Interesting for a couple of hours

My daughter (17) and I visited for a couple of hours, enjoyed the boat trip and finding out about the film. We were able to walk from Mellieha bay with no problem

Nice theme park with live shows, possibility of boat trip and swimming in the sea, lying on the sun. Mandatory program when visiting Malta if you have children.

It's a bit of a track to get to, understandably, but if you're a Popeye fan it is a must place to visit. The scenery is magical and the bay in which 'Sweethaven' sits is a site to behold. It must have been great fun for Robin Williams and the rest.

After getting the 221 from Bugibba, we changed to the 237 at Mellieha Bay and made our way to the Popeye Village. On entering the attraction, we realised that there was quite a steep decline to get to the actual buildings, but this looks worse that it actually is and is well worth the few minutes walking. The place has... More

Wonderful Coulourful Village hidden between the cliffs, good view and breathtaking sunsets! I liked the wooden houses and big waves when stormy weather, a place to relax and just enjoy the moment.

We caught the 37 bus from Valetta for the direct journey to Popeye Village (the bus turned to 237 at Mellieha Bay). The trip did take about and hour and a half as it stopped in so many places along the way. It was worth it. The movie set of The Robyn Williams' 1980 film is really well done and... More

We took our 10 yr old daughter here and she loved it, she was able to see around the village and watch popeye, bluto and olive sing and dance in the main square. In the afternoon they encourage visitors to join in and make a movie which you can purchase for 7 euros. When we visited it was a bit... More

Great place to take the kids for a day, loads of fun for the young and not so young! Lots of interactive activities, chance for you and the children to do some acting, see yourselves on the big screen and then buy the dvd. A great holiday souvenir! It has been a while since we last went but will definitely... More
