Planning an escape to the Maltese sun? Holidays in Mellieha Bay are a must.
Mellieha Bay has a precious Maltese rarity – a sandy beach. And it's the longest one in Malta. Buckets and spades, bikinis and sunnies. Pack your weapons of choice and make a beeline for the soft sand, warm shallow Med and medley of bars that make Ghadira Beach. Enticed into the glittering waves? Pick up a paddle, put on a diving mask or attach yourself in various ways to the back of a speeding boat – it's all about the watersports. This is beach life, Maltese style.
Mellieha Bay unsurprisingly sprang up because of this swathe of sand. And the hotels make the most of it, whether it's the Luna Holiday Complex with its poolside seaviews or the secluded Hotel Mellieha Bay with its private sandy patch. It also means Mellieha Bay's shops sell everything you forgot – beach toys, sun tan lotion and other day-to-day essentials. And the odd trinket to take home.
Even if you're self catering, holidays in Mellieha Bay mean you can eat out every night. Locally caught fish become that night's specials – try some aljotta, a potent garlic, tomato and fish soup. Or perhaps some octopus? Don't worry, pizza, pasta and chips are on more menus than not.
Sun lover and night owl? Like most of Malta, Mellieha Bay is low key but Bugibba is just across the bay with clubs and discos aplenty. Otherwise, get the beers in or uncork that delicious looking local wine and unwind in the evening air.
Mellieha holidays – surely the reason summer was invented.
