With its laid back atmosphere and stylish appeal, it’s no wonder that Sliema is Malta’s largest resort. Sitting on the island’s north coast separated from the capital, Valletta, by a pretty harbour, Sliema is perfect for all manner of holidays. Whether you’re looking for some fun-filled family time, a romantic retreat or a relaxing break with your friends, this lovely destination has it all.
If you’re after a sun-drenched getaway by the sea, look no further than Sliema. Malta has some of the best weather across the whole of Europe, and a beautiful island setting in the Mediterranean between Sicily and North Africa. Sit back and soak up some golden sunshine at one of the lidos dotted along the coast, and spice up your day with some water sports or scuba diving.
When it’s time to explore, there’s lots of fascinating ancient history around Malta, which is nice and small for getting around. Hire a car to visit prehistoric temples, or go sightseeing in Sliema itself. Stroll around the seafront to Manoel Island, or spend some time in the peaceful surroundings of one of the local churches. If you need to keep the kids entertained, there’s everything from marine parks to water parks.
Soak up the culture in Valletta by taking the short ferry across the harbour, or set sail on a boat trip to the small and peaceful islands of Gozo and Comino. When it’s dinner time, feast on local specialities like the freshly caught seafood. Settle down for the evening at the pretty Sliema Marina as you enjoy the atmosphere of this incredible destination.
