Mellieha Bay Hotel is on a green cliff with tropical landscaping and steep stairs that lead to a private shingle beach, where there are a few lounge chairs and umbrellas. For scuba divers, there’s the on-site Aquaventure Malta center. It’s a 10- to 15-minute walk to Malta’s largest sandy beach, Ghadira Bay, which gets crowded during peak season. It’s a 20-minute bus ride to Mellieha town with the Parish Church of Mellieha, Mellieha Air Raid Shelter, restaurants, cafes, and shops. This hotel’s location is quieter than the lively St. Julian’s that’s an hour away by bus. Malta’s capital, Valletta, is an hour and a half by (the usually crowded) public bus. By public transportation it’s 30 minutes to the Popeye Village Fun Park. The Cirkewwa Ferry Terminal is a 15-minute bus ride with ferries to Gozo and Comino. Driving to the Malta International Airport takes about 45 minutes.
