Popeye Village Fun Park
Latitude / Longitude: 35.96100, 14.34105
Our Locals' Tip: Popeye Village is at its best in summer when you can aslo enjoy the lido, boat rides around Anchor bay and a splash pool for kids. And in the evenings throughout the Christmas festive season with Santa's Toy Town a top favourite with kids (and secretly adults too!)
This is the original Film Set of the 1980 musical production “Popeye” in which Robin Williams plays a starring role. Since then the place has been transformed into a year-round amusement park for all the family.
Sweethaven village is an all-wooden structure made to resemble a tiny village with a 1920s look and feel. Its various houses are home to a variety of attractions from Santa’s toy town to a winery with free wine tasting.
Popeye’s Village is really a place for all the family. You can even star in your own film and take it home with you. Cartoon characters and the resident animation team will make sure to keep the kids happy. There is also a jump-around adjacent to the restaurant and a small fun park with great rides for the children. It is also recommended to prolong your stay in the summer and enjoy the evening open-air barbeques.
The summer season inevitably brings with it more attractions with water trampolines, sun bathing decks and a beach lido. The beautiful Anchor Bay that the Popeye Village is located in serves as a suggestive and dramatic backdrop...especially when seen from the free boat ride included in the day’s package.
In Christmas, Sweethaven village takes over a completely festive feel with lovely lighting and Santa’s Toy town transporting the children to a magical world of elves and toys.
Whatever the season, an overall great day out for the family. And remember to stop by at the souvenir shop on the way out. Popeye village is also a great venue for parties, games and incentives of all kinds.
