Mellieha Bay : Holiday Accommodation
Located 30km west of Valletta, the village of Mellieha is a peaceful place with narrow lanes, a steep main street and a massive 18th-century church with an ancient shrine. It also has a clean, gently shelving beach that's ideal for children. Over the road, birdwatchers will be in their element at the Ghadira Nature Reserve. You'll also find a good range of shops selling essential goods and souvenirs. It's quiet and relaxing at night, with a selection of cosy bars and restaurants selling delicious fresh, locally-caught fish. If you're looking for a lively evening out, Bugibba or St Julians are about 12 km away by taxi.
