Visited this place with my boyfriend and spent a little over an hour here. It's worth a visit but the place is very run down and quite simple. I would only recommend visiting this place if you have your own transport. Approx. €10 per person

This is an amazing location - the actual set of the 1980s film Popeye, starring Robin Williams. It's as if the characters have just gone on a break and we are left to walk around and explore all the nooks and crannies. It's a bit dated now and could do with a lick of paint, but the shabby-chic element adds... More

Looking from the far side of the village, it looks fun and inviting, but having paid to get in and walk down a very very steep hill it is so very disappointing, I was glad it was just my husband and I, for if we had children it would have been worse. The buildings are so needing repaired,painted and refurbished... More

Dear Sharon, First of all, we thank you for finding time to visit Popeye Village during your holiday in Malta. We are sorry to read that by far we did not reach your expectations. Nonetheless, please understand that the shabby appearance of the film set was the idea of the director of the same 1980 movie Popeye who wanted the... More

This film set has been left intact In a beautiful part of the far north west coast of the island . The views from the cliff tops are exquisite and give a real picture postcard feel to the attraction. Lots of activities and entertainment for children .

Dear ChiantiSister, We are delighted to read that you had a memorable day here with us at Popeye Village.

It is nice to go there and to see the village, but personally I find it sufficient to see it from the other side of the bay (there is a parking where you can stop and observe the village). Additionally, you can also go/drive to the see on that part of the bay to see the village also from that... More

This place is really beautiful. The characterful buildings really stand out and provide a perfect picture opportunity. The film set is fun if you get involved with the entertainers. As I was chosen to play Popeye I guess the film making part was more fun for me. But apart from that the village doesnt offer any rides or amusements that... More
