Good views of Popeye Village and the bay from the top of the hill but as you enter the village you see how run down it is, you will not need to spend more than an hour here.

Our son did not know the story of Popeye and the concept is outdated... Due to where it is situated it is VERY hot during summer... I don't recommend a visit...

Loved this and loved Malta sooo much, we will come back soon <3 I watched the movie from 1979 with Robin Williams before we visit the Popeye Village. I imagined the movie into the place :) Worth to go there! We had wine and popeye village picture included in the entry fee!

We visited in February 2017, had a great day out, lovely place to see, the views are stunning. My mother in law has a walker and could not get back up the hill to exit so they came and took her back in a car. Very good service.
