Anchor Bay

Anchor Bay is perhaps most known for Popeye Village, the set of the 1979 film starring Robin Williams as Popeye. After more than three decades, Popeye's Sweethaven village still occupies the craggy slopes of Anchor Bay, a relatively isolated cove just one kilometre west of Mellieħa. The village film set is a tourist attraction and often used as an activity centre. This tiny picturesque inlet is also used by fishermen who perch on the little quay left by the film set. A steep slope leads down to the bay. Although the waters here are generally calm, the bay is suitable only for good swimmers.
