MELLIEHA - DESTINATION OF EXCELLENCE
Mellieħa was once an isolated 15th century hamlet perched on the ridge overlooking Ghadira Bay. Over the years, it has developed into one of Malta's most popular beach resorts, whilst retaining much of its rural character. In 2009, Mellieha won the prestigious European Destination of Excellence award.
Mellieha is one of Malta's most picturesque tourist destinations. The town centre boasts of its splendid hotels, fine restaurants and traditional cute shops. It has a unique primary school, a majestic baroque church (built in late 19th century) and various cultural organizations, including band clubs, sports clubs, an orchestra, various religious societies, a parish community centre and an environmental pressure group. Since 1993, local affairs are being run by the Mellieha Local Council, an institution made up of seven councilors, elected every three years by the people.

Mellieha Bay lies on the northern side of the island about 15 miles from the airport, with Ramla and Paradise bays situated either side of it. The hilltop location winds down to a great variety of shops to cater for all your holiday needs, while Paradise and Ramla have virtually none whatsoever. The beach at Mellieha is the largest on the island, and has enough water sports to keep you occupied throughout the day.
Mellieha me-lee-ha (also called Il-Mellieha) is a large village (pop. 7,549 (Nov 2005)) in the northwestern part of Malta. It is a popular tourist destination during the summer months. Mellieha as a village developed under the British colonization. The British started proposing people to settle in this area by giving leases to the population. It was only during this time that it started to be inhabited again as for two centuries it was abandoned due to fear from attacks of corsairs and Saracens, and beforehand there were only some villagers used to live in the area. After the British encouraged Maltese to settle in Mellieha, the village kept on flourishing. Nowadays, the village also includes a large number of villas. Even foreigners choose to settle in Mellieha.
Malta is both an outstanding summer vacation destination as well as a living microcosm of Mediterranean history. Few people realize or expect that on such a small cluster of islands one can come across such a wealth of historic traditions. Besides archeological and architectural gems Malta's great attraction are the numerous village "festas" falling mostly during summer. These festivities in honor of the village patron saint are characterized by band marches, colourful street decorations, spectacular firework displays and a religious procession where the statue of the patron saint is carried through the village streets. At the same time, Malta's many beaches are an obvious place to spend the time waiting for the celebrations to begin or to have a break from the rich historical tapestry of the islands.
