Lisboa European Best Destination

Perched on a series of hills in the north-west of Malta lies the idyllic locality of Mellieħa, a European Destination of Excellence (EDEN). Today Mellieħa has a community of about 10,000 inhabitants and comprises the hamlet of Manikata and Selmun.

 

Surrounded by green plush valleys and the crystal clear blue seas of the Mediterranean, Mellieħa is quickly establishing itself as a destination for all seasons. Whether out for a walk along the rural country trails, visiting the historic Marian Sanctuary or one of the many local forts dotting the coastline, a quick dip in the blue waters of Mellieħa Bay or the other 12 surrounding bays, or during one of the very popular activities organised by the Mellieħa Local Council, this locality has a lot to offer.

 

The Mediterranean cuisine is easily found in one of the many restaurants found in Mellieħa, which will surely leave the visitor with a good taste and provide that much needed superb gastronomic experience. Whilst making the most out of the local produce such as fresh fish, herbs, honey, wine and salt, the chefs in this typical village are spoilt for choice in providing the tourist with such an experience.

 

With its typical village square and the commanding church, quaint village houses and picturesque views over the bay and ridges Mellieħa is surely the place for your next visit.
