Sliema is one of Malta's main coastal resort towns and a heartland for shopping, entertainment and café life. The long stretch of rocky coastline that goes from Qui-si-Sana all the way to St. Julian's is thronged with sunbathers during the peak summer months.
Steps and handrails placed every so often allow easy access to the water. There are plenty of flat rocks to spread a towel on. The sea here is deep and generally clean, clear and safe to swim. It is also excellent for snorkelling. Some hotels along the front, especially at the St. Julian's end, provide beach concessions equipped with pools, water sports and lido areas for nightlife. The favourite beach areas are the Tigné area, Qui si-Sana, Għar id-Dud, the Exiles and Fond Għadir. Some are well-known lidos or beach clubs with public access.
In peak summer the Sliema beaches become a very sociable, lively place to be by mid-afternoon. The promenade is excellent for long, striding walks in winter, slow strolls on summer evenings and for watching the spectacular waves during freak autumn storms. You will find plenty of snack bars and restaurants on the coast road and kiosks near the shoreline.
The central position of this superior 3* hotel makes it an ideal base for exploring the islands of Malta and Gozo. The centre of Sliema is only a 10-minute walk along the seafront whilst the capital city of Valletta is a short bus ride from the locality of this hotel. Busses to all areas of the island can be taken from the main terminus' of either Sliema or Valletta, making the position of the Bayview apartments perfect for any time of the year. A rocky beach is located only 20 minutes from these apartments, alternatively one can take a bus to any of the popular bays in the north of the island.
