Sliema Hotels

Mini guide to Sliema


Situated eight kilometres around the harbour, west of Valletta, is the resort of Sliema. This bustling town is Malta's largest tourist retreat, with an expansive beach and a profusion of busy restaurants overshadowed by the ever increasing high-rise hotels.

Each morning, the harbour is frenetic with people boarding cruise ships; while in the evening, the view over the bay of Valletta is dramatic. At the other side of the peninsula, Tigne boasts a long seafront promenade, with Fort Tigne casting an imposing shadow over the area.

The beach in Sliema is expansive, scattered with flat golden rocks leading out to the sea. A busy restaurant and bar is nestled on the beach, and adjacent are large, shallow rock pools which are fun for children to dig around in. Many water sports are available throughout the day.

The cuisine on the island is somewhat pluralistic, with an abundance of restaurants to suit all budgets. The nightlife offers everything from ballroom dancing to the average beachfront bar. The larger hotels usually boast a late night lounge, with frequent floor shows.

It's worth taking a day out to visit the town of Valleta, which has a more historic appeal; a bus and ferry service is available at the harbour. For those pining for smooth sandy beaches, you'll find what you're looking for at the point where Sliema meets St Julians.

Mainland Europe has the best access to Malta. Air Malta has flights from a host of European cities. It also has flights between Malta and Cairo, Dubai, Damascus and Tunis. Other carriers with service to Malta include Alitalia, KLM, Lufthansa, Swissair and Tunisavia. Malta International Airport is located about five kilometres southwest of Valletta. Sliema is located 12.8kms from the airport and buses, taxis and rental cars are available.
