Sliema is the main coastal resort on Malta, it is also a very large residential area. If you like a little sightseeing in your holiday, combined with sports
and good food, Sliema fits the bill. This busy – and still growing – town focuses on The Strand, a broad promenade with views of Valletta 0.5km
to 1km away. Sliema’s shops are among the best on the island - look for Maltese lace, fine silverware, pottery, and woolens. When night falls Sliema’s
bars and restaurants are relaxed and mellow in mood with a cosmopolitan feel.
Ensure you see the fabulous view of the magnificent fortifications and church domes of Valletta rising high above Marsamxett harbour, from The Strand in
Sliema. This is one of the best views of Valletta available.
The Sliema seafront runs from St Julians in the north to near Manoel Island and Gzira in the West. For most of this distance there is a wide promenade
with seating, cafes, children's playgrounds statues and fountains. In some areas these facilities are on different levels.
Most of the promenade is backed by the busy main roads, Tower Road and The Strand. Several bus routes run along these roads see below
The promenade overlooks a flat bed rock beach, 2 swimming pool lidos and hotel pools at the Qui Si Sana end
The tip of the peninsula is under development and not accessable
There is a small strip of golden sand where Sliema meets St Julian's. The Sliema coast along Tower road consists of wide promenades fronted with flat, rocky
beaches with water sports and 2 swimming pool lidos. Besides hotel pools and sun terraces the golden flat rocks are popular with sun worshippers. There is
easy access to the sea for a cool down in the hot summer months.
