Holidays to Mellieha Bay, Malta

Overview

Set on the northern part of the island, Malta’s rocky coastline turns into beautiful sandy beach at the small town of Mellieha Bay. The soft sand beach isn’t the only surprising thing about this relaxed resort though. There’s also a quaint Old Town perched on top of the hill and there are plenty of cultural and historic sights nearby that are just waiting to be explored by those who want to discover Malta’s past.

Beaches

With one of the only sandy beaches on the island, Mellieha Bay attracts those looking to soak up the warm sun or maybe even try a water sport or two. There are plenty of sun loungers spread along the 800m beach but if you’re feeling more adventurous, sailing, windsurfing and water-skiing are all available. The water is always really clear too so snorkelling is a fun way to spend the day the day in the ocean.

Things To Do

Apart from living the beach life, Mellieha Bay is a great place to explore the cultural side of Malta. You’ll be a 30 minute drive from Mdina, Malta’s old capital city where 11th Century buildings take centre stage. Valletta, Malta’s current capital city is also only 25km away and is home to pristine gardens, palaces and ornate Baroque architecture. Nearer to Mellieha Bay though is the Old Town, where you’ll find a maze of narrow streets and laneways.

Food and Drink

If you stay down by the bay for the evening, you’ll find yourself surrounded by fresh seafood restaurants where baked fish are often found on the menu along with risotto and feta cheese. The Old Town is where to find a traditional local meal and you’ll discover it’s soon worth the 20 minute walk up the hill for a dish of wild boar that’s served alongside a well-deserved glass of wine.
