Me and my wife went to the Popeye Village, even thinking that it may have been closed, due to the weather and visit in November. As soon as we arrived, via car, we stopped immediately to see the amazing bay with crystal clear water and the layout of the houses, which indeed form a picturesque sighting. Inside, it was nice...

As soon as I found out that we were staying only 2.6 miles away from the village I knew we had to visit. Popeye was a favourite film of mine growing up and it's lovely to see that the old film set is still intact as I had heard it was in disrepair before visiting. The family got involved in... More

To enter you must proceed down a very steep slope so beware for anyone with walking difficulties. When we entered there are workers dressed up as characters in Popeye and they... More

If you loved the 1980 movie Popeye then Popeye Village is worth a quick visit. Keep in mind, it's completely out of the way and definitely not an all day affair. We flew into Malta, checked into our hotel, hired a taxi, and spent about an hour trooping around the set. The taxi was €30 each way, but you can... More
