Great for the kids....if they've heard of Popeye!

This is an entertaining way to spend a bit of time on the way to or from somewhere. I suspect it might be less fun in the searing heat of summer though. Well worth a visit.

We spent an afternoon here in February so it wasn't terribly busy. Our family participated in the Take 2 Show of creating a Popeye movie. It was longer than expected but we all had a blast and thoroughly enjoyed the final product. A fantastic memory of our visit.

In February, they were preparing for tourist season so not everything was available. Overall, the Popeye village us as entertaining as you 'go with the flow'. Nevertheless, the village is located on a stunning location and gives off a real holiday vibe.

Upon arrival we were given a timetable of events that would happen through out the day, one... More

A nice visit that took a little over an hour. Cost us €29.50 for 2 adults, a 4yo and 2 babies in buggies. I would recommend leaving the buggies behind though as there is a steep hill to get down to the set. The set itself is very much in keeping with the film but buggies had to be parked... More

As we drove up to the bend on the opposite side we had to stop and admire Popeye Village from the top of the cliff, stunning! For 11 euros including a Free glass of Mulled Wine, Free Postcards and a Free boat trip around the bay it's great value and a definite must see in Malta.

On first arrival you are greeted by friendly staff who are happy to help. As you walk through to the walkway down there is a picturesque view of the whole village and sea. The actors were very enthusiastic and were happy to talk to you and take photos! There were both sketches and interactive shows both portrayed the characters well.... More
