Jolly good fun
Dec 2020
It’s a little bit on the small side and quite expensive for what it is, but also jolly food fun, even as an adult.

Name, nationality, phone number, address, group size, collected at the entry
Dec 2020
The location was open during the COVID19 pandemic time in December 2020. The bus 101 from the coastal road goes to the village every one hour and the ride was fast.
The shows and short movies in the village were available yet the big restaurant inside was closed. 11€ for an adult entry with a free postcard and a popcorn till 5pm closure. No one was swimming in December but there were a lot of things to take photos inside. The Christmas Town attraction inside was suited for the Christmas time visit and there was a Santa Clause at the saw mill area with stuffs to take the phots with him.
The entry requires the submission of first name, family name, nationality, phone number, address, number of people together for the data collection. I encountered such in the Napale restaurant in Is-Suq in Valletta when I dined there. So, the Popeye Village was the second location I submitted my information.

A quirky little village that has grown from its days as a Film Set of the 1980 'Popeye' starring Robin Williams.
Sep 2020
Well it took all day to get there but it was worth it in the end even if we were the only ones there, to be honest our sat nav wasn't functioning and not being a native of Malta and my wife being my co-driver was probably not the greatest combination adding in the fact that every Maltese person that we seemed to stop for directions looked blankly at us, so more than a few expletives were bounded around the car.
Anyway the place itself would have been much better on a lovely sunny day as there is a beautiful bay there with lots to do its a quirky little village that has grown from its days as a Film Set of the 1980 'Popeye' starring the late great Robin Williams into one of the major tourist attractions on the Maltese Islands filled with a number of colorful fun activities, all in all definitely worth a visit!!

Had to visit after watching film
Oct 2020 • Couples
Visited early 1 morning and the place is brilliant.

Very old, several items were closed due to Covid but fully understandable

Waters are brilliant, the small shows put on are entertaining

Cheap enough to get in and pleasantly enjoyable

Lovely adventure for Popeye Fans
Oct 2020
Unfortunately we had really bad weather when we were there, but it was still a great adventure. The artists did their best to make a funny tour for only 4 tourists visiting that moment. Also the scenery is real and very authentic. For kids this is a dream to come true and for 10 Euros entrance it is definitely worth a trip. You also get popcorn and to watch a free short movie about the making off of popeye. If we had good weather we would be able to swim in the nice panorama pool as well.

An outing totally worth it
Oct 2020
When In Malta, the Popeye Village film set is not to be missed. You can spend almost a full day here. On arriving at Popeye village, it is highly recommended to walk around before going in. Take in the picturesque views from the rocks across. The ticket to go in is worth it too. There's different activities, like some games and puppet shows. It's built in a charming way to walk around, specially enjoyable for children. You find people dressed as Popeye, Olive and Bluto walking around. A small cinema theatre where you get some popcorn. There's sunbeds to relax and lots of opportunities to click pictures. Although it was much quieter due to pandemic times, the buzz in usual times (specially in summer) wasn't hard to imagine. The nearby Mellieha Bay can also be checked out on the same day.
