Popeye Village (sometimes called "Sweethaven Village") is located in Anchor Bay in the north-west of Malta, near the village of Mellieha. It is the film set for the 1980 musical film Popeye starring Robin Williams. The village consists of a collection of ramshackle wooden buildings constructed over a period of 7 months prior to the filming.

Today Popeye Village functions as a museum and family entertainment centre. There is the beach area, 2 pools, mini golf and a souvenir shop. The complex also houses a restaurant and café.

Outside the village is another restaurant which houses a large jump around play area for kids and can be accessed without paying the entrance fee for the village.
