Overview

Mellieha enjoys a fantastic reputation and was awarded with European Desitination of Excellence by the European Union. The lively mix of locals, expatiates and tourists makes Mellieha the place to be if you enjoy outdoors, stunning views and naturally sandy beaches!

Facts

Mellieha bay is about a kilometer wide nestled between two stretches of protruding land much of which makes up the northern rocky landscape of Malta leading to the cliffs at l-Ahrax tal-Mellieha. It is the northern most town before reaching the Gozo Ferry which will ferry you across the archipelago to the sister island, Gozo.

Nature reserves

Opposite the beach, a nature reserve can be found where many migrating birds can be seen as they cross from Europe to north Africa. Castles and ruins embellish the country side from centuries gone by such as it-Torri l-Ahmar known also as St. Agatha’s Tower. More info at – http://dinlarthelwa.org/

Cycling in Malta

Cycling especially off road is popular in the Maltese islands. Although it never made it into a dedicated means of transport, it enjoys a strong following by enthusiasts that brave the rocky terrain for some adrenaline fuelled moments. You will get to enjoy stunning views of Comino, Mellieha and Gozo and much more.

You can always stop at the beach after for an ice-cream at one of the many Gelaterias dotting the beach. Talk to us and we shall introduce you to Robert, our trusted guide and cycling fanatic that keeps everyone happy with his humour.

Fishing

If you enjoy fishing, email us and we may give you some tips as to good fishing spots. Over the sandy beach a number of delicious fish can be caught during the night or very early morning as well as below the cliffs.

A number of fishing tours are available where you can experience terrific big game fishing out at sea. Some popular fishing methods locally are running ledger, Bolognese, float fishing, spinning for calamari and spear fishing apnea style.

Watersports

Enjoy paragliding, waterskiing, canoeing, motorboats or jet skis by renting one at one of the suppliers at Mellieha bay. A license is not required for tourists renting smaller boats. We suggest you speak to the supplier themselves about this and they will guide you.

Golden Bay

Golden bay is only 10 minutes drive from Mellieha bay, a stunning beach with adjacent paths for walks in the country side and stunning scenery. The clay hills rising from the beach towering over nearby beaches and inlets provide for some privacy if you’re lucky.

Secluded beaches

Although the island is small and heavily populated, there are still some secluded beaches. The good news is that you don’t necessarily need a boat to get to one of them. Imgiebah Bay is one such beach where, if you’re willing to walk a little, you will be rewarded with amazing views, crystal clear waters and some privacy. There are no shops in the vicinity so we suggest taking all you need with you.
