Sliema and the coastline up to neighbouring St Julian's constitutes Malta's
main coastal resort. It is a centre for shopping, restaurants and caf'e life.
Sliema is also a major commercial and residential area and houses several of
Malta's most recent hotels.
Sliema, which means `peace', was once a quiet fishing town on the peninsula across Grand Harbour from Valletta. The town began to develop rapidly in the early 20th century as a summer resort for wealthier Valletta residents. Their elegant villas and town houses line the quiet, inland streets.
