults and two kids.

Lovely apartment with gorgeous view! Walking distance to the beach. Just across road from church. Nice barbecue on the roof. Very silent area.

The landlord is very helpful. Organized our transfer from and to the airport.

The Mellieha bay beach is very nice and child-friendly.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay and would definitely come again!

Good size apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was as described and the views to the town were spectacular. The area was quiet and suited us as we wanted peaceful evenings. It was well maintained and very confortable with all the items you need for a trouble free stay. The kitchen was particularly well equipped, and the laundry facilities excellent. George was on hand to sort out a minor problem during the week.

We enjoyed the walk up to the town which had sufficient shops for our needs, baker, butcher and supermarkets. The walk down even better!

Happy to recommend this apartment both for its facilities and location.

Little gem

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time In this apartment highlights George collects and returns you to airport ..beautiful equipt & spacious apartment with a lovely balcony to watch sunset .. Views of the bay & the stunning church lighted up at night that looks like a fairytale !!!! No outside noise as you are in the middle of the hill but still close enough to walk up town or to the beach & recommend a weekly bus pass from post office at €21 unlimited Beach towels provided at a very small charge .. There was also milk bread etc for us as we arrived very late which was really appreciated & George was at end of a call if any problems which there was none ... A wonderful stay to explore the island Loved it & would highly recommend !!!!!!

Mellieha Bay
Car: not necessary

Mellieha, a picturesque town in the North of Malta

Mellieħa is a village located in the Northwest part of Malta. Mellieha is one of Malta’s most attractive tourist and summer resorts with beautiful sandy beaches and blue sea. Mellieha has Malta’s largest sandy beach, Għadira, which is perfect for families with small children, as the water remains shallow for a considerable distance from the shore. Mellieħa also has a lot of splendid seaside hotels, good restaurants and many traditional souvenir shops. During the summer months the population increases significantly due to many Maltese having summer residences in Mellieha, but the all year around inhabitants are around 7250 people in an area of 22.6 km2.

Mellieha’s main Village Feast “Il-Vitorja” is held in the beginning of September and it reaches its peak on 8th September. During this popular feast, the village is full of activities such as musical concerts, fireworks, folk singing, food stands, and exhibitions and of course many religious processions in honour of Our Lady of Victories. The Mellieha village feast is a great experience to both tourists and locals.

For tourists choosing to spend their holiday in Mellieha it is worth renting a car, as it is about 20/30 minutes from St Julian’s.

Mellieha: Things to do and see

Ghadira Bay: Easily accessible, this spot is a favourite with families, who tend to stay out for the day. There are sun beds and umbrellas for rent, but there is still space on this wide beach for anyone wishing to bring their own equipment. There are plenty of snack bars and small cafes and the beach offers different types of water fun, such as pedal boats rental, parasailing or large floating play areas.

Ghadira Natural Reserve: The nature reserve encloses two types of habitat that are very rare in Malta: wetland and salt marsh. The area was declared a bird sanctuary in 1978 after BirdLife Malta presented scientific data to the government showing the ornithological value of the wetland (read more here).

Armier Bay: The sandy beach at Armier stretches around the shore of an open bay and is just a short drive away from Ghadira bay. This sandy bay has a lovely view over the Islands of Comino and Gozo. Bars and small restaurants provide the necessary beach facilities.

Popeye’s Village: This popular attraction is the film set of the 1980 film, Popeye. Popeye’s Village has daily shows for the tourist as well as rides for the younger children, slides, trampolines and a Lido.

St. Agatha’s Tower: This Tower, guarding the bays of Mellieha and Ghajn Tuffieha, is more known as the Red Tower. It was built to act as a signalling post in 1647 for communication with the island of Gozo, so it’s natural that it dominates the skyline of Malta's Marfa Ridge. It originally housed cannon, 30 men and enough food to withstand a siege for 40 days (read more here).

White Tower Bay: White Tower Bay is enclosed by a fortification wall that was built by the knights.
