Mellieha Things to Do: 44 reviews and 81 photos
Near the both churches you find the Mellieha shelters. As Malta was bombed heavily in World War two you will find many of those shelters on the island. I found it quite interresting to get an imagination of the life during long air raids. As to make it more real there is the sound of the alarm coming from far away. On the other side a new born baby is crying. All rooms that you find inside the long tunnels are documented in many languages.
The whole thing is organized by some Mellieha clubs who reopened the shelters a few years ago.
It's definately worth a visit! Entrance fee is 1 Lm.
Address: Our Lady of Grotto Street
The most expensive part to live in Mellieha is Santa Marija and indeed it's very nice there.... Most houses have a view to the sea from above there. You have to climb many steps of a huge stair to get there, if you don't have a car. Just turn right behind the Maritim hotel....
I really liked the beach at Mellieha bay. Ok, it gets quite crowded, especially on weekends when all the Maltese people are going to the beaches too.
The water is clear and the beach is really sandy, no stones etc... I found it even cleaner than Golden Bay.
There are many kiosks selling fresh and cold fruitslads or icecream if you like and you can rent an umbrella and sunchairs, which is quite comfortably for a day a t the beach I think. The sun cream don't get too close to the sand in this way :)
Address: Mellieha Bay

Traffic chaos alias Mellieha
The main street of Melleiha. Usually a melting pot for all broken exhaust or something like that. It's really noisy, and I'm used to traffic noise from home. It ś very narrow, so at some places it's hard when a bus meets a car....it always causes trouble here....
Well the best thing is to watch the party going on, it's never boring. even at 4 am a ferrari might pass this narrow streets.... :)
Away fromt he fact that it's noisy, all shops are situated here. So if you need a newspaper a postcard or some medicine, you will al find it here...
Address: Triq Borg G. Olivier
Typical street scene in Mellieha
The best thing in Mellieha is to wander around the side streets for a while. Away form the main street this is Malta, in its typical way I think. I used to take an evening walk around town and I loved the empty streets, every now and than some people are putting their chairs on the street and talk with their neighbours.... Some of them will geet you and have a chat with you either. It's nice!
At daytime you will find many beautiful details on the house walls....
Address: All streets except Borg G. Olivier Street
Sanctuary Gate in Mellieha
All on this square is very picturesque I think, It starts with this iron gate, which is also very beautiful I think.
I liked the view through the gate at night time, when the orange lights are shining through from the main street. It was too dark to take a pic unfortunately :(
At one side of the square there are some arcades and you get a great view to the sea from here while resting on a bench for while.
The lovely yard
In front of Our lady of Mellieha there is one of the most picturesque squares of Malta I think. I always found it as a qualm hideaway right next to the loud Mellieha main street.
In the middle of the square there is a fountain and in one corner of the yard there are a view small trees. Really romantic! One of my favourite places in Mellieha
Our lady of Mellieha
This is the small church that is nearly overseen by most visitors I think. It's right below the huge church and it's build inside the rocks...
Parish Church of Mellieha
It's the biggest church of Mellieha and its place on the edge of the Mellieha Ridge gives it a mighty look I think. You get the nicest look on the church from the rooftop terrace of the Antonin Hotel I think. (there is a pic in the hotel travelogue)
Another nice view over the church you get from Santa Marija, the new part of the town which lies on the other side of the valley...
I also liked the interior of the church. It's held in white and is very simple decorated...
Address: Parish Square
