Overview

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.

Overall Guide : The Sliema promontory offers on one side stunning views across to Valletta and on the other, open sea views. The promenade, which runs for several kilometres from Gzira just south of Sliema to St Julian's, is ideal for... more walker and joggers. There are plenty of seats along the promenade and on summer evenings the seafront becomes a sociable meeting place for locals. The coastline has two tower fortifications: a De Redin watch tower built in the 17th century; the other was built by the British in neo-gothic style in the 1880s.

Overall Guide : SLIEMA IS OVERCROWDED. PARKING PROBLEMS ARE THE DAILY ISSUE PLUS THE DIRT WHICH IS BEEING CAUSED BY BARS, RESTAURANTS AND CLUBS WHO LEAVE THIER LITTER IN PLASTIC BAGS ALL OVER SLIEMA. ESPECIALLY ON SUNDAYS. ALSO NOISE LEVELS ESPECIALLY WHERE RESIDENTS... more ARE CONCERNED ARE THE ISSUE OF THE DAY WITH SOME COURT CASES ALL IN VAIN. SAVE SLIEMA STOP ALL THE RUBBISH AND CREAT PARKING

Overall Guide : Gozo is an interesting and beautiful island, and you really must go for a swim in Comino. St. Julien is the place to spend the evening, both to eat and to have fun. Don't forget to have a quick go... more on the roulette at the Dragonara Casino.

Overall Guide : Friendly place and people. Good choice of restaurants and shops. Safe. Go for a more up market hotel as some of the 3 star ones are a little dated. Transport to other parts of the island good, don't make the... more same mistake as us and hire a car, parking is horrendous and the road system in dire need of upgrading.
Not to be missed Fernandes Sunset Cruise , Blue Grotto
