Mellieha will be very quiet at Christmas especially at the Bay where outside of the hotel you will have very little to do in the direct vicinity. Weather will be in the mid teens (average) and there could be some sunny spells where it will feel a little warmer. You would be better looking at either Bugibba/Qawra or Sliema/St Julian's which will have better options for tourists at this time of year. I suggest you look at the Top Questions on the right of this page for more information on these areas. Christmas is a nice time to visit Malta.

2. Re: christmas in mellieha

I have spent the last 17 Christmases in Malta.

Looking in my journal that I keep for all holidays and breaks , it confirms that I have been able to sunbathe midday every Christmas day with the exception of one .

I stayed in Bugibba or St Pauls Bay and found this a good place to spend the holiday.

Mellieha will , as Tripalot says , very quiet.

You really need to be somewhere livelier.

I also agree - Mellieha is very quiet in December & nowhere to potter near the Seabank bar the beach itself. It's truly scenic but Qawra / Bugibba will offer more for you off season.

HI All

I mean this in the best possible way because I love Mellieha but if you can think of those old westerns with ghost towns where no one exists that's how Mellieha will be at Christmas time it is simply the wrong place to be at that time of year.

Try looking at Buggiba Qawra St Julians Sliema areas for Christmas in my humble opinion

Just to clarify before any one from Mellieha goes into melt down I stay in Mellieha from time to time and love the place

All the best
