It's no surprise Sliema holidays are a popular choice in Malta, the seafront resort is a stone's throw from the stunning capital of Valetta and the hotels, nightlife and entertainment along its famous promenade is hard to beat. A cosmopolitan feel and with a good sprinkle of classy bars and cocktail lounges, this is the perfect place to unwind and relax.
Sliema has some of the best views across the glittering sea to the golden-hued buildings of Valetta. With most resorts offering activities and play zones for children, watersports on offer in the bay and loads to do when the sun sets, holidays in Sliema are a safe bet for all ages. Sliema is home to the island's largest mall, so those who love to shop on holiday will be happy. And for those who love excursions, Malta has so much to offer from cruising through Valetta's grand harbour, to taking the kids to pretty Popeye village and exciting scuba diving sites to try out. If you’re looking to taste some gastronomic delights, MedAsia Fusion, Charles Grech Bistro and Ta’ Kris will impress with their amazing local and fusion menus.
Take a day boat or ferry across to the quieter island of Gozo - just remember to pack your snorkel as the water is incredible - or learn to sail, water-ski or scuba off the coast of Sliema. Comino, though smaller, is also a watersports haven and is famous for its Blue Lagoon, an inviting pool of clear aquamarine water. Head further north for an evening to check out the resorts near St Paul's Bay or take a tour of some of the island backdrops used in the famous series Game of Thrones.
