• Mellieha, Cirkewwa & Golden bay

Mellieha is Malta’s most northern town, and was once little more than an isolated hamlet, virtually abandoned up until the eighteenth century due to its vulnerability to attack. Today, Mellieha is a thriving locality fulfilling the diverse needs of its traditional locals and influx of tourists.

Home to the island’s largest sandy beach at Ghadira, Mellieha is a haven for those who love the outdoors, offering numerous nature reserves, coastal and countryside walks and a stunning range of historical fortifications.

Mellieha is famous for its stunning Parish Church and lively village festa which overtakes the square and surrounding streets each September. The area is home to numerous private villas and houses, particularly in the areas overlooking Ghadira bay. Closer to the centre of the old town and one can experience a more traditional way of life characterised by corner niches, winding stepped streets and alleys.

Mellieha is just a short 20-minute ferry trip from Malta’s sister islands of Gozo and Comino, famous for their untouched greenery, beautiful lagoons and spectacular historical and cultural attractions.
