Marina Hotel Malta is a lovely modern hotel situated on the Tigne/Sliema seafront. This charming hotel is ideally positioned along the picturesque sea-front Promenade amongst cafe’s and restaurants
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 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, 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 popular Sliema ferry which crosses over to Valletta is located only 100 metres from this hotel whilst local bus connections to all areas of the island are also found directly next to the hotel. The cosmopolitan night resort of St. Julians is located just to the north of Sliema and can be reached either by walking along the promenade or taking a short bus ride. Sliema is also the main port in Malta for pleasure cruises and you can board a boat and enjoy a day out yet still be back in time for dinner.
