The beautiful coastal town of Sliema is set on the east coast of Malta and is best known for its magnificent promenade. An idyllic marina of turquoise seas dotted by yachts and boats and a soft, sandy beach are flanked by an incredible collection of world-class restaurants offering a diversity of cuisine and luxurious accommodation options. The promenade’s alluring two-kilometre path leads all the way to St. Julians, Paceville and St. George’s Bay, past the ‘Roman Baths’ (tidal pools), churches, watchtowers, and ice cream parlours. The ferry offers another way to take in the spectacular views, which include those of Marsamxett Harbour, fortified Manoel Island, and the bastions of Valletta. Shopping enthusiasts will enjoy the impressive offering of stores. Other highlights include Manoel Island, filled with interesting historic sites; numerous Art-Deco and Art-Nouveau buildings; and a world-class theatre and art gallery.
