Mellieha is a rural village in the North-Western region of Malta and its name derives from the Semitic root 'm-l-h' which in Arabic means salt.The name was probably adopted because of the ancient salt-terns the Punics & Romans had established at Gadira - the large sandy bay lying at the foot of the village.
Further north from St Paul's Bay lies one of Malta's most picturesque tourist destinations, Mellieha. It sits atop a hill overlooking the North end of the Island and is an attractive hilltop village with a central street winding downhill. 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. It is also surrounded by fertile valleys and most spots provide good panoramas of the country
