Sliema is one of the most established coastal resorts on the island of Malta. Activity tends to predominantly focus on the Strand - a broad promenade which spans 5km and heads north towards the resort of St Julians along which you can experience spectacular views of Valletta, the capital city of Malta.
Once a tiny fishing port, Sliema has since developed into a busy and popular resort which is home to both upmarket hotels and impressive residential dwellings, making it popular with both tourists and locals alike.
