Sliema, on Malta’s eastern coast, has developed from a small fishing village into a bustling holiday resort. It has managed to retain a distinct Maltese charm, alongside its great beach amenities and cosmopolitan feel.
The beach has rocky platforms, which are suitable for sun-bathing, and its shoreline has smooth pebbles, which slope gently into the sea. Sliema’s waters play host to fascinating sea life, and so attract divers and snorkellers.
Much of the focus of a Sliema holiday is on The Strand – a vibrant promenade lined with tasteful gift shops and classy boutiques.
By night, the resort comes alive with a whole manner of entertainment options, such as ballroom dancing, trips in a traditional horse and cart or fine dining. Its many bars and clubs allow visitors to get a little more boisterous.
