Sliema Overview

Sliema is located on the east coast of Malta approximately 5km from Valletta. Alternatively it is also accessible by ferry from Valletta. Sliema is the main coastal resort on Malta and is also a very large residential area together with a main shopping complex. A broad promenade known as The Strand has magnificent views of Valletta across the water.
Sliema has no sand beaches, though in Malta any stretch of waterfront that gives access to the sea is termed 'beach'.
Various boat trips leave from the bay area to tour around the Grand Harbour, and also a number of hop on/off sightseeing buses leave from the main area to all areas of the island.

Sliema's nightlife is relaxed with a cosmopolitan feel.
