Being a reader of popeye comics and having watched the movie in the 80s, the visit to popeye village was a blast from the past. My kids, although they were not familiar with popeye, the really liked the place. This is essentially the movie set of the popeye's movie (staring the late Robin Williams). They have preserved it very nicely... More

Decided to visit whilst on holiday. Easy to get to on the bus. Reasonably priced entrance fee. Unfortunately the boat trip wasn't running as it was too windy. Kids (& us!) enjoyed making our own Popeye film. Lots of bits to see & things to do. Worth a visit.

We went here as we had some time on our departure day. The views are stunning and for a family of 1 adult a child and an infant it was less than 20 euro entrance fee.

I realise it is only April but this place feels like it is still shut down for the winter. Pool closed. No sun loungers. No boat trips. "Characters" look bored and still in hibernation.
