We had an amazing afternoon in Popeye Village, though rather perfect for families with small kids. The environment is beautiful, the village has own beach and different facilites for water sports and having fun.

The Village is not very big and there isn't exactly much do to but its a fun place. Some water type attractions and a pool complete with slides etc for the kids. There is a very steep hill to get down to the village (and then back up) which is pretty slippery so remember to take adequate foot wear 9... More

Fantastic place to visit, wish we found it sooner in our holiday, staff were really friendly and couldn't do enough to help! Annalise (sorry if spelt wrong) was amazing and we had a good laugh with her. Place is spotless and very good value for money. A drink, boat trip and a postcard all included in price! Food is good...

Visiting Popeye Village will offer you a nice day, spent between Popeye characters with several animations, a nice relaxing place to enjoy the sunshine and an enjoyable bay to swimming in the warm waters of the Mediterranean and play with some water playgrounds. Recommended, specifically if you have kids!

One of the best attractions of Malta. Though it was small but wonderful to see around the best sites. One of my favourite cartoon Popeye the sailor, it was amazing to see the place.

Blazing hot day, I went snorkelling in the bay then went to Popeye Village. Mulled wine and pizza on the terrace. I really enjoyed exploring the village, all the rooms and stairways. Enjoyed the shows and the film with Robin Williams as Popeye.

Popeye village is very well preserved but is probably more interesting if you have seen the film. The floating trampolines & assault course were great fun but only if you are a strong swimmer. My 5 yr old struggled to get onto the rafts and there was nowhere for a tired mum to hold on whilst kids jumped off -... More
