Mellieha

Mellieha a village was developed under British colonization after the British encouraged people to settle in the area by giving leases to the population. The town has retained its historic centre with narrow streets and stepped alleys, and an underground chapel with frescoes said to have been painted by St Luke. The beach is the largest in Malta and offers good swimming with gently shelving sand. The north east breezes make it popular for windsurfing. Many of our villas are located in the estate of Santa Maria which enjoys great views over the bay. A good choice of shops, restaurants and entertainment can also be found in this popular resort.
