Robin Williams was a relatively unknown actor in 1979. His most notable role un

til then must have been that of eccentric alien Mork, in the American sitcom Mork and Mindy. The Popeye movie, almost entirely shot in this location was his stepping stone to an illustrious, dazzling career in Hollywood.

The film set was allowed to deteriorate for several years until private entrepreneurship saved it from oblivion and it has now flourished into Malta's favourite theme park. Careful restoration and additional props have breathed life into the ramshackle huts of Sweet Haven. Well, blow me down! Those freshly baked loaves at the baker's look so inviting – especially with a sprinkle of Olive Oyle! Do not over-indulge however or you may need to visit the doctor's office nearby. You may also wish to send a post card to Momma and Poppa back home, to tell them how truly memorable your visit to Popeye village has been – just ask the friendly officer at Sweet Haven post-office for assistance!

Children especially will be enthralled to interact with the cartoon characters and participate in the activities ably conducted by the park's animators. You may also try your hand at mini-golf and taste a sip of locally-made wine. A 20-minute documentary will take you back to 1979 to give you a glimpse of the film-making process behind the scenes.

Santa and his elves are always hard at work at Santa's Toy Town, making Christmas presents for deserving boys and girls all around the world!

Weather permitting, you will be treated to an enjoyable 15-minute boat ride around Anchor Bay. The little ones will also have the time of their life on the rides, or the water-trampoline during the summer months.
