You talk of Popeye and you talk of my childhood, though Popeye Village wasn't built till 1980 for the Disney film starring Robin Williams. It's a group of what appears to be ramshackle wooden buildings (though that was done quite intentionally for the making of the film) located at Anchor Bay, two miles from Mellieħa. The rustic village comprises 19... More

Well worth the money. Absolutely amazing views! You can have a photo with Popeye, drink a punch, and enjoy time from childhood. Very interesting 'movie' how Popeye movie with Robin Williams was made.

Want a great fun day out ? Want to meet Popeye and Olive ? What about Bluto causing trouble ? Well you can have it all wandering around the film set, It's still all there. There is singing and dancing by the staff all day and you may be asked to take part in a film shoot that you can... More

Went here with a couple I met whilst in mellieha, none of us had children with us but even so it was a lovely day. The views from the opposing cliffs looking down onto the village and the wee boat ride out to the cave were the highlight for me. Wear sensible shoes, may be tricky terrain for wheelchair users

Between fortified cities in Malta, a change is welcomed at Popeye’s Village even for adults. If you are traveling with kids they will enjoy a lot the houses, the show, acting in a movie experience that they will remember for a long time. In winter the wind is blowing quite a lot, but the view of the bay is beautiful.
